Hi I'm Rebecca

I love Life, love People and love being a Stay Home Mum. I believe a smile goes a long way. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Stay Home Mum of 5 energetic children. I'm a wife, a daughter, a sister, a cousin, an aunt, a daughter in law, a sister in law, a grandaughter, a volunteer, a bookeeper, a member of the community and a friend. I feel valued and I value others around me. Like most women my week is really busy. My week consists of volunteer work at school, bookeeping for our family business, homework, music practices, sports, taxi services, chef duties, housecleaning, laundering, emotional support, nursing and as I'm sure we all know, much, much more. Although these tasks are mostly thankless and sometimes mundane , I love it. My family means a lot to me and I feel like my efforts make a big difference. I love to be out in nature, go hiking (especially where there is a great view), I enjoy bike riding, swimming and snorkling (where's there aren't any sharks), reading, doing craft, cooking, caring for animals, photography, watching a great movie and hanging out with my friends. Oh and I love eating mango.

Why I am a Mormon

Sometimes people ask me why I go to church on Sunday even though I live such a full life. The answer is simple. I live such a full life because I know who I am and where I am going. I have a Father in Heaven who Loves me. My life has purpose. I matter. Nothing is more important to me than Helping my children know that they matter as well and better yet, we all matter.

How I live my faith

I believe everyone should have the opportunity to feel valued and loved. As part of my participation in the church I help organize classes that help the sisters feel this. I help run activities, service projects, meet with those who might be unwell or provide comfort to those in need. Like most of the women at church, myself and a dear friend visit a couple of ladies each month to ask how they are and see if all is well. Then vice versa. What a great program. I have made many lasting friendships and have a true love for all of these ladies. Life isn't always easy but we build each other up. Each night we sit together as a family to eat dinner, we pray together and we talk about our day. Once a week we set aside time for a family discusion and activity. I am grateful for these precious gifts. I feel at peace.
