Hi I'm Rebekah

I grew up in Southern California. I play water polo and I'm a twin. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm a college student studying Exercise Physiology, hoping to become a Athletic Trainer. I love to play any kind of sports but most specially Water Polo! I am a twin sister who look exactly like me! We play pranks on people all the time to confuse them when trying to guess who we are! And I will be soon going on a mission to New Jersey to serve the Lord for 18 months!

Why I am a Mormon

Many people ask me how do I know that this church is true and not just a thing you grew up in? Because I know. I have asked God and he answered me. He didn't come to me in a vision or anything but he has testified to me through his Spirit, the Holy Ghost. I know Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ is there for me. They listen to my prayers and answer them. I had this experience that gave me a better testimony of the reality of our Heavenly Father does listen to each and one of our prayers and that he knows us individually. My family has been going through a ruff time this past year. On a certain Sunday I woke up and received a text from my family about our ruff time. It put me in anguish for my families pains. Later that day a friend came over and she said she had received a prompting from the Holy Ghost that she needed to talk to me for some reason. In that instance I knew for a certain, without any doubt in my mind that Heavenly Father cares for me. I didn't pray for someone to come to help me. He knew I needed comfort and he sent someone to help me. There is no doubt in my mind that there is a God. That the Savior who boure all of our pains, affliction, and sins is there for me. Without him just one mistake of mine would disqualify me to be able to live with him someday. But through the atonement, Christ's Sacrifice, I can repent of my sins and mistakes and live with him again.

How I live my faith

Living my faith isn't just about going to church and saying I'm a member. I did grow up in this church but that is not the reason why I'm still here at this church. I know this church is true with no doubt in my mind. Yes i don't know everything about the gospel. However, that is the great part! We keep learning new things through the spirit and it teaches me everyday. I try everyday to be a better disciple of Christ. You know why? Because he gave me everything. He gave us all everything. Without the Savior's sacrifices I would be nobody, nothing; my life would have no purpose. But It does, because of the Savior. And one day when I return to him I am going to jump into his arms and give him a great big hug for everything he has done for me!
