Hi I'm Rachel

I run, I teach, I'm a computer geek. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a middle school teacher, fresh out of college. I teach kids how to use technology to solve everyday problems. I love graphic design, running, and cooking. I love being creative and making things with my hands-- whether that be making my own recipes, sewing up a storm, or decorating the house. I also enjoy being outdoors, feeling the Spirit and celebrating the glory of God through his beautiful creations.

Why I am a Mormon

My family has been in the church for generations. I was baptized and confirmed a member of the church at the age of eight. My decision to remain faithful and strong in the church comes from the strong belief that it really is true. I need it in my life. I need to have the guidance of Holy Ghost in my daily life, I need to feel the love of my Savior. I need to live righteously so that I can return to my Father in Heaven. I have read the Book of Mormon many times. I have prayed. In my heart, I know that the gospel is good and true. Living it makes me happy.

How I live my faith

I teach Sunday School, which is really just a big peer-to-peer discussion about the scriptures and how they hold personal meaning in our daily lives. We learn so much from each other! 

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

I am a Mormon woman. I am married to a loving husband who respects me, listens to me, and stands by my side as an equal. I have a job that I love though it requires that I take on unexpected roles of woodworker, metalworker, and computer guru. I am excited for the time to come when I will grow and nurture a family. What can I say, I chase my dreams! Mormons do believe in the equality of men and women. We each have our important, unique roles-- but we are equal, and complete together.  Show more Show less
