Hi I'm Rebekah

I'm a 3rd grade teacher. I love spending time with family and friends. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a recent BYU student who is in my first year of teaching 3rd grade. I love kids. Everyday is an adventure as I learn and grow with my students. When I'm not teaching you can find me spending time with my family laughing together, playing games, or just being near one another. I love to read, play music, hang out with friends, and serve in my current calling. I'm always up for a new adventure and love trying new things.

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky enough to be born into a strong LDS family who loves the Lord. Growing up I was taught the principles of the gospel, but was given the opportunity to choose for myself. When I was eight years old I decided to enter the waters of baptism and make important covenants. I made that decision for many reasons, but the most important reason to me, was to have the opportunity to have an eternal family. My family is my everything. I love them and cherish the time we spend together. I cannot imagine not being with them in the eternities. Thankfully, we have the blessing of eternal families where we are sealed together in this life, and in the life to come. How amazing is that? Throughout my life I have learned more about the gospel, and my testimony has been continually strengthened. As I have learned about and applied the atonement in my life, I have felt the pure love of my Savior. We are blessed sons and daughters of a Heavenly Father who loves us. He has sent his Only Begotten Son to atone for our sins so that we can return to live with Him again. Throughout my young life I have been given the opportunity to serve in various callings in the church. These callings to serve have blessed my life in numerous ways. I have learned hard work, I have learned the importance of service, I have learned to love others more deeply than myself. I have met new friends. I have been strengthened. That's why I am a mormon.

How I live my faith

I love living my faith. I am lucky to live in an area where I am surrounded by many who share my beliefs. Although I am busy, I make attending my Sunday meetings a priority. I love going to church to renew my covenants, learn more about the gospel, and strengthen my testimony. I currently serve in a stake calling working with the Young Single Adults. I love meeting others my age and working together to strengthen one another, and to enjoy spending time together. Service is another important way I live my faith. Whether it's service to a friend or family member, or serving someone I don't know, I feel blessed and strengthened.

What is being a Mormon like?

Mormons are just like everyone else in many ways. We face many of the same challenges, difficulties, joys, and triumphs that others face. The thing that sets us apart from everyone else is our knowledge of the restored gospel. We have high moral standards, and are expected to be a representative of our Savior. As we study the scriptures, pray, attend church services, and receive personal revelation, we are doing our best to do just that. Being a Mormon doesn't make life easy. But it does make life more meaningful. Show more Show less
