Hi I'm Becky

I'm a mother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've lived in Arizona my entire life. I have a son who is one. I have a wonderful husband who works and goes to ASU full time. I enjoy reading, baking, and sleeping. I love my family and my friends more than anything. I'm sarcastic and... I'm pretty awesome.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the LDS church. I was taught the gospel from my parents and leaders. It wasn't until I was 14 years old that I started to build a testimony of my own. At 14, the things that seem most important are your friends, how popular you are in school, etc.. I was struggling at this time as I found myself trying to choose the right while faced with difficult decisions. I knew I needed help. I humbled myself, got down on my knees, and asked my Heavenly Father for help. If we ask with a sincere and open heart, our Father in Heaven will give us an answer. I found amazing friends. I became closer to my family. I enjoyed attending church on Sunday. I was blessed for asking for help. I found out for myself that the gospel is true. No one did it for me, I had to do it myself. Of course, I still have times where my testimony is shaken. I am certainly not perfect. Life is not easy. We all have trials. We all have moments where we feel we are lost or alone. Do not forget our Savior. He died for us, His love for us is something we cannot even fathom. We must remember to ask. We must do this for ourselves. Life is supposed to be fun. We aren't here to be miserable. We cannot be perfect. I have found that living the gospel of Jesus Christ makes me happy. Nothing can compare to the joy I feel when I am living my life as Christ-like as possible. The Atonement makes up for my mistakes. I use it every single day. I know The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints is the only true church. I know our prophet, Thomas S. Monson, is called of God. I know he speaks for him, and that listening to his words will bring us closer to our Father. I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know families are forever. I know my Savior, Jesus Christ died for me. I know that I can be healed through the Atonement. I know my Savior lives and loves me. I know I am a Child of God.

How I live my faith

I currently teach the women of the church in Relief Society. I love listening to the words they have to share. There are so many different experiences shared from women ages 18-80. I always feel I learn more from them than from the lesson I prepared. It is wonderful to have a place to gather together as sisters and share our stories and our testimonies.
