Hi I'm Rachel

I'm a college student, artist, sister, daughter, aunt, Internee, friend..and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student studying Visual Arts: Photography. I love photography, and learning. I surprise myself sometime at how much of a nerd I can be. I love technology..using a Mac, or camera is second nature to me. When I'm not such a dork I love hanging out with my friends, and family. I love going on road trips, shopping, reading, and doing fun photo shoots.

Why I am a Mormon

Like many member of the church I was born into His Gospel. However, that is not the main reason I am Mormon. Yes, while growing up I might have just gone because my family did, but not anymore. Now that I am old enough I go, learn, and grow because of me. Although my testimony is not always strong, It is always true. The church is always something that is there in my life..something that is solid. Even when I am not always there with my heart and mind, He is. He is there waiting, and we just need to open the door.

How I live my faith

I go to the Young Single Adult ward in my area. My 2 callings are visiting teaching, and a member of the activities committee. As I visit teach I become closer to the girls in my ward. I love meeting, and learning about them. It is great to have such great friends, and be able to share our beliefs, and testimonies every month. In the activities committee I help plan our monthly activities as a ward. These activities bring our ward family closer together. I love being able to meet new people, and see their testimonies grow stronger as we learn, and grow together.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

The question. "Can a husband and wife be together forever?" is one that I wish more people would ask me. Marriage is one of the things that I look forward to the most in life. The aspect of being with someone you love for eternity is something that I love, and am grateful for. I have seen the major difference in marriages in, and outside of the church. I also photograph many weddings that are from other faiths. The part in the ceremony that I always notice is the common phrase.."Till death do us part." Every time I hear this I have a horrible feeling...in the ceremony the religious figure states your beginning, and end together as a couple. Wouldn't you rather have no end? Show more Show less
