Hi I'm Becky

I grew up in a large family. I am a daughter, sister and friend. I'm committed to making my life the best it can be. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a student of psychology. I’m in love with the power of the mind and human spirit. I really like to read books that make me think. I started running a couple months ago, making it a new habit. I have had a few random jobs in my life. I went to school to be a cosmetologist, I was a phlebotomist and I currently work with children with special needs. I have worked with these special little guys for about four years of my life. I have learned so much from them. I have been taught the most amazing things just from daily classroom interaction. When I see a child progress in an area where there was little hope, it brings me so much joy and teaches me about the power we all have within us to overcome anything that may hold us back.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this faith. As I grew and learned and had experiences as a child, I knew it was positive and helped me feel good. I think I committed to being a Mormon and what that really means when I was just a little girl. My parents taught me as a child to rely on prayer and to talk to my Heavenly Father when I needed comfort and strength. My father was sick with cancer when I was nine years old. My parents never acted as though he dying was a possibility. We all had faith In God, that he was watching over our family and that he would get better. In the fall of that year, the cancer finally took over my dad’s body and he died. It was devastating to say the least. All the members of my family were crushed. We found comfort as we relied on God and the things we were taught in the scriptures. I had been taught that if I kept God’s commandments and followed his teachings that I would be able to be with my family forever. That promise did not take the pain away or fill the hole that was left but it gave me the strength to move forward. I was committed. My family will be a forever family. Though I was born into this church, I stay because of what the teachings found here do for me on a daily basis. I know God knows who I am. I know he has a purpose for me on this earth and I know he is guiding me to him. Through the Mormon Church I have learned that I am a child of God. I have learned how to have peace and happiness in this world. Although I am not perfect, I have done my best to keep the commitment I made when I was young.

How I live my faith

One step at a time. I think the Lord knows his children well. I believe he gives us experiences to wake us up to the power we have within us. I live my faith as I trust in the Lord and let him guide my life. I live my faith by having gratitude for that guidance even when I don’t understand. I live my faith by trying to follow the example of Jesus Christ. I live my faith by standing up for what I believe in. I live my faith by sharing a small part of my story with you.
