Hi I'm Rachelle

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a vibrant youth who loves to run, read, ride horses, and play most any sport. I graduated as a nurse about a year ago and I am now serving a full-time mission in the great North American South! I also love animals and dream about going back to school to be a veterinarian or a zoo-keeper : ) I have four awesome brothers and a wonderful mom and dad.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this Church because its teachings are what I know- in my heart- to be true. I have great potential as a literal child of God, as does every other person who's lived or will yet live on this earth. There's so much more to this life than we usually give it credit for; life's not to just simply be endured. Its to be enjoyed! And much of that enjoyment comes from the peace felt through the healing power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. And I have felt that. And I look forward to the future; not just in this life, but in the next. I am a member because it is God's way of preparing His children to come back to Him through His Son, Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

Right now I am living my faith by serving a full-time mission. Every day I have the opportunity to talk to many of God's children about the Gospel of Jesus Christ and God's plan for us. We talk about the relevance of His Gospel in their lives. We also love to invite others to act on their desires to know of the truthfulness of the restored Gospel; which acting always leads the sincere seeker to truth. We talk with everyone, despite religious background or culture. I have had my testimony renewed as I see others gain a testimony for themselves.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

 How do you come to know anyone? By talking to them! If you don't know there is a God and that He not only lives but also loves you and is mindful of you, then you need to do an experiment. Find a private place to pray and talk to Him as you would talk to an earthly father. See what happens! Show more Show less
