Hi I'm Rachel

I'm a Senior 🎉 at Brigham Young University graduating in 3 weeks & I work at a advertising agency running social advertisements!

About Me

I am a college student studying Advertising at Brigham Young University. Its so fun to be able to be creative in every class and be constantly thinking of ideas to better promote companies. I love singing, acting, dancing, and anything performing. I love being able to communicate through music and share with others through song. I also really enjoy sports, especially soccer. I have played soccer since I was 6 and I absolutely love the game. I have also found a love for advertising and I love being part of the communication department. I served as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Maryland, and I absolutely LOVED it!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that this is Christs restored church. I know that this church follows the same organization that existed when christ was on the earth. I'm a member of this church and continue to follow this gospel because I have read the Book Of Mormon and know that the teaching of the book are inspired and from God. This church brings me so much happiness and more joy than I can put into words. I know that its true with all of my heart and I know that the prophets and apostles are called of God and have the keys and ordinances of the priesthood that will bring us back to our Father in Heaven Someday. I know that our families can be together forever! Death is not the end, there is ALWAYS hope for repentance and forgiveness, and I know with all of my heart that Jesus Christ is real, He loves us, He knows our personal pains, and He wants us to succeed.

How I live my faith

One of my favorite ways i've lived my faith was by serving as a missionary. When I first started considering a mission it was something that I thought might be good, but I knew would be hard. They say it's the best time of your life, but I've since found that it has also been the absolute best thing for my life. I've learned so much more about myself, about my Heavenly Father, and about His plan for us. He is truly in every single detail of our lives and wants us to succeed.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Rachel
We believe that the family is central to the creators plan for the eternal destiny of his children. Family is the most important unit, and we believe that our family relationships will last forever and not only in this life. We believe that families can be together forever and that even after death, our relationships with those who we love will not end. Through the atonement of Jesus Christ and the temple ordinances, what "we seal on earth will be sealed in Heaven" Matthew 16 19. The sealing power that is found in the temple can make these eternal family relationships possible. Show more Show less
