Hi I'm Rebecca

I'm a Wife, I'm a Mom, I'm a Grandma of 12++, I 'm a Registered Nurse and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My grandchildren refer to me as the "adventurous gramma". I'll never pass up an opportunity to learn something new. I am a fan of great amusement parks, rafting, & zip lines and chocolate. My favorite hobby is scuba diving and growing a garden. My husband and I have spent this past summer exploring new resturants and trying out new things to do and new sights to see. I am learning to quilt and can the produce from my garden. I am exploring ways to be more self sufficient and "green". I plan to learn to snow ski this winter. I am also a Registered Nurse and work at a local hospital's Recovery Room. I love being a, Wife, Mother, Nurse and Grandmother. I love "making memories" with my family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have experienced from an early age that the gospel of Jesus Christ is based on relationships. .. Our relationship with our Heavenly Father and the Savior, are the most important relationship we could ever develop. I have learned that I matter to both my Father in Heaven and my Savior, Jesus Christ. I know that I am a daughter of our Father in Heaven who loves me. He knows me personally and intimately. He knows my weakness and fears and yet He calls out to me (by name), calling out to me to live my life well so I can come home to him again. He provided a way for me to return home through the atoning sacrifice of my elder brother, Jesus Christ. How do I know this? I grew up in a small town in the East coast of the United States where our family was, at most times, the only LDS family. I was the only LDS person in my junior high and high school. I felt like an outsider most times, because I was "different" due to my religious beliefs. So, when I was 12 years old, I felt alone, afraid, and insignificant. I decided it was time to see for myself if the teachings of the Mormon church were true. Through years of studying gospel concepts, comparing them with the teachings of Christ, I gained my personal testimony. Through this 'adventure" of life, the one thing I have come to really understand, through studying the gospel of Christ, is we are not left to travel this life alone. We can have the companionship of the Holy Ghost with us to help us find our way and our Father in Heaven and the Savior stand with their " arm stretched out still" to help us in all ways. I am not insignificant in their eyes and neither are you. I love that the Mormon Church teaches us such wonderful gospel principles that allow us to understand who we are, where we came from and our divine potential and most of all that we are loved even though we are inperfect.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be a good example. I am not a perfect role model. I do try to be kind and not judge people. As a compassionate service coordinator, I have the opportunity to serve people when they are in need of help, love and a friend. I try to follow the Savior's example and how he treated people, no matter who they were or what they have done. Following the Savior's example of kindness, love and not judging has helped me be a better wife, mother, friend, and grandmother. It has helped immensely as a Nurse to treat my patients with respect and kindness.
