Hi I'm Rebecca Prows

I love adventure, serving others, and my family. I'm a missionary, an art lover, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love to travel and have currently been to over 30 countries in my life time. My exposure to people of other cultures and background started very early in my life. When I was 5 my family of 9 moved from Utah onto a sailboat in hopes of finding new adventure. We traveled through the Bahamas before stopping in Jamaica to visit my grandparents who were on a mission there. Little did we know that that would be our home for the next 4 years. We loved it there and grew to love the people and culture. It was hard being away from family and friends but the lessons and experiences we took from the our time there was more than worth it. We then moved back to Fort Lauderdale Florida where my family is still living. My mother eventually was hired by Delta which meant we could fly for free. I took advantage of this blessing and traveled as much as I could before heading off to school.I love hiking, traveling, biking, yoga, sailing, scuba diving, my family, and I'm a hippie at heart. I think that every beautiful thing around me is evidence of God's love and I want to experience it as much as I can. I just finished my second year at BYUI where I studied Art and finished my generals. I am currently serving a mission in Rancho Cucamonga California. I love sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with others and seeing the joy that comes into their lives because of His love.

Why I am a Mormon

Ever since I was small I was taught that God loves me and wants me to be the best person that I can be. Jesus Christ showed us how to live and serve by His example and I know that as I try to emulate that in my life I will be blessed. I have found joy and peace in my life through coming to know Christ and his teachings. I know that each commandment has a purpose and that by obeying those commandments I can be happy. My life isn't perfect by any means, but I couldn't imagine not having the Lord to guide me. I was blessed to be born into the church but that didn't mean that I didn't have to come to know of it's truthfulness for myself. I had to choose for myself if I would follow Christ or the world. Each and every decision in my life led me to this point. It's not always easy, but it's always worth it.

How I live my faith

My life is based entirely on my faith. I'm serving a mission which means that for 18 months I have the opportunity to devote every ounce of time and energy into sharing my beliefs with others. I believe in following the example of Jesus Christ and living how he would. Part of that is serving others. I have found happiness through the gospel and I wanted others to be happy too. That is why I decided to serve a mission. The gospel changes people and it has changed me. It helps me find meaning and joy in this life. I know that I'm here to learn and grow to become like Christ so that I can return to live with Him someday. I'm taught to be kind and love others through my actions, words, and thoughts towards others. When we are kind and serve others we are showing them that they are loved and cared about. God loves and cares about all of us, so why shouldn't we do the same?
