Hi I'm Rachel
I'm a stay at home with two young boys. I love taking care of my boys and watching them grow. It can be hard at times but the regards far outweigh the difficulties. I graduated from Brigham Young University in nursing and work occasionally now that I have children. I have spent most of my time working in an emergency room. My husband works from home and is able to spend a lot of time with our family. My sons hardly go a couple hours without seeing their dad. We are so lucky to get to spend so much time together as a family. I come from a family of 10 children, 8 of which were born in 8 years. Growing up was a bit crazy at time with that many kids, but somehow my mom managed it. My brothers and sisters are now my best friends and I can't imagine my life without them. My mother died when I was 20 years old. I miss her everyday. I especially miss her during important events, like my children's births. But I know that I am sealed to her for eternity and that I can be with her again some day. And I'm sure she is watching me from heaven and helping me along the way. I know she has comforted me when I've really needed it.
Why I am a Mormon
When I was a child I was a member of this church mainly because my parents were. I had a little bit of a testimony and felt the spirit at times, but my testimony wasn't very strong. As I got older, I began to build my own testimony by being receptive to the spirit and by seeking the truth myself. Since that time, I have undeniably felt the spirit witness to me, many times, that this gospel is true.
How I live my faith
My faith is involved in every part of my life. There are the specific church type things I do, like teaching the young children at church each sunday, but they are just a small part of what I do. I speak of Jesus and Heavenly Father all throughout the day in my home. I do this even more now than I used to since I have little children that I am trying to teach and discipline. I try to act as Jesus would want me to by doing service to others, having patience and showing love, among other things.
