Hi I'm Rebecca

I am the oldest of 10, the mother of 4. I received a college degree at 16. I am a teacher an avid reader, and I I'm a Mormon.

About Me

The oldest of 10 interaction with children comes easily to me. I love that my husband supports me as a stay at home mom to my four children. I love learning and seeing the lights go on on another's eyes as they too grasp something new. When I'm not teaching or reading I will probably be found out of doors enjoying the world created for us.

Why I am a Mormon

As a teenager I wondered if the church was true. As I sought answers I realized that I already knew the Church was true. There have been times in my life when I've been overcome with depression, anger, pain, and stress. As I try to regain footing on solid ground the only constant I have found in every circumstance is the gospel. I've felt the tender presence of the spirit carry me when everything else has failed. I can't imagine giving up that source of strength, that one thing that allows me to get back up when I've fallen into despair. Would you give up something that has proven to you time and time again that it can help you? Especially when nothing else works? I know that this church and the gospel it preaches are true. Without that knowledge and understanding I would be utterly miserable in a hopeless and pessimistic attitude. The gospel gives me hope.

How I live my faith

Other than teaching both women and children at church I am lucky enough to have been asked to teach children from the ages of 3 to 12 the children's hymns. It is amazing the power of music and song in our lives. When other methods fail to calm or teach music reaches across bridges. I enjoy getting together with other women in my area. I learn so much from women who have been where I am at and I get to feel the love of our Heavenly Father for all of his children as I visit homes of others who are different than I am but also dearly loved by their Heavenly Father. It is much easier to remain strong and not feel alone in the world when you can gather with friends who do not question your beliefs and I get that opportunity a few times each week either in small groups where we can visit as children play or larger gatherings where we can work together to relieve suffering in our neighborhood or even our world.
