Hi I'm Becca Newsom

I live in Las Vegas, Nevada. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in Las Vegas as a wife and a mother of three small children. I am blessed to be able to stay at home with my kids. As hard as it is, it's a rewarding experience.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I want to be. It was a choice I made for myself. I love the safety and peace I feel from knowing that we all have a purpose here on earth and this is part of God's plan. I gained my own testimony of Jesus Christ and that he lives. I know he is God 's son. I know that if I strive to keep the commandments and serve others, I can live with my Heavenly Father again someday. I know that families can be together forever.

How I live my faith

I currently teach the youth at church. As much I teach, I learn so much more. As I teach such things as dressing modestly, having clean language, and avoiding degrading media, I also strive to live these principles. Prayer and scripture study have become even more important in my life. I feel like my role as a woman, wife, and mother is strengthened. I love the opportunities that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has given me.
