Hi I'm Rebekah

I'm a Mormon. I love to draw, dance, and am pretty good at math.

About Me

I'm a college student who loves to draw, sing, and do Laplace Transforms. Art and math are my favorite subjects because, to me, they've always been linked at a basic level. Art needs math, and math is, in many ways, an art. I've been trying to teach myself how to play guitar, for the past several months. I found myself in possession of a Beatles chordbook, and have been working my way through it. Nothing motivates you to learn barchords like the desire to sing "For No One"!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, and it has always given me purpose. It has been a good force in my life, encouraging my to improve myself and become the best, kindest, smartest person I can be.

How I live my faith

I try to do my job, helping out where I can. I was asked to be the Relief Society pianist... an interesting calling for someone with rudimentary piano skills. I have never been able to play hymns, and so it was with many trepidations that I took this calling. And, indeed - I am hardly good at my job. Often, I can only play the right hand. I know that there are many accomplised pianists who they could have called, instead... but for one reason or another, I was asked to do this job, and I strive to do my best.

What is faith?

Rebekah
I was once talking to a man about the subject of faith. He told me that everyone had faith - a statement that I wholeheartedly agreed with. But to him, I came to discover, faith was synonomous with knowing something. You have faith that a pebble, thrown into the air, will fall to the ground. I argued that, for something to be faith, you cannot know it. Faith is beautiful, because it's a belief that you hold without proof. It't trust, it's finding certainty in uncertainty. And I firmly believe that every human being alive has faith in something. Show more Show less
