Hi I'm Becca

I believe in having an adventure every day, I love exercisy things, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love playing sports and doing fun things! I love the field part of track and field, mainly the hammer, discus, and the shot put. I had a dream to throw in college and I was able to do that for a while before deciding to serve a mission. Racquetball is my second favorite sport and I feel so cool because I have a cool racquetball backpack and I own a couple of racquets. I love playing board games, especially Settlers of Catan with my brothers family. My strategy is to make it more difficult for my brother because he's just so smart and logical and good at everything. I love spending time with my nieces and nephews which is great because I have 8 of them. I love hanging out with my cousins and friends and making memories that last forever. At school I'm studying exercise science which I love because I love exercisy things but I don't know yet where life will take me. I created a bucket list that just keeps getting longer with all the adventures that I want to have. I love caramel popcorn and cake and would just die for some plums from my grandpa's garden.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I believe with all my heart that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true and restored church of Jesus Christ. The witness that this is true has been shared with me over and over again as I read the scriptures, listen to living prophets, and pray to my Heavenly Father. The knowledge of this truth shapes every decision in my life as I seek to follow Jesus Christ. I had the opportunity to serve a full-time mission where I got to testify of my Savior Jesus Christ every single day. I know that Jesus Christ walked this earth, died for us, and has risen again overcoming the bands of death. Serving a mission was a beautiful experience and I think about those experiences every single day, much as I think about my Father in Heaven every single day.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my very best to live the commandments God has given me. I show my Father in Heaven that I love him by going to church and in return I am blessed by increased motivation to do better the following week. I love to study the scriptures, especially The Book of Mormon, to know how I can face my everyday challenges. Reading The Book of Mormon helps me find answers to problems I face and gives me strength and conviction to continue doing what I know is right. I live my faith by enjoying life, and seeking to help others enjoy their lives.

What is the role of the husband and the wife in the family?

The family is the central unit of life. It is in the family that we find the greatest sources of happiness. Even though raising children can be the most difficult thing we can do it is also the most rewarding. Heavenly Father has entrusted mothers and fathers with the precious life of a child and that is so special. Husbands and wives have responsibilities to do all they can to teach their children about our Father in Heaven. These responsibilities can be fulfilled in different ways by mothers and fathers but they jointly share the responsibilities. Husbands and wives work together to raise their children in a loving environment. Show more Show less
