Hi I'm Rebecca

I grew up in a family of 7 in small-town Wyoming. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I recently graduated high school in a small Wyoming town. Shortly after I accepted an appointment to a military academy where I am going to college. I am not able to go to the single's ward because it is too far away, but I am the nursery leader in the family ward nearby. When I am on leave, I enjoy going home and doing activities with my family of 7. We love skiing, camping, horse-riding, road trips, and music. I also play the cello and piano and participate in cross country and boxing at the academy.

Why I am a Mormon

I never really had to question if the church was true; I always knew it in my heart. Just going to church on Sundays, attending other activities (seminary, girl's camp!), and trying to do all the little things built my testimony on its own. I know that He is there for everyone and all we have to do is read our scriptures and talk to Him every morning and night. I know that this is the only true church on the earth today and it is worth it to obey every commandment. All He wants is for us to be happy, we just have to trust Him, even if we think we know what we want. Things always turn out better if we do it His way. I know that Jesus Christ suffered for all of our sins, and that He and Heavenly Father love us more than we can imagine. We can't possibly repay them for all they have done, but they will accept our best. We just have to be willing to give it.

How I live my faith

I was blessed enough to be born and raised in the church. Growing up, there were not many Mormons in my town but everyone knew who we were and I had an amazing young women's group including my two best friends and my little sister. I have a huge testimony of young women's and how much it can help. We had so much fun together and kept each other strong in the church. At the Academy, I am the only active LDS girl and there are only three other LDS guys. If I didn't have the strong background that I have it would be so easy to falter, especially with so many people asking me questions. But I know that all the things I have accomplished, including basic training and rigorous academics, would not be possible for me without the help of Heavenly Father. He holds my hand every step of the way. Even though it takes valuable time, I perform much better if I remember to always read my scriptures, pray, pay my tithing, and pray. If I do what He asks, He is there to help me when I need it (which is a lot).
