Hi I'm Becca

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Born into a Mormon family, I am the middle of 5 children. For most of my childhood and on through high school, I lived in a small town in Ohio. The high school I graduated from had around 500 students total, and for much of my time there, I was the only LDS student. This often made me feel as though living up to the Gospel's standards and values was of even greater importance for me because, for many of my peers, I was all they knew of Mormons. I graduated in 2009 and enthusiastically left for college. Much to my surprise, I met my future husband my very first semester, though I did not recognize him as such, at the time. He and I wrote letters back and forth while he was serving a church mission in South Korean, and we married in the temple shortly after his return. Our 1-year anniversary is now quickly approaching and we couldn't be happier! I will be graduating this December with a B.S. in Psychology, and my husband will be graduating a year later. Right now, we are loving making plans for the future while enjoying every moment of the present.

Why I am a Mormon

It may seem to some that the reason for why I am a member of the LDS church is obvious: I was born into it. But the actual reason is far greater than that. I am a Mormon because I know with a surety that this Gospel is true. It is difficult to identify one specific moment when I gained this knowledge, I think because there wasn't one. My testimony of this truth has developed gradually, over time. It has come to me as I have recognized the hand of the Lord in my life. It has come to me as I have listened to the words of His prophets and experienced the resulting joy in my life. And it has come to me as I have seen this Gospel completely change the lives of others.

How I live my faith

Currently, I work with a group of women in the church on what is called a Compassionate Service Committee. We strive to understand the ways that we can best help the women around us and make their burdens lighter through service. Whether it be by organizing meals for new moms or helping individuals who are ill or have suffered a loss, this work is a wonderful and rewarding work.
