Hi I'm Bec

I grew up in Perth Australia, I'm a nursing student and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm a bit of geek, I love anime and manga as well as alot of Japanese Pop-Culture, I also love gaming - one of my loves is Minecraft :). I'm also a nursing student at University and I'm hoping to specialise in surgical or paediatric medicine. I love indie rock music as well as some more mainstream stuff. I love reading, especially the Twilight series and anything by Jane Austen and really love going to the movies with my friends. I have also been blessed to have been able to travel quite a bit including Japan, USA, Canada, Bali and several other places. I love seeing new places and meeting new people from different cultures. I think besides Perth my next favourite cities are LA and Tokyo, they are both so diverse and amazing. I absolutley want to travel more in the future and hopefully make my way over to Europe!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church with my brothers. I continue to live the gospel because it has brought my life so much joy and simplicity. I know that as I live the gospel that my Heavenly Father will bless me and my family with continued happiness. I know that this is the true church and that we are lead by a living prophet, who leads and guides this church the way Heavenly Father wants him to. I know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and that Joseph Smith translated it by divine guidance. I know that my Redeemer lives and that He died for me and that He rose again. I know that as I try to live the way He wants me to that I will be with my family again when I die. I know without the shadow of a doubt that my Heavenly Father loves me and that He wants me to join Him in Heaven again. I know that this is all made possible through Jesus Christ, my Saviour. I know these things are true and I know that as people read the Book of Mormon and pray to know its true that they will recieve an answer.

How I live my faith

At the moment I'm a missionary for the church and I'm serving in Melbourne but before that I helped to teach the children in whats called Primary. I've also had the opportunity to help organise activites for 18-30yr olds including a 70's themed dance and I've also been in charge of music on Sundays for the ladies. I have really enjoyed all of these opportunities and I'm looking forward to what I can do when I get home from my Mission.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

As a current missionary thats a great question. Being a girl I didnt have to go on a mission but I chose to spend the next 18 months of my life sharing the gospel because I know how much joy and peace the gospel has given me and my family and I really want to share that with everyone. I think of it like I have a favourite restaurant that has the most amazing food, with very reasonable prices. I'd want to share that restuarant with all of my friends and family and then with everyone I meet. The gospel to me is that restuarant and I want to give everyone the opportunity to to have a taste.
