Hi I'm Becca

I grew up in Washington state and Utah. I'm a college student majoring in Art Education. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love art, writing, theater and anything creative. I'm a freshman majoring in Art Education. I grew up with my mom and sister and then when I was ten I moved in with my aunt and uncle. I have lived with them ever since and was adopted at age 15. I now have four other siblings. My favorite thing to do is paint.

Why I am a Mormon

My mom did not really go to church much when I was little. But I had always known that God loves me and church is where I felt His love the most. When I was nine she stopped going to church completely. It was a really hard time in my life and I was living in a very bad environment for a child to live in. We had just barely moved close enough to a church building that I could walk. So as a ten year old I would walk to church. The neighborhood was ghetto and scary but I got courage to walk to church one day because I knew that there I would feel God's love for me, and that is not something I felt very often at home at the time. I kept walking to church every Sunday and I loved the feeling I felt there. Ever since then I have continued to go to church, and study my scriptures, and be obedient. I have grown to love every part of the gospel. I know God loves me, and I know that the scriptures speak the word of God. I love God, and I want to do everything He asks me to do. I am so grateful I made that decision as a ten year old to walk to church by myself. My life is so much better than it would have been if I hadn't and I have so many more opportunities now because of it.

How I live my faith

I organized events for activities in my singles ward. I am a missionary serving in Texas. I have served others who need a smile by writing nice notes, bringing cookies by, and shoveling driveways.
