Hi I'm Rachael.

I am known to the world as Lady Fawkes, passionate mix artiste of a genre called rush progressive rock. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a single gal who has many creative interests, including writing, sketch art, composing music, singing, and arts and crafts. I love my family and I'm very close to my mom and sister, in particular. I would love to be able to see them more often. I'm one of 10 children in a blended family--that's right, stepfamilies exist even amongst Mormons. I have 11 nephews and 6 nieces and I love every single one of them!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon for many reasons. To start with, I was raised in the church. My parents divorced and it was quite a difficult time for me. I had to find out many things for myself. When I went to college, I discovered just how much I needed the church in my life. I'm a Mormon because I found out that not living as a Mormon is far more difficult than living as a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by praying and trying to read the scriptures daily. I try and live by gospel standards and principles. While I'm not always successful, I do know that I can wake up and start again afresh the next day.

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Personally, I perform baptisms for the dead because I feel it is only fair to those who have gone on before, who have not yet had the chance to join our faith. If I were in the same position (passed on but not yet given the opportunity to join the gospel) I would hope some willing soul would perform the required ordinances for me. Performing baptisms for the dead also allows many other blessings to be freely poured out from the heavens upon those who perform them. You're not just helping those who have passed on, you're helping yourself, in a way. Little things, such as being able to get to work on time during a busy commute, finding a parking space close to the door at a busy store, or getting a promotion at work after performing baptisms for the dead might be called coincidences, but I believe they can be tender mercies from the Lord.
