Hi I'm Becca

I love art, I'm in China teaching English, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in southern Alberta and I love it! I am married to a wonderful husband and we are in China teaching English and loving every minute of it! Exploring all of the ancient cities and meeting the wonderful people! It's been wonderful to discover that God is still watching over us and blessing us here in China! I went to art school for a year. I love art in any form. I cant sing worth a dime, but I do love music and the spirit it can bring into your life. I adore reading. Lastly, I love ice cream and chocolate! I also have developed a deep appreciation for cheese in this cheeseless country.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because God lives and loves me. I grew up as a Mormon with righteous parents who always taught us the right thing. My Mother had also grown up the church and my dad had coverted at 17. Their testimonys have always been a beautiful strength to me. I held on to their testimony for some time, but as high school was ending, I discovered that I could no longer rely on their testimonies. I had to believe for myself fully, in order to make the decisions I was faced with. Through Jesus Christ's atonement I came to know this gospel is true and the only way back to live with my Father in heaven. I know I am a daughter of my Heavenly Father and that His son Jesus Christ is my Saviour and that through him is the only way to Heaven. I know Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God. I also know that today we have a living prophet of God, Thomas S. Monson. I am a mormon because I know this church is true.

How I live my faith

Being a Mormon in China is a very unquie experience. My husband and I are the only members in our city of over a million people. Every Sunday we call into our virtual branch and listen to church on our little cell phone. It is interesting how much those simple talks and lessons mean to us now. Being in China has definitly helped our testimonies grow. Every Monday night we try and hold a family home evening with the two of us. Myself and another sister from my ward email other sisters our thoughts on the messages from the visiting teaching message each month. It is sad that we are so far away from the sisters as that makes it hard to really get to know them. Everything is so different from what we are used to but still done in the same spirit. We will be sad to leave China, but it will be nice to be able to resume regular temple attendance again.
