Hi I'm Rachael

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am about to graduate from college with a Bachelor's in Exercise Physiology, my two favorite sports in the whole world are Ultimate Frisbee and wake boarding. I love country music - even the twangy stuff! I go country dancing on a weekly basis and have the time of my life. I love spending time with my family, all my siblings are grown up and married and so I jump at any chance I get to spend time with them. Also, my parents are possibly the most intelligent people in the whole world.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I know it's true. I have a firm testimony of my Savior and my Heavenly Father and their love for me. I still have trials and hard times, some times I bring them on my self by not living as strictly obedient as I should, and other times they come as a refining agent to help me become a better person, but I live in the comfort of knowing that Heavenly Father has promised that these will all work together for my good.

How I live my faith

The main way I live my faith is honestly just by being me. The faith I have is a part of my everyday actions, it dictates the way I dress, the way I talk, the places I go and don't go, the things I do, the organizations I choose to be affiliated with. My faith is literally a part of me. Other ways I live my faith include attending church every Sunday, keeping the sabbath day holy, contributing to Sunday school classes and loving the people around me. I am not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but I am working really hard to be the very best I can. I am trying to live a life of high quality, one that I know my Savior would be proud of.

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

I have the amazing opportunity to know that my marriage to my wonderful husband has the ability to last far beyond this mortal life. Not only that, but also all of my ancestors and all of my posterity have the same opportunity. When I cross to the other side I know that there are loved ones who will be waiting to encircle me in their arms of love. What a wonderful heaven that will be. The important thing for me to remember is that in order to attain that blessing I must always observe the covenants I have made (such as fidelity in my marriage and serving those around me) so that I can be found spotless at the judgement bar of God.
