Hi I'm Rebecca

Hi, I'm the youngest of five children and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Massachusetts in an LDS family. I love the history of that place. I served a mission in Indiana. My time there was amazing I love Hoosiers. I know more about the streets of Indianapolis then any other city. Now I'm going to college in Utah. My major is anthropology. Some people have wondered how I can have a strong faith and still study anthropology. I know that there is absolute truth, I have been blessed to know some of those truths (I won't know all of it for a long time, but I can deal with some questions in my life). I consider myself an introvert, but that is not an excuse to be completely anti-social. I love to read. Snowflakes on my head, cold cheeks, splashing water, examining bones, and having fun with my family makes me smile.

Why I am a Mormon

I've gotten this question a lot. Growing up in the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints I always felt like the Gospel of Jesus Christ made sense. Faith, repentance, baptism, the gift of the Holy Ghost and enduring to the end. Over time I realized that I could not just believe off of an intellectual knowledge, I needed more. The gospel does make sense but it "feels" right. I have received spiritual witnesses of it's truthfulness. I am grateful I have the opportunity and responsibility to be a member of the Lord's true church on the earth. I know that God lives and loves me, His son Jesus Christ sacrificed so that I may live with them again, and the Holy Ghost guides me daily to follow the path.

How I live my faith

I read the scriptures, every day. I seek out answers to my problems in the scriptures and through prayer. I build my testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As I build my testimony I become stronger and I am able to strengthen and serve my family and other people I come into contact with daily. I try to stay positive and follow God and keep the commandments. Sometimes I do not live up to my potential, but I know I can repent and try again. Every Sunday I go to church and participate in the Sacrament, or communion, and I'm grateful for another opportunity to become who God (and myself) wants me to be.
