Hi I'm Becca Jean

I did Theater in High School. I love math. I'm a Mormon

About Me

Theater has been a very big part of my life; when I was 4 years old, my mother took me to my first Shakespeare play. In high school I became very involved in our drama program. I built set, stage managed, acted, and I was even able to student direct. Theater has given me confidence, and enabled me to develop my talents and leadership skills. I am also a math geek! I know that doesn't usually go with Theater, but it seems to have worked for me. As a little kid, I really struggled to read and write, but math always seemed to come easy to me. My senior year of high school, I became one of the very first students from my school to pass the A.P. Calculus exam. I am working on getting my degree in math education. My goal is to become a high school math teacher, and hopefully get a job at my high school. I want to be able to encourage and inspire students to learn math. It can be a hard subject to grasp for a lot of people, but with a little care and attention from a teacher can make all the difference, and I would really like to be that difference. On top of all that I also love working on cars. My dad is a mechanic and a welder, and I'm pretty sure he used to wish I was a boy. Needless to say, he taught me a lot about both. For my 15th birthday he bought a gorgeous (but rundown) 1993 Ford F150 from his brother, and told me if I wanted to drive it (which of course I did) I had to fix it first. Working on that truck gave me a deep appreciation for cars.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because my parents are Mormon, but more importantly than that, I am a Mormon because I believe in my Lord Jesus Christ. I have a testimony that he sacrificed himself, so that I, and everyone else in the world, can repent and have eternal life. I also believe that through Joseph Smith, Christ restored his church and his true Priesthood on the earth, and that because of that we have a living Prophet today. I stated earlier that I love math. Well I also love Physics, Biology, Anatomy, and History (I'm a geek and I love it). In all of academic study I've learned that the scripture and the Gospel have understand these concepts so much better. In my mind the Gospel just make sense of the world around me. So I am Mormon because it brings light, truth and understanding to my life like nothing else I have ever experienced. I know these things are true with all of my heart, and I am a Mormon because I have a sure testimony of this Gospel.

How I live my faith

I have always liked going to church, but it wasn't until I got my first actual calling that I loved church. When I was 12 I was called to be the secretary for my class of young women (ages 12-13). Later I was asked to be the president of that class, and I a served in similar leadership positions throughout the rest of my teenage years. I learned to love the girls I was serving with all of my heart, and I definitely had to rely on the Lord in order to stay organized. These calling were definitely preparation for some of the things I did in high school. More than that though, they were preparation for being a youth director. They summer between our junior and senior my best friend and I were called to be the youth directors for our stakes girls camp. This was by far the biggest calling either of us had been given at this point, but we trusted in the Lord, and relied on the faithful young women we had been assigned to teach and serve. When I moved for college I joined a singles ward where I had my first chance to be a visiting teacher. It was absolutely amazing! Not only did I get to look out for and teach these sisters in my ward, I also made new friends in my companion and in the girls we were assigned to teach. I am extremely grateful to have had the chance to interact with these ladies, under the Lord's direction. I know now that all of these experiences were in preparation for the next chapter of my life. I put my college education on hold to serve a Mission. I am extremely excited to leave everything behind, and turn my life over to the service of my God for the next 18 months. I was born and raised in the Gospel, and it has been taught to me all my life. It has brought me so much joy and peace, and the more I think about that, the more I realize how unfair it was that I got that peace and joy in my life from birth when so many go through life without even a glimmer of hope. So I can't wait to share the Gospel with others so they can have the happiness I have.
