Hi I'm Rachel

I am a goalkeeper. I dance in the rain. I can quote the entire Nacho Libre movie. And I am a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a high school student who's loving school and my friends. I love sports, specifically cross country, track and soccer... all big running sports. I love playing the cello and piano and when I can get them to do it, singing with my brothers. I once broke my finger playing soccer and it has taken over 8 months to heal.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a wonderful mormon, more formally LDS, family and have been taught its teachings my entire life. It wasn't until a few years ago that I finally gained a testimony of my own of this church and gospel. The change I felt in my life when I realized that I was following Christ and living his teachings was overwhelming. I've learned to appreciate and admire the blessings that I have been given through Him. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has been the biggest blessing in my life and I am so grateful for a family that has taught me what was true and how to live my life with worthy standards so I can be worthy of His blessings.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an active member of my church. I've taken upon myself the responsibility to make sure I participate in all I can and encourage the youth my age to do so as well. I live a life that I can be proud of and not ashamed to show.

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a Mormon is just like being another, ordinary person. We go to school, we have jobs and we have fun with friends and family. These things bring me joy and happiness. Being with my family makes me laugh. As we grow with eachother we learn and strive to live the gospel of Jesus Christ and obey God's commandments. We study our scriptures, have personal prayer and attend our church meetings. Doing this helps us better understand the Lord's plan for us and the happiness we are striving to achieve. Being a Mormon means being me and doing what makes me happy. Show more Show less
