Hi I'm Rebekah

I live in a farming community in Southwest Virginia. I work full-time, farm, love my family, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I work full-time from home and have an amazing husband and family! We have 4 children and have a small farm in Southwest Virginia. We are currently raising sheep and we're learning so much. I enjoy cooking, reading, sports, hiking, and home improvement projects. We are still in the process of remodeling a once dilapidated farm-house. Hubby is pretty amazing that way. I love learning new things. I love the arts. I just love life. I love family and I love the gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon simply because I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ matches in it's fullness what is taught in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. My life is better because of the gospel. I'm a happier person and I know that life is meant to be good and happy. That doesn't mean that I don't have problems. The gospel just gives me a better perspective on how to work through those problems. I also am so grateful to know that the gospel is alive and thriving. We have living prophets on the earth today. Our Heavenly Father did not leave us to be alone with no direction on this earth. We have prophets who lead and guide us today. I'm so thankful for that! We are currently reading the Bible along with our Book of Mormon study in our family scripture study. My testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel has increased and I feel that it has helped to strengthen our family!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to always be positive and have a good attitude. I try to do this at work, at home, in my community, and I also try to make the gospel a central part of my home. We've had amazing faith-buidling experiences with our children that start out simple. I'm always impressed with the good things (and sometimes the negative!) that kids pick up from us parents.
