Hi I'm Rebekka Kunz

I grew up moving around a lot and playing soccer. I am preparing to become an elementary school teacher. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have a deep love for soccer! I have played for 14 years now as a goalkeeper and will continue my soccer career as a coach when I finish school! I love helping people learn whether it is about soccer or school curriculum which is why I am preparing to become an elementary school teacher. I can't wait for the day when I can help youngsters feel confident in their abilities and help them find a passion for learning...maybe even soccer!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the strength that this gospel brings to me in my times of need. I look back on all of the struggles I have had to go through and I know that if I didn't have this gospel in my life, I wouldn't have been able to make it through. This gospel is full of love and helps imperfect people find their way in the world. We have been blessed with the knowledge of a perfect Savior whose example we are blessed with to follow. I know that as I strive to follow that perfect example, I will become the person my Heavenly Father wants me to be! I will be someone that others can count on to be there, I will be honest, I will be chaste, I will be full of charity! The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints helps me become the best person I can be! I am also a member of this church because of the blessings and promises that come with its membership. First, I was baptized when I was 8 for the remission of sins and then I had hands laid upon my head (by my own father and a few select others) to receive the gift of the Holy Ghost which has acted as a protector and a guide through out my life. I am preparing now to go to the temple to make sacred promises (or covenants) with my Heavenly Father and through those covenants, I will be blessed beyond measure. I also have the amazing blessing to be sealed to my family for all of time and eternity which means that our family doesn't end here on earth. We will be together forever and share in each other's joys as we continue to progress! This restored church also has a restored priesthood, the same priesthood our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ had while during his earthly ministry. It is through this priesthood that our families can be together forever, we can be blessed beyond measure, and make the covenants and perform the ordinances necessary to return to our Heavenly Father again! The priesthood is one of the greatest blessings that I am blessed with!

How I live my faith

I am currently a primary teacher in my ward and I love it! The children I teach are so innocent and curious about who Jesus Christ was! I love hearing how they interpret the gospel and even how their week went! I get to hear some pretty wild stories! I have also been called to serve as a full-time missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I have been called to serve in the Illinois Chicago West Mission and I will be speaking Spanish. I leave here pretty quickly and I am so excited to be able to share what I know and love with those who have yet to experience it!
