Hi I'm Rebecca

I have a twin sister. I'm 6'3. I love the beach.

About Me

I have a huge family and I'm right in the middle. It's great. Everyone in my family is super tall, thanks to some good Danish genes. And yes, I do play basketball. Best sport ever! I've grown up mostly in California so Disneyland and the beach are some of my favorite places. I'm currently attending college however I am taking an 18 month break to serve a mission in El Salvador. I am so grateful for this opportunity to share the Gospel and serve the Lord. I feel so blessed to have the Gospel in my life and cannot wait to share it with others.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I love my Savior and want to become more like Him. This church is the best way to draw closer to God and feel of His love each day of my life. I know that Christ suffered for each of our individual sins and sorrows. He understands each one of us because He knows us. He has graven us upon the palms of His hands ( Isaiah 49:16; 1 Nephi 21:16). I testify that He knows us and loves us and will guide our paths back to Him. When we turn our life over to the Lord, He will never leave us. There have been so many times where He supports me when I wasn't able to do it myself. I know that He calls prophets and apostles on the earth today to help us to become more like Him and return to Him. I know He restored this church through the prophet Joseph Smith. I decided to go on a mission because I want others to have the opportunity to hear the Gospel and invite them to come unto Christ.

How I live my faith

Faith is something I see as an action. I show my faith through what I do. I attend church each Sunday and feel strengthened, uplifted, and set some new goals for the week. I read my scriptures and pray daily which helps strengthen my testimony of my Savior. I feel my faith strengthen when I help other people, whether it be helping my parents with chores around the house or visiting the elderly, serving others helps me with my faith.
