Hi I'm Rachel!

I grew up in a military family. I am starting college. I love to sing and spend time with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of 3 children I have 2 brothers who I am very close to. I am an International Studies major hoping to go into Humanitarian work. I have moved a lot with my family. I've lived in Germany and lots of places in the US. I also hope to continue traveling throughout my life. I speak fluent German. I love to sing that is my favorite way to express the way I feel about any subject. I love life and I love to help others love life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and because of this many of my friends think I was brain washed into believing into the gosple but that is absolutely not true. I love the gosple because I am able to question it and wonder if it is true or if what I am doing is right. I have done this and I have felt in my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saits is the true church and that it was restored on this earth by Joseph Smith who was a prophet of God.

How I live my faith

Faith is something that has to be a part of every facet of your existence. If you have true faith in God and what he teaches, you should be able to see that in the way you talk, the way you treat people and the things that you accept in your life. I strive to live a life that God would be proud of. I do not just talk about it either. I live it. I try to comfort those that morn and serve those who suffer. I try and remember what Christ did and I try to implement that in my life.

What is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' attitude regarding homosexuality and same sex marriage?

In the Church we believe that marrige is between a man and a woman and that if a person acts on homosexual urges it is a sin. Inspite of us believing that homosexuality is a sin we think that we should love all of Gods childeren and we should not judge a person or condemn them. You can love the sinner and hate the sin. No one deserves to be degraded or bullied even if you dont agree with what they are doing. We are all childeren of God. Show more Show less
