Hi I'm Rachel

I grew up in Virginia. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a mom of 7 children ranging in age from 6 months to 15 years. I'm a stay at home mom that enjoys reading and cooking.

Why I am a Mormon

I follow the gospel of Christ because it gives me peace and hope in a world where I'm confronted with messages of no hope and no peace. I could not make it through the day without it. I find strength to care for my family. I can do all things through the gospel of Jesus Christ. It helps me cope with the dissappointments of life and gives me the ability to see the light from the darkness.

How I live my faith

I visit three women in my ward monthly to share a gospel message and see how they are doing. Sometimes I play the organ or piano for services on Sunday.

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a member of the church means that no matter where you are in the world, you have friends to worship with that you can call on when you need help. You are never alone in the Gospel. You also have opportunities to serve others and come closer to Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
