Hi I'm Rachel

I'm a student. I love to play tennis, read, and travel. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently studying English and Communications. I absolutely love learning and I hope to continue my education throughout my life. But besides school, I love tennis. Playing, teaching or watching, it doesn't matter. Tennis is the greatest sport out there. I also enjoy spending time with my family. My sisters are my best friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the LDS faith, but I still had to find out for myself that this Gospel is the true Gospel of our Savior ,Jesus Christ. When I was a teenager I realized that even though I thought that the Church was true, I really didn't know for myself. It took a lot of patience, prayer, and faith, but I soon came to the point in my life where I had no doubt that nothing else could make me happier than this Gospel. The teachings of this Church lead to true and eternal happiness. The Gospel provides a foundation of strength and hope that I have found nowhere else in this increasingly crazy world.

How I live my faith

I attend church every Sunday, and religious courses during the week. These hours spent in church or classes that help me to learn and study more about this Gospel. As I come to better understand the scriptures, and as I discuss the principles of the Gospel with others of my faith, I realize my many blessings, I understand my purpose in life. I also look for opportunities to serve in my community. Sometime I visit the local nursing home on weekends, other times I volunteered to take Sudanese refugees to the local zoo. These opportunities to serve are extremely spiritually strengthening, and they teach me how to love others and to love God.

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

Mormon women are probably not too different than most of the women you know. We strive to be virtuous, to be morally clean. We believe that we have divine qualities to allow us to nurture and help others around us. Mormons most definitely believe in the equality of men and women. Women in The LDS faith are highly respected and deeply loved. Show more Show less
