Hi I'm Becky Nelson

I'm a mother of 7. I love to read. I love football. I'm a stay at home mom and an accountant, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up being a Mormon and love every minute of it. I attended Brigham Young University and received a Bachelor's Degree in Business. I went on to become a mother of 7 children, 4 boys and 3 girls. Now I have 2 grandchildren. I also did Midwifery training for a few years but left midwifery to take care of my family. I do a lot of accounting work for people from my home. I love to teach and read.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents raised me as a Mormon and I knew since a young age that the Church was true. I know serving other people and being an example of Jesus Christ is the happiest way you can live your life.

How I live my faith

I teach Institute to adults. This is a class for adults to better understand the scriptures and prophets. This year I am teaching the Old Testament. We hold this class once a week for 1 1/2 hours. I love to study and get ready for the lessons.

Can you tell me about Mormon customs: how you dress for church, what holidays you celebrate, etc.?

Becky Nelson
Members attending Sunday services will most likely be wearing their “Sunday best,” which may include suits, sport coats, and ties for the men and modest dresses or skirts for the women. Children also typically dress up for Sunday. Members of the Church celebrate Christmas and Easter, regarding these two events as the most spiritually significant days in history because of the birth, suffering, death, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. I love Holidays! Church members also celebrate the regional and national holidays of the countries where they live. Church members also celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and similar events.
