Hi I'm Rebecca

I grew up in California. I go to BYU. I love soccer, film, and feeding people. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in California, born and raised. I absolutely love it here, and hope to someday end up somewhere on the west coast! I am the oldest of 5 so things were and still are a little chaotic. There is never a dull moment to say the least. I am currently attending BYU and just got into the Media Arts Program there! Everyone in the program is kind of crazy, but I think that's why I love it so much! I also love to play soccer. I've been playing since I was 4! I'm a firm believer that it's not soccer unless you play a little dirty! I also love to decorate cakes, and hope one day to have my own bakery! I’m Italian. My dad moved here when he was 15, so I’ve got the real, stubborn, love to feed people, Italian blood. I’ve been so blessed to be called and am currently serving as a full-time missionary in the Italy Rome mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that this gospel is true. It has been proven to me over and over again. I have truly seen the Lord's hand in my life. He has given me trials to help me grow. He has blessed me with an amazing family and awesome friends. He has protected me. He suffered for my sins and weaknesses. He has given me answers. He has given me comfort. He has given me a purpose. God has promised us so much if we keep His commandments and make righteous decisions. It it truly our decision to be happy, and our Heavenly Father shows us how. I'm a Mormon because I can feel my Heavenly Father and Christ's love for me everyday.

How I live my faith

I can truly live my faith by trying to remember that we are all God's children and we should treat everyone as such. While I might not always be perfect, I try to always be willing to serve with a positive attitude no matter what the situation. I try to not let fear control my decisions, and to not be scared of sharing what I believe with others. I've learned the best way to live and share my faith is to be an example, but more importantly to just be a good friend. I love this gospel. It has given me so much joy in my life. The best way I can show my love for others is to share this joy with them. Love is an action word. Just like Christ shows His love for me everyday, I want to show my love for Him and everyone else in my life. This was a big reason I decided to serve a full-time mission. I can show my love for Him by doing His work in bringing others closer to Him. I can't wait to serve and love the people of Italy as well as serve and love others I will have the opportunity to meet and become closer to before and after my mission.
