Hi I'm Rebecca

I grew up an Army Brat. I work full time as a Registered Nurse. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Registered Nurse, I especially love working with children. I'm the 2nd oldest of 5 children and love my family and spending time with them. I love being active and am a certified scuba diver. I look forward to all the adventures that I still have yet to experience in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was a child, my family went to many different churches. I don't remember much of what was taught or discussed, but I remember the feelings I had, and although no feeling I had was bad, nothing compares to the peace and love that I felt the first time I attended a meeting in an LDS church. My dad investigated the church off an on for about 9 years from the time my parents were married, because my mother was an inactive member of the church at the time. He joined the church when I was 7 and luckily, I was the first child in my family who was able to be baptized by my father. My testimony of the gospel has never wavered, but as a teenager, I had lots of questions and doubts, although most of those were related to myself and not the church. I had to decide early that I attended church for me, for the betterment of my testimony, and not because I had friends there. I was not converted by people or friends, I was converted through study and prayer and by the spirit. My mom has been my biggest example, and any time I have questions or doubts, I know I can turn to her and she talks me through it until I find an answer for myself. Everyone has questions, but sometimes, there aren't answers, and that is when I rely on faith, and that gives me the confidence and peace to proceed without one.

How I live my faith

I am a Sunday School teacher for a great group of 7 year olds that are all preparing for baptism when they turn 8 years old and their knowledge of the gospel and testimonies astound me every single week. I'm so grateful for the experiences I get and for how much they actually teach me. Soon, I will be leaving to serve a mission in the beautiful country of Ecuador, and although it is intimidating to think that I will be going so far from home to somewhere so completely foreign to me, my faith and testimony that this is the Lord's will brings so much peace and joy and I truly am so excited to go and serve the people of Ecuador.
