Hi I'm Becky

Just a girl from Idaho, making a life in the UK with my 5 children and husband. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up in a small Idaho town, USA. 30 something years later, I'm living an unexpected adventure with my husband and children in the UK. I have a degree in Dental Hygiene and enjoyed practicing full time until my second child was born. I am currently a full time mother of 5, wife to a man I love fiercely, and laundress and cook for 7.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have received a witness for myself that it is the true church of Christ on the earth. My testimony of truth has come from many small experiences throughout my life. I remember sitting in church as a teenager once, listening to a speaker. I don't remember what he or she was talking about, but I remember the feeling I had. That feeling was that I was being reminded of a truth that my spirit had always known. I have had prayers answered and been strengthened in times when I needed help. My life has been blessed with happiness, safety, and peace from keeping the commandments of God.

How I live my faith

My faith is something very personal and special to me. I strive to remember and follow Jesus Christ each day, by reading about his life, praying each day, and serving. My husband, children and I hold family prayer and scripture study each morning, and also close the day with a family song and prayer. We also have prayers at meal time. We go to church as a family each Sunday, and meet with our congregation to sing, pray, and bear testimony. I help teach young women, age 12-18, about the doctrines of our faith, but I learn more from them than I ever teach! I love the community and fellowship that I feel at church.

What do Mormons believe about family?

I believe that God gave us families to help us, and strengthen us, and believe in us. It is important for a child to grow up in a family where their physical needs are met, and where they are loved, encouraged, and learn how to interact appropriately with other people. I believe that home and family are where the most basic lessons of life are learned. For me and my husband right now, our family is a sweet, chaotic, sometimes very messy laboratory where our kids are testing, experimenting, and learning about themselves, and their siblings and parents. Heaven wouldn't be heaven for me without my family. We believe that through ordinances performed in holy temples, our family will be able to be together after we die. Show more Show less
