Hi I'm Beca Mark

I am a mom of three, an author, an HR professional, and love classical and rap music. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I was born in San Diego, California, but currently live in Orem, Utah. I've never lived anywhere more than 3 years (e.g., I attended 6 schools from kindergarten through 6th grade) so I will most likely move again soon. I am the oldest of 14 children (7 boys, 7 girls; all from the same parents and single births; you may have actually seen my mother give natural childbirth to #4 on the movie, Miracle of Birth). I am married to a Matthew Mark (yes, his dad laughed when naming his son) and we are parents to two living children and one stillborn. I graduated with a bachelor's degree in psychology from Brigham Young University (BYU) in April of 2001. At age 19, I was BYU's youngest graduate of the year. I graduated with a master's degree in public administration (MPA), emphasizing in human resource management, from BYU in 2004. After graduation, I worked as Challenger School's Risk Manager and Assistant HR Manager. I wrote the book, Pros of Prozac: A Faith-based Memoir of Overcoming the Stigma, after experiencing debilitating postpartum depression and anxiety. To ensure my book's publication, I founded the publishing company, CTL (Consider-the-lilies) Press, Inc. and now act as its CEO/President. I love life and believe that "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me" (Phillipians 4:13).

Why I am a Mormon

I feel honored to be a Mormon, or a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. For generations, my family members have been members of this Church. I take pride in continuing this heritage. I love this Church and what it professes. I believe first and foremost that I have a Heavenly Father who loves and cares for me personally. I believe that Jesus Christ is the literal Son of God and the Savior of the world. I believe God’s commandments are a guideline for natural principles of everlasting happiness and peace (Exodus 20:1–17; Matthew 5–7). The more consistently we align our lives with His teachings, the greater our peace. Even though I am passionate about what I believe, I respect everyone who is searching for truth and a personal relationship with the Almighty God. I also believe that regardless of religious affiliation, we can agree on many things.

How I live my faith

In addition to being the music leader for the children in my ward, I spend my spare time building communities of support and healing online. LDS/Mormon Postpartum Support Group Page: www.facebook.com/MormonPostpartum Closed Group: www.facebook/groups/MormonPostpartum Our Mission: To provide helpful resources and a safety net of support for Latter-day Saint mothers who, regardless of their faithfulness, experience postpartum depression, anxiety, or any related issue.
