Hi I'm Becca

I like eating apples, making other people laugh, and writing cheesy summary bios. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Kentucky born and Ohio bred, I am the third of four children and am studying Business at university. I love performing (read: ATTENTION), whether it be singing, piano, or more recently, sketch comedy. Going to school in Utah, I got into hiking, dirty diet cokes and appreciating the lack of humidity. I am interested in reading Wikipedia articles, re-reading Harry Potter books with my little brother, and investing far too much time on social media (twitter-@BexDaun, insta-@ItsBeccaSnitch). I used to say "hashtag" ironically, but now its part of my actual vocabulary so I suppose I'm a millennial through and through. I am hopelessly self-involved but the life long pursuit of becoming not that way is just the right amount of uncomfortably fun. I am waiting for the church to contact me about when I'm going to get my own "I am a Mormon" Youtube video, but until then- you may continue reading my page.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, or a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day because I believe it is true. It is the tradition of my parents and certainly I love that I was taught its principles from a young age, but sometime growing up I realized that if I was going to be keeping all these commandments and living by the standards, I wanted to be sure that I personally knew of its truth. I prayed to Heavenly Father, asking if He existed, if he loved me, if I mattered. I read the Book of Mormon and prayed to know if that was true too. In a thousand different ways, my prayers were answered. I know that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me, and loves us all so much that He sent His Son, our Savior Jesus Christ to die for our sins. Its true and even though that statement is simple, being a saint is less so. We heard recently in General Conference from Elder Dale G. Renlund that, "the Church is like a big hospital, and we are all sick in our own way. We come to church to be helped.” I am a Mormon because the knowledge that even though I make mistakes, I can repent makes me so dang happy! The gospel of Christ is all about love, service and forgiveness. The gospel of Christ gives me purpose to be better, tools like prayer and scriptures (like the Book of Mormon and Bible) to guide me in that pursuit, and the knowledge that I am a Child of God and He loves me. I am a Mormon because I know it is true and when I follow the commandments I am happier, better person.

How I live my faith

The most obvious way I'm about to "live my faith," is through being a missionary in Tucson, Arizona! I really prefer the cold to the heat, so it's about to be a real adventure. I am anxious to gain terrible tan lines and a deeper testimony of my Savior. I guess "living your faith," is developing an integrity that aligns your actions with your beliefs. I believe in being kind, I believe in being diligent and I believe in being Christ-like. So, although at times I have been mean, lazy or failed to uphold my Christian ideals, I believe through Christ's Atonement, we can be forgiven of our sins. Because of this, an integral part of living my faith is repentance. I live my faith by trying to be kind, trying to serve, trying to choose the right and realizing that when I make mistakes, I can be forgiven.
