Hi I'm Becky

I grew up in Southern California and I now live in the South, Atlanta, GA. I have almost 6 children and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Southern California and was born to a wonderful family of all girls. I was 7 years younger than the rest of my sisters. I was basically an only child. I loved being involved in all different things. Thanks to my mother who played the organ/piano from the time she was 11, I found a vast love for music. I have played the flute since I was in 4th grade and have enjoyed improving this talent. I also sang in a show choir while in high school and throughout church growing up. Music is all around me all the time. I also found a love for volleyball while in high school and was fortunate enough to play through college and then to a division 1 school in Chicago. But through it all, there was nothing more important to me than being a wife and a mother. I had amazing parents that taught me love and compassion and charity in a family. Laughter and games were always apart of our lives. I met my husband over the internet on a church website. After two weeks of talking on the phone, we became engaged and two weeks later we met face to face and were married 5 months later. Now, 11 years, almost 5 boys and a girl, 14 moves, 4 states and 2 houses later, we find ourselves in Northeast, GA enjoying the family and life that we have established for all eternity. I am a California girl at heart, but I have become a Southern Belle, enthused with the prospect of helping the good people of Georgia find the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ! I am proud to be Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a Mormon household and have been taught the gospel of Jesus Christ my whole life. But there was a time in my life shortly after high school that I really had to question what I was doing and why I was doing it. I always felt that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was true and right, but I didn't know why it was right for me. Through much prayer, study and an amazing support group through a young single adult program, I was able to find MY testimony of its truthfulness. Not a testimony based on my parents or siblings. But a testimony built on the truths of the gospel and the life that Jesus Christ lived. Trials and tribulations come and go. Successes and failures have come and gone. But the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has been the one constant and true part of my life forever and always. Nothing changes or goes away. It's always there. Even if you make mistakes, which I've made plenty of, I was always welcomed back with open arms. I now know with ever fiber of my being that the Church is true. That my Heavenly Father knows me and loves me and wants me to be happy and that He gave me His only begotten son Jesus Christ, to pave the way for me to join Him again someday. Through my works and faithfulness, I have been given the gift of eternal life and exaltation through the sacrifice and resurrection of Jesus Christ and the restoration of the His only true church.

How I live my faith

I live my life in the faith and am proud and anxious to do it to the best of my ability everyday! I am involved in the cub scout program. I help with the committee and enjoy encouraging these young 8-10 year old boys to be better citizens of the world. Boy Scouts of America is a wonderful organization and it has been a huge part of the Church almost since the inception of the BSA. The values that the BSA instill in the boys that belong are quite similar to those that we as Latter-Day Saints encourage in our youth. The church has been a beacon to my family in times of loss, sickness, birth difficulties, and most recently unemployment. Through paying our tithing and following the commandments of the gospel, my husband has been our sole provider and we have never lingered long without work. Tithing and food storage have been a large source of strength during difficult financial times and through our struggles we have found that by living these commandments, we have been blessed in so many ways and in ways that we never realized we would know. I am so proud to be a member of this church.
