Hi I'm Becca

I am a Mom and educator. I enjoy backpacking with my husband. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated with a BA in education. I have taught 6th grade in the public schools. I currently enjoy researching curriculum and implementing my findings with my own four children in a homeschool setting. I am active in finding ways to help my community and the children in it. In the past I have started a neighborhood preschool, a neighborhood soccer league, and am currently teaching a writing class for homeschool families. My husband and I enjoy planning adventures and going on them together. We have kayaked around Catalina Island (California), backpacked the Narrows (Utah), and summited Mt. Whitney (California). We hope our four children will become future hikers with us!

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are active members of the Mormon faith. They taught me and helped me understand the blessings and responsibilities that come from following Jesus Christ as a Latter Day Saint. As I matured through my teenage years, and into young adulthood, I decided that I wanted to pattern my family and future after the example my parents had given me.

How I live my faith

I feel that my faith encourages me to stretch myself beyond comfort zones, and find satisfaction, and growth, in strengthening others. I find myself working daily to strengthen myself, so that I can have the energy and understanding to strengthen my husband and my children. I find a lot of joy in working at having strong relationships within my family. This is a minute by minute process of sacrifice, patience, and "do-over's". And my faith gives me the tools and confidence to move forward, and a vision of the destination that I am moving towards. I have had the opportunity to work with children, youth, and women in my area. I have organized children's programs (that included 180 children!), I have helped youth conquer their fear of rapelling in a girls camp setting, and I have worked as a teacher for the women's organization. All of these wide-range of opportunities have come because of my active involvement in church. All of them have changed me into a better person.
