Hi I'm Rebecca

I love studying language and family history. I play the cello. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am in my second semester of college, studying linguistics and communications. I play the cello and the piano and I love to sing. I was a member of my high school's track team and I love to ski and mountain bike with my family. I love Jane Austen books and movies and I often watch British television shows in my spare time. I have grown to love doing genealogy and family history work and I love to learn more about my ancestors.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a part of this church my entire life, but that does not mean that I did not have to become converted. I grew up attending church and reading the Book of Mormon, but my testimony has continued to grow stronger as I have gotten older. I am a member of this church because of the true peace and joy that it brings to me. This gospel uplifts, strengthens, and gives hope to those who live by its teachings. As I have faced trials and temptations, the gospel has helped me remain happy and confident. This gospel has made me a much better person.

How I live my faith

In my ward, I am the music coordinator. I am in charge of choosing hymns to sing each week during our sacrament services. I also find members of the ward to volunteer to play or sing sacred musical numbers each week for our sacrament meetings. I sing in our ward choir and will be playing the cello in an upcoming musical program produced by our ward. I am assigned to visit two other women in my ward each month and I have become good friends with them. Each month, I share an uplifting spiritual message with them and talk with them about how they are doing. It is a wonderful way to get to know other people personally and I am grateful for the opportunity I have to help and serve them.
