Hi I'm Rachel

I grew up in North America. I have a BS in Psychology. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

A little bit about me.....well, I love science fiction. I use to watch Star Trek with my Dad; it was our bonding time, which turned into a weekly family event. I love to camp, read, and do anything with drama. I am recently married and I love it!

Why I am a Mormon

To be honest, it was what my parents taught me. I remember kneeling in the family room praying together as a family and getting up so early to read the scriptures. But, it was during my early teenage years that I decided to continue to follow the Gospel. I know that God answers prayers, so I decided to get a confirmation of my decision. Everything that is good comes from God, and when I prayed, I knew that this was something that I wanted in my life.

How I live my faith

As I mentioned I am recently married and we decided to stay in the same city in which I lived. After two weeks of attending a ward, the Bishop called me to be the Secretary of the Young Women Group. I support the President in the meetings and be a friend and example to the girls. My husband is the Executive Secretary to the Bishop. You may think that these callings will take a lot of our time. They do, but as Isaiah preached, we need to enlarge our stakes of Zion and we do that by serving others to become closer to Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

HA! If you ask my husband this question, he would tell you that I am strong minded! I will tell you that I am determined. I am an Associate Manager of LDS Employment Resource Services. I train and mange 23 part time volunteers to assist people in finding jobs, education, and self employment. So, I work and it is hard work, as you can imagine. But, as soon as I have children, I desire to devote my time to nurturing them. I want to teach them how to make good choices, how to solve problems and take accountability for their actions. I desire them to be dedicated citizens of our country. I know that men and women are equal in importance to all aspects of society and in the sight of God. We both have different roles and inherent talents that are complementary to support society and in spirituality. We cannot achieve our highest potential without each other. Show more Show less
