Hi I'm Bekah

I love to travel. I laugh at basically anything. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Growing up, my family went on road trips every year. Yup - full out car rides sometimes lasting 12 hours! Having five siblings it could get pretty squished in our van, though it also meant there were plenty of people's shoulders to sleep on. (: As a result of our annual tradition, I've grown to have a love of traveling. There's always something beautiful to find no matter where you go, or how many times you've been there. If I could travel forever I'd be content. Laughter is a necessity when you're confined with people in a van, how else would you survive?? We had hours of jokes, teasing, embarrassing mess-ups, and unforgettable memories. I'm quite easily entertained, cause really I think life is easier if you laugh at the little things. Show me a video of talking llamas? Yes I'll laugh. Tell me a joke about what's worse than a worm in your apple? Yes, I'll still laugh (at both answers...) Oh, I just said "I need armer longs!" instead of "I need longer arms!"? I'll shake my head, roll my eyes, and guess what? I'll laugh. Pretty much my goal in life is to travel the world with someone who will laugh at life with me. (:

Why I am a Mormon

I've lived many places and visited many places, yet everywhere I go the church is the same. I know I'll always have a place that feels like home when I am away from my own. I love that I belong to a church that focuses on the importance of family. I love that it teaches us that Heavenly Father still listens to our prayers today, and that He loves us more than we can even imagine. I love the joy I find from reading the scriptures and following our living prophet, Thomas S. Monson. I love knowing that I can be forgiven for anything as long as I am sincere and seeking forgiveness. I'm a Mormon because it makes me truly happy. I know without a doubt in my mind that Heavenly Father wants us to be happy, because He loves us. I've known heartache and failure and disappointment, but through each of these I've learned there is always happiness when I turn to the gospel. It is the one thing in this life that will never fail.

How I live my faith

In my church I've been involved in many, many, many planning activities. We get "callings" where we are asked to do a specific task for a while. I've been in charge of the music for Sunday meetings (it was my duty to plan out which hymns we would sing throughout the year), I've been the Young Women class president (this meant I helped come up with cool things to do or teach other girls my age), been a part of multiple planning committees (having to work with large groups to put together camps, dances, and other events). It can be stressful at times, but when I see the outcome of all the work I've put in - that always makes it worth it.
