Hi I'm Beka

I am a widow and a single mom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a single mom of a young boy. My son is my world and I would do anything for him. I went back to school after my husband died, so I could set a good example to my son. I am an artist with a passion for teaching.

Why I am a Mormon

I married my better half a few years ago, and I knew when I married him that he had a serious form of cancer. His cancer was going to kill him and that we wouldn't have children due to it. Many people asked me why I would do this, marry a dying man. I chose to marry him because I knew that my marriage could be for all time and eternity. I knew that death had no hold on it, and that is because God has given us the power to make families for forever. My wedding day was the highlight of my life. God blessed us through our pain and trials. To everyone's surprise we had a son. We were blessed, but we were tried. Just one short year after our son was born my husband died. I held his hand as he passed from this world. I went home to hold my son and tell him that his daddy wasn't coming home. Those days pushed me beyond my limits, but we made it through. Life is still hard, I miss him and my son misses him; however I am grateful that when he asks, "Were is daddy?” I can tell him. I tell him that he will see his father again and that is because mommy and daddy were married for all time. I am a Mormon because it gives me hope. It does not make life easier, but it gives me the power to endure the hard things in life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be a good person in every point of my life. I believe that Christ would want me to be kind and help others in need. I volunteer with my son’s school and extracurricular activities, visiting other women in my church and helping them with their struggles, working with teenagers and teaching them new things, and also trying to make small efforts to be kind to people I meet daily. I believe that being honest with how you act and treat others will show more of your faith than anything you can say.
