Hi I'm Rebecca

I'm my mother's daughter, a friend, a scholar, a feminist, and a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a university student and a student of life. I've recently discovered that nothing beats spending time with my family. I love a good adventure whether it be hiking or biking off-trail or following whatever city street calls me to the yet undiscovered. Experiencing and creating poetry, fiction, art, and music are my other constant fixes for adventure.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because even in the times when I've studied and entertained the idea of pursuing other belief systems, I can't deny that I know that the Book of Mormon is scripture inspired by God to open my own and every truth-seeking individual's eyes to God's love for us and His gift of the atonement which frees us and enables us to transcend mortality and mortal fallibility. I'm a Mormon because after serious study I've felt in my heart and in my mind that Joseph Smith, who was called of God to translate the Book of Mormon, was instructed by God and Jesus Christ to restore the original Church of Jesus Christ to the earth today. I'm a Mormon because there is no greater joy than leading a life focused on family and Christlike love and inspired service.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by treating every person I meet with the respect and loving kindness they deserve as children of God. I focus my scholarship, my service in my community, and my political activity on aiding others to raise themselves above the difficult circumstances they find themselves in. I find daily assurance from our Heavenly Father through prayer, scripture study, and action. I love discussing the application of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in any setting and with anyone but have found that there is something extraordinary about Sunday meetings that enriches my life and helps me direct my focus to the "things that matter most."
