Hi I'm Rebecca

I'm quiet, loving, and friendly. I love music, books, crocheting, and nature. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am married to my best friend. I have three amazing children, three adorable grandchildren, a very sweet, fat cat, and two fun, entertaining dogs. I love music and if I lived within 100 miles of Temple Square I would definitely try out for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir (MOTAB). I gave up an opportunity to continue my education and get my degree to home school my youngest child. My goal is to start working toward my degree within the next six months. I am interested in business finance, banking, and accounting. I love to read good literature. A couple of my favorite authors are Charles Dickens and C.S. Lewis. I belong to a book club with a bunch of my friends. We take turns choosing the book and hosting. I love it! In my spare time I crochet baby blankets for family and friends who are expecting, read, play the piano, sing, and watch music videos on youtube. I have lived in Utah, Wisconsin, and Idaho.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and grew up believing what my parents had taught me until I was a teenager and then I began to question their beliefs. Although I remained active in the church, was married in the Salt Lake Temple, and continued to serve in my callings; it wasn't until after my first child was born that I decided to find out for myself if this church I had been raised in was really true. I set a goal to test the principles of the gospel by simply living them to see what would happen. The first principle I tested was tithing. It was really hard at first but as I continued it became easier and easier and I realized that God had given me back way more than the measly 10% I had been giving to him. I tested the principle of scripture study, of prayer, and of listening to the Holy Spirit. In all of these things I have been greatly blessed. All of my experiences have led to my conversion and my own personal testimony of the truthfulness of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I know that God lives and that Jesus is the Christ. I am so thankful for the atoning sacrifice of my Savior. I know that He restored His church back to the earth through Joseph Smith and that Thomas S. Monson is the prophet called to lead this church under the direction of Jesus Christ today. I am thankful for the Holy Ghost which testifies of truth and for personal revelation to guide me each and every day. This gospel has brought true happiness to me and my family.

How I live my faith

I talk to Heavenly Father every day to know what He would have me do. Sometimes I speak to Him in a more formal way on my knees but most of the time I have my own quiet conversation with Him while driving, doing school, or cleaning the house. Having the Spirit with me everyday is like having a best friend who is always watching out for me. Recently my husband lost his job. He has worked hard to find employment all over the United States. We have been very prayerful as a family to know where the Lord would have us live and work. This experience has taught me the importance of seeking for and following the will of God. Every morning before school my daughter and I have prayer and read from the scriptures. It invites the Spirit to be with us and makes our day so much easier. I currently teach the 16 & 17 year old girls in my ward. I really love my girls. They have each taught me so much more than I have taught them.
