Hi I'm Rachael
I am about to graduate from college with a Bachelor's in Exercise Physiology, my two favorite sports in the whole world are Ultimate Frisbee and wake boarding. I love country music - even the twangy stuff! I go country dancing on a weekly basis and have the time of my life. I love spending time with my family, all my siblings are grown up and married and so I jump at any chance I get to spend time with them. Also, my parents are possibly the most intelligent people in the whole world.
Why I am a Mormon
Because I know it's true. I have a firm testimony of my Savior and my Heavenly Father and their love for me. I still have trials and hard times, some times I bring them on my self by not living as strictly obedient as I should, and other times they come as a refining agent to help me become a better person, but I live in the comfort of knowing that Heavenly Father has promised that these will all work together for my good.
Please explain the part prayer plays in your life?
Prayer is so essential in my life. I love the fact that I can communicate with my Heavenly Father so easily. Prayer is always there no matter what you are going through, "sometimes you stand the tallest whilst praying on your knees." I am in the process (a life long process) of coming to know my Heavenly Father better, through prayer. He has answered my prayers in many instances in very personal ways. I know the Lord is mindful of me, and that He loves me very much. I am so grateful for prayer.
How I live my faith
The main way I live my faith is honestly just by being me. The faith I have is a part of my everyday actions, it dictates the way I dress, the way I talk, the places I go and don't go, the things I do, the organizations I choose to be affiliated with. My faith is literally a part of me. Other ways I live my faith include attending church every Sunday, keeping the sabbath day holy, contributing to Sunday school classes and loving the people around me. I am not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but I am working really hard to be the very best I can. I am trying to live a life of high quality, one that I know my Savior would be proud of.
