Hi I'm Rivka

I'm from Oregon! I love my family, service, sports, and fitness. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm from a little town in the middle of no-where Oregon! I’m currently serving a full-time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Washington D.C. South Mission! I'm loving every minute of it! I have been blessed with the most amazing family in the world! I love volunteering, leanring, sports, fitness, learning, being outside, and spending time with friends and family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a wonderful family and have grown up Mormon, but this isn't why I'm a Mormon. I put the teachings of the church to the test! When faced with trials and challenges I had to seek for guidance and answers to my own personal questions through prayer and scripture study. As I applied those steps into my life it built my faith in the princples and doctrines taught, until I gained my own personal witness that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church of our Savior Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is our loving Savior and that His gospel is the path given to us to find personal happiness, peace, knowledge, and guidance in our lives. I know that our families can be together forever when we are sealed together for time and all eternity in Heavenly Fathers holy temples. Knowing this has brought me so much happiness, I know its true! I'm so grateful for our Savior, and know that he is our Redeemer, I know that He lives. I owe everything to Him.

How I live my faith

I live my faith one day at a time! I study, learn, and find joy in the scriptures and learning about our Savior Jesus Christ. We are all loved children of our Heavenly Father and knowing that inspires me to learn of him and to pray to him. Heavenly Father is there and wants to answers the questions that we all have. Such as 'why am I here?' 'Where did I come from?' and 'What is my purpose in this life?' Through prayer, study, and keeping the commandments of God we find answers to these questions. I know that I have!
