Hi I'm Becca Allred!

I'm an Elementary Education major. I love people and daisies. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Becca, I'm 20, and I'm a Mormon. I am a junior in college, and trying to figure out where I am meant to live my life. In school I am studying to be an elementary school teacher and I love everything about it. My favorite things are my family, friends, daisies, rain, and music. There's nothing more important to me than the people I love. I believe that people are inherently good; that we are here on Earth to lift each other up. I've failed, I've had my heart broken, I've been stabbed in the back, and I've fallen, but I've always been able to stand up again, because of the support of those who love me, and because of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the simple truths embedded in Jesus Christ's church. I see the reality of this gospel in my life everyday, and that, above anything else, is what keeps me going. When I reach out to someone in need, I feel the Lord's presence giving me courage. When I read the scriptures I feel the Holy Ghost reaffirming the testimony I have that they are true, over and over again. When I pray, I feel Heavenly Father's love. And when I hear the prophet and apostles speak, I hear the truth of Christ's teachings resounding in their voices. I love this church because it lifts people up and brings them together in the most righteous and charitable way. The pure love of Christ is echoed in everything the gospel and its people stand for. Do we make mistakes? Yes. But, we try; again and again, we try. And in the end, we come back to the center of the world because we know He will get us back on track.

How I live my faith

I am not perfect. I wish I could give you a list of all the incredible acts of service I have done, but I can't. I can tell you, though, that I live my faith by smiling at strangers who seem like they are having a rough day. I help the lady in the parking lot who can't get her door open because she has bags of groceries in one hand and a child in the other. I strive every day to better myself and become the disciple that I know Christ needs me to be. I pray for the poor in spirit and I work to be an example of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
