Hi I'm Rebecca

I'm a mormon and although I grew up in the church I had to come to know of it's truthfulness for myself.

About Me

My name is Rebecca. I love to get out there and live life! Whether it is trying a small jump snowboarding or helping out with the special needs at the high school. I grew up being encouraged to try everything from what my dad made for dinner to riding a bike. I've tried every sport under the sun and would never turned down a game of volleyball or basketball. I did drama in high school and plan on continuing the theatric arts now also. I love to smile and be happy. Kindness as always been an essential part of life for me.

Why I am a Mormon

As a very young child I was taught to pray. I would pray often and I knew he was there but as I got older I had to find out again. I needed to know if the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was true. As I started to study and live in a way that was right I could see all he had given me. I followed the words of Moroni in Moroni 10:4 "And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost." I prayed, although by that time I already knew of the truthfulness of the words. I felt in my heart a feeling that is hard to describe. A good feeling the I could not have created. It came from the somewhere else. I knew it was true. I use the Savior's atonement and felt the peace, hope and love that his atonement brings. I believe in God the Eternal Father and I believe he has a son named Jesus Christ who loved me enough to suffer for my sins. I believe they love us so much they still give us guidance today by prophets, The Holy Bible, Book of Mormon another Testament of Jesus Christ, Pearl of Great Price and Doctrine and Covenants. I love this gospel and active role it has in my life to make me more like Christ. I know that when I live it's principles I am happier and kinder to those around me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be the best example I can. One way I can be that example is by helping others as Christ helps others. In Mathew 5:16 it teaches, " 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." I may not be able to heal someone's sickness of lepersy however I can help heal their sickness of sadness or loneliness for the day. I recently finished a course to learn how to teach special needs kids. I feel that it is important to help everyone of Heavenly Father's children. I try to smile and give a helpful hand to others. I have been called to have the privilege to share the gospel as a full time missionary. I leave today and am grateful to help others be happy by knowing the love of their Savior and their Heavenly Father.
