KARA: "You told me that you started a book club about 15 years ago. That’s an amazing amount of time to keep something like that going. Talk about your book club – what kinds of books do you read, how often do you meet, etc. What makes a successful bookclub?"
BECCA: "Other than my family, I’m most proud of my literary club. I started it in October, 1994. Our group fluctuates in size, but we have anywhere from 8 to 20 at the monthly meetings. We discuss a book we’ve all read. It’s fun. Because of the nature of literature, we discuss all types of ideas. I enjoy it both when we agree and disagree."
KARA: "Everyone has trials – I believe it’s how we grow and develop into amazing people. So, talk about trials. What do you do to get through trials?"
BECCA: "I believe everyone has trials in their lives. I believe some people are given more than others and some bring on their own by their decisions. I also believe that trials help to refine us into more Christlike individuals. Yet, I’ve felt that my trials so far have been very minor. I don’t live in fear of the future, but know there will most likely be a time I’ll be tried more than I have so far; I just hope I’ll find the strength I need when that time comes. I believe that if I’m living according to Christ’s teachings, I can turn to Him when I face a challenge and I will be given the strength to bear up. The key is that I need to bear it by turning to Christ, only then I can take any challenge that comes."
Join us again tomorrow as we continue our interview with Rebecca. We'll talk about being an organized mom, and what inspires Rebecca.
