Hi I'm Becca

I'm hard of hearing, I'm a teacher, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a well rounded person that likes to be involved in all sorts of things. I graduated from BYU-Idaho being able to teach secondary math, theatre, and speech. I love serving people. I like shooting hoops, passing a football, throwing shot put and discus, and dancing. I also write my own poetry from time to time. I love to smile and stay positive. I absolutely love ASL--it's about the coolest thing. Little did I know I would marry someone who is Deaf. It's been a great blessing to take ASL classes and have friends and roommates who were able to help me keep it up so I could meet such a wonderful man. My parents are converts and so I have lots of family members who are not LDS. Yes, it's a different lifestyle, but I still love them because they are not only family here, but they are Heavenly Father's children too.

Why I am a Mormon

It all makes sense! It's logical--I love logic. Every time I'm going through a hard time, I know I can pray and my Father in Heaven is there. I know I can pray to Him at any time, anywhere. I feel close to Him when I read the scriptures, pray, and attend my church meetings. When I follow His commandments, there is peace in my life. Everything feels good and that all will be okay. There is peace in righteous doing. There is safety for the soul. I'm happy when I do as the Lord has commanded. I don't feel weighed down because I use the powerful Atonement by repenting for my mistakes. I know that with His help, I can overcome anything and do anything. This Church has made me who I am. I wouldn't be so optimistic and happy without it. It's a crazy and sad world, but so many great experiences and people that fill it. You and I are only a few of them. Together we can make it Home. God wants us to succeed, so he sent us his Son to meet our needs. With Christ, we can do all things and be cured of our dings. An eternal potential we each can meet, and one day stand before the judgement seat. In His presence will you be comfortable there or would you rather be in another's care? For me, I choose God--for His love is found all throughout the Iron Rod. It's real, just, and true. It's time to just be you.

How I live my faith

I served a full-time mission but now I'm back and more refined. Today, I strive to be happy and positive in thought, word, and deeds. I treat myself and others as children of God--a King and therefore everyone is a prince or princess--so we all deserve to be treated as one. God wants us to be happy, so why waste a moment not being happy. As the late Elder Wirthlin said, "Come what may and love it!"
