Hi I'm Rebecca

I grew up in Arizona. I want to be a school teacher. I´m a mormon.

About Me

I love to play the piano and sing. I like to be healthy, and so I exercise daily and do not eat sugar or white flour. I have a large family with many cousins, and to keep track of them, I sing a song containing all of their names. I am a college student studying elementary education. I know that I have many blessings in my life - family, friends, security, health, and education. I want to be able to share my blessings with others, and I want to be an influence for good. This is why I want to teach school.

Why I am a Mormon

I first read the Book of Mormon when I was eleven years old, and that is when all the things I knew about the gospel came together into a simple but strong testimony of its truth. Since then, I have had many experiences that have helped my testimony grow. Yes, I was baptized at age 8 because I grew up in the church and never doubted it, but I was personally converted in my youth. I know that Heavenly Father is my father, that He loves to talk with me and I can talk to him through prayer, at any time, any place, and on any subject. I know that I love the Savior Jesus Christ, and that He performed His Atonement for me. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is also true. I recommend these things to absolutely everyone. Please, read the introduction (or some other part) of the Book of Mormon and then read Moroni 10:3-5. Do your part of Moroni's promise - ask God if these things are not true. I know without a doubt that if you ask with real intent, He will tell you it is true, for I have done it myself.

How I live my faith

I have had several callings in the church. I have been a teacher to women, a coordinator of visiting teaching, a ward missionary, and a women's activities committee member. Visiting teaching is a system of two women being assigned to visit other women in their congregation at least once a month. Everyone is assigned a partner in visiting teaching, and everyone is assigned both visiting teachees and visiting teachers. I have been a visiting teacher many times, and through this, I have been able to take care of and help spiritually uplift many other women from my congregation. It has been uplifting to me as well, especially because I have been able to make so many new friends through this calling.
