Hi I'm Rachel

I grew up in Arizona. I'm a wife and mother of three. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of twins and a newborn baby. I do oil painting and other types of artistic stuff with my spare time. I love decorating my home and making it feel welcoming. I just graduated with a BS in General Engineering and would love to teach engineering someday when my kids are grown. For now I love staying at home with them.

Why I am a Mormon

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints means a lot to me in my life. Christ brings me hope and comfort through hard times. I know that he is my Savior. He has provided me with so many blessings that help me grow closer to him like the scriptures, the temple, my family, my friends and opportunities to help others. Follow Christ has made all the difference in my life.

How I live my faith

I get to teach the two to three year olds. I get to teach them simple short lessons on topics like "Heavenly Father and Jesus Loves Me" or "The Holy Ghost Helps Me". They have snack time, singing time, coloring time, play time, etc. They are such special little people. They are so cute! I love the light in their little faces! I also get to be over activities that are held twice a month for girls eight to eleven years old. We make cookies, play games, do crafts, and teach them things. I just started this calling about a month ago so I don't really have a lot of experiences to share here. The girls I am over are very energetic and enthusiastic. I really love doing this so far. The last thing I can think of is that me and a friend of mine visit another lady in our church each month. We spend about thirty minutes to an hour just chatting and sharing a spiritual message with her. We make sure that she is doing well and help her in anyway we can. She is a wonderful sister who is getting married soon so has been busy getting wedding plans together. I enjoy getting to spend time with her and my companion.

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

A husband and wife can be together forever. It doesn't have to be until death do us part. I know that I will be with my husband forever. And that our family can be a forever family. Show more Show less

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Our prophet today is Thomas S. Monson. I know that he receives revelation from God that guides the whole church. I love him for his kindness and his concern for each and every one of us. Show more Show less
