Hi I'm Rebecca

I'm a fifth generation South Carolina Mormon. We never went west.

About Me

I'm a curly-haired, suburban homemaker with three kids and a mini-van, living the American dream. My husband goes to work every day. I stay at home to work every day. I graduated from college. I had a career after college. But when I looked into the eyes of my newborn first child, I knew what I really wanted. My husband and I both quit our jobs so we could move east to more affordable housing for a single breadwinner. He went to work, and I began my new career as stay-at-home mom. I now have three children and love being head chef, financial planner, travel agent, referee, chauffeur, housekeeper, event planner, muse.... I love to read and research. I keep journals and legal pads of things that interest me, for example, I have a legal pad showing the kings of England from before King James to Prince William today. Art and literature inspire me. I own several original works of art painted by my son's wrestling coach and art teacher. I often reach the maximum amount of books the library allows to be loaned out. I like to surround myself with that which might inspire me.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm Mormon for a lot of great reasons, such as the Book of Mormon. Ancient prophets and apostles kept journals and wrote letters. We're lucky enough to get to read what they wrote in the Bible and in the Book of Mormon. I'm Mormon because I love what the church teaches, such as the idea that I can live forever with my family and that I'm free to choose and that I should be a contributing part of my community.

How I live my faith

I try to be grateful and let my gratitude lead me to serve. I am grateful for our free country where my children can receive a good public education, so I volunteer at school. I am grateful for our free country where I can choose where I want to live, so I serve as treasurer of our homeowners' association. I am grateful for our free country where my children have many opportunities, so I volunteer as executive committee chair for my sons' boy scout troop. I try to live a good life, to be a good person, to show those around me that I love them.
