Hi I'm Rebekah Strobel

I grew up in Connecticut. I am currently serving a mission in Winnipeg, Canada. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Before leaving for my mission I attended Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. Although I have not decided what I want to major in, I enjoyed the academic enviornment there, and I look forward to going back! In my spare time I like to go running, listen to music, cook, read, and write! I like anything that lets me be creative. I also love being outside and enjoying God's beautiful creations.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this gospel makes me so happy! Having the knowledge that I am a daughter of God has given my life purpose and direction. It defines who I am, who I want to become, and what I stand for. Knowing that I have Father in Heaven who is there and listening gives me comfort and securtiy. In a world with a lost sense of identity, I am grateful I have found my true identity through this church. When I was 12 years old, the Prophet challenged members to read the Book of Mormon before the year ended. I accepted the challenge. I remember staying up late New Year's Eve to finish. And I did! As a 12 year old reading the Book of Mormon for the first time straight through, I received the answer that it was true. It came to me as a warmth in my heart. Now, every time I read the scriptures prayerfully I get these same feelings. The Book of Mormon is true! This Church is truly the only way we can find peace in this life and exaltation in the next.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others. There is nothing better than helping those around you- whether it's just saying hello, helping clean, or being there in times of difficultly. I have found that I am the happiest when I am helping others. As a missionary, I have the opportunity to serve others by teaching them the gospel of Jesus Christ! It is just wonderful. Sharing my faith with others by example and by teaching is how I live my faith!
