Hi I'm Becky

Wife, daughter, teacher, aspiring writer, and advocate of addiction recovery. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Wife, daughter, teacher, aspiring writer, and advocate of addiction recovery. I'm a Mormon. My family is my greatest treasure. I am the youngest of 7 children, but my family continues to grow with brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews. My husband and I have been married almost 5 years. He is the love of my life, my best friend, and my better half. I am a teacher fulfilling my passion for children, education and serving others. Teaching is filled with contagious learning experiences. It is magical to help children explore the world. I find in return I am a student to their magical ideas. I love the watching the twinkles and sparkles of growing as my students change throughout the year. Over the past few years, I have developed an aspiration of writing. I love the way letters and words combine together to express meaning and feeling. Through blogging and journaling, I find joy in sharing my writings with others. After battling my personal trial with an eating disorder, I am a strong advocate of helping others find recovery. I find pleasure and strength in sharing my story of recovery with youth and women. The focus of my presentations is on helping others identify their individual worth and divine potential as a daughter of a King.

Why I am a Mormon

Light is the essence of goodness, hope, and love. The ultimate source of light is God. He has become my beacon of hope to follow in the mist of passing storms in my life. On the my life's journey, I have drawn closer to His light and power. God’s light blesses me with rays of peace, illuminates truth, empowers my spirit, and radiates strength to others. I believe my journey to overcoming an eating disorder was a test from Satan to destroy the goodness God sees in me. God’s light and Ed’s darkness are on opposite sides of the spectrum. Deception is the key of destruction with an eating disorder. My perception was distorted to believe I was worthless, a disappointment, and unlovable. These words were black ropes of despair that surrounded and destroyed me. Slowly with the light of my Heavenly Father, I began to unwind these dark ropes with the illumination of His truth. God helps me to see the truth of my worth, beauty, and love. His light allows me to see myself and others for their divine worth. I am empowered by God’s light. In each storm of life, my soul is guided by the light of His love. At times I feel tossed in the storms of life. However, as I look to the light of my Savior, I am empowered to keep pushing. His light strengthens and guides me with hope, peace, and love. God’s light is constant and unchanging never leaving me behind. Instead He shines His rays of hope to lead me to my true potential.

How I live my faith

Attending church every Sunday possible allows me to remember the promises I made at baptism and the lessons I learn while attending strengthens me. Inviting my friends and family to come with me to church to learn more about my faith is something that's important to me. I know this is God's true church on the earth. I must share it with others. Praying daily to my Heavenly Father allows me to give thanks and ask for guidance in my life. As a teacher, I share my faith through example. In addition to teaching basic skills of reading, writing, and arithmetic, I hope to teach my students leadership, character, and virtues through everyday lessons and example. My students have helped me discover that along the road of life we experience escalating growth with challenging falls. They have shown me it is not necessarily how many times we fall or why we fell in the first place, but our response to each fall that is most important. I am passionate about sharing my journey of recovery to young women and women of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. My heart finds joy and strength is helping others build their self-esteem and recognize God's infinite love for all.
