Hi I'm Rachel

I'm a Mormon. I'm a wife, mother, artist and Christian.

About Me

Hello, I am Rachel. I am recent college grad who studied early childhood education and visual arts. I also have a year and a half year old little girl and a a fantastic Brazilian husband. I love life and thoughroughly enjoy my family, my life and my faith. I think that there is always something to beautiful around us we just need to stop and look for it. I grew up in the St. Louis area and now live in the metro Detroit area where my husband and I recently moved.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon becuase I know that this is the restored gospel. I have asked God for myself and have recieved a witness from Him that Jesus is the Christ, and that this church is run my Him though his prophets today. I have found peace and happiness though life's trials as I try to live the gospel of Jesus Christ. I believe that God cares about us individually, and we can communicate with him through prayer. He has answered my prayers and helped me to know countless times that this is where He wants me to be. This is the true restored Church of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying each day to live as God would have me live. I try to serve others around me, and love them the way that God loves all of us. I have my up days and my down days but I try to do my best. I know that God has a mission for me in my life. I know that He guides me though his Spirit the Holy Ghost. In my congregation I am responsible to help in our women's organization called the Relief Society. We have a watchcare system to make sure every woman is doing ok and has contact with friends. I am resposible in helping make sure that happens every month. It is important that everyone knows they are loved and cared about by others.

What is the Relief Society?

It is a women's organization that helps women to have a conduit for service and friendship. Women meet together and learn about the gospel of Jesus Christ. We learn wonderful principles that will help us to be more self reiant and able to help raise our families in faith. The motto of the relief society is "charity never faileth", and this is clear when you attend a meeting. The women are dedicated to serving God and others though Christlike service.
