Hi I'm Rachel

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a lawyer working for the United States Government. I love going to work every day. I am also passionate about music--music allows me to feel things more deeply and can bring me closer to God. I wish I could sing every minute of the day.

Why I am a Mormon

For a brief time I worked as a prosecutor in DC. I daily dealt with individuals who dealt with severe difficulties in life--and not just the defendants. It gave me a greater appreciation for the gospel in my life. Through the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I have come to know God. This has not shielded me from the trials that we all must face in life, but this has instead allowed me to find joy through the trials. To see the hand of God through the storms of life. To feel peace and happiness no matter what the circumstances.

How I live my faith

I teach a weekly religion class to young single adults. I love teaching this class!! Every semester the topic changes but is centered around the scriptures. Recently I taught a course on Isaiah and loved the opportunity to spend hours reading and pondering the words of Isaiah. This experience forced me to rely upon the Lord in my teaching so that I could have guidance in what I should teach. I am currently teaching a class on the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon is one of the great blessings of my life. It gives me guidance and fills my soul with light. Last night I taught a class about great prophets who experienced tremendous trials and burdens, but were still blessed by the Lord. I finished the class with this scripture, which I echo: "Now have we not reason to rejoice? Yea, I say unto you, there never were men that had so great reason to rejoice as we, since the world began: yea, and my joy is carried away, even unto boasting in my God; for he has all power, all wisdom, and all understanding; he comprehendeth all things, and he is a merciful Being, even unto salvation, to those who will repent and believe on his name. "Now if this is boasting, even so will I boast; for this is my life and my light, my joy and my salvation, and my redemption from everlasting wo." Alma 26:35-36
