Hi I'm Rebekah

I served a mission in New England, I am a co founder of a non-profit organization, I'm an adventurer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My Name is Rebekah. I am served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Later-Day Saints in the New Hampshire, Manchester Mission! I love art, and anything that has to do with colors and sunsets. I love to spend time with the people I love. I am an adventurer and I love discovering new things. I am a co founder of a non-profit organization against domestic violence. I am a student at BYU-I, and I will pretty much eat anything, except meatloaf. I love a good movie, long hike, sunny day, corny joke, and a solid cry. I have always been a member of the church, but I find myself being constantly converted to the Gospel by the grace of God. My younger brother died of cancer just 2 months after I got home from my mission, and though that was one of the darkest and hardest times of my life, I could not have been able to handle it if it weren't for the Plan of Salvation.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know Jesus Christ lives. He has shown me how much He loves me through many of the blessings I have gained, and also through trials and tribulations. I am a Mormon because I know that if I keep the commandments, repent, and endure to the end, I can live with Him and my family again and that is the sweetest and greatest thing I could ever imagine. I was raised in the church, but I first knew it was true, for myself, when I was twelve. since then I have found great joy and happiness in following the teachings and example of Jesus Christ. I feel a constant conversion to this wonderful gospel in my everyday life as I work hard to know and understand it. I know it is true, through reading my scriptures and praying to my Heavenly Father. I am a Mormon because I know that He lives, and that He loves me. I know that He loves me personally and I want everyone to know they have a Father in Heaven that loves them personally and completely.

How I live my faith

I love to attend Church functions. I love to go to church meetings and activities because it helps me feel a sense of purpose, and a closeness with my Heavenly Father. I love to attend the temple regularly, and I enjoy serving people with things that they need because I know that's what my Heavenly Father would do. I am serving a mission for the Lord, helping with the hastening of the work. I know that the efforts we put into helping the Lord spread the gospel throughout the earth is our purpose here and I am ready to do all I can to aid in the coming of Christ.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

I believe that a good way to increase faith in Jesus Christ is to put the faith that you do have, into action! Doing things like reading the scriptures daily, praying, striving to keep the commandments and serving others. These are all ways that will bring us closer to Christ and help us feel of His love for us, therefore increasing faith in Him. Show more Show less
