Hi I'm Racheal

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the third of nine children. I am in my senior year of college. I love to hang out with friends and play outdoors. Anything that gets dirt on my clothes is fun in my eyes. I love to sing! Some say I sing more than I speak. I learned the Ukulele a couple years back and that is such a fun thing to get into. I have mainly brothers so I find myself making sound effects with all my actions and being excessively goofy. I love life and I am ready to see what it brings.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a family that taught me this gospel but did not always live it themselves. It was interesting that as I was struggling with things while growing up I consistantly found peace when reading the Book of Mormon or when attending church. Regardless of how any one else was living their lives, I knew that I wanted to live for something greater. I wanted to take the time that I have been given and live it to the fullest capacity. I often see people not seeking for something greater. Not seeking for what is really true, and I knew that if I wanted to be my best self then I would have to find truth and live it. That is what I did. I am a Mormon because I wanted to know if it was true and I got an answer that it was. I am a Mormon because I want to be happy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving as a missionary. It is unfair for me to know so much joy and not share it with everyone and anyone I can.

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Racheal
I LOVE the Bible. It's definitely considered scripture. We believe that God wouldn't stop talking to his children which is why we also have the Book of Mormon, The Doctrine and Covenants, and The Pearl of Great Price. We are encouraged to know all scripture that has been given to us and that includes the Bible. Show more Show less
