Hi I'm Rachael

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Mother of four children. Thirty years old. Been married to an active LDS man whom I am madly in love with for almost nine years. And I consider that quite an accomplishment :) I enjoy many things...too many to list. But first and foremost, I think of myself as a loving daughter of God. I love people for who they are~and marvel at everyone's unique views and way of being. My life is wonderful because of the Gospel of Jesus Christ - I've worked hard and overcome much to get where I am. I love my Savior, and know without Him I'd be lost and unhappy. I know He lives and that He is the key to all healing and life.

Why I am a Mormon

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the ONLY true and living (meaning, Christ is the active head of this organization) Church on the earth. Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God. The Book of Mormon and Bible are true! I have had many great experiences that have lifted my spirit and filled my heart with joy and peace through going forward in faith in these things. My witnesses have come after the trial of my faith. There is nothing better out there! I have seen miracles, had tastes of heaven and visions that I cannot deny. This life is so short!

How I live my faith

I attend Church each week, hold family night with my husband and children each Monday night, have family scripture study nightly, and family prayer twice a day. Though we are not perfectly consistent all the time, we do our best to give our children a good foundation that will hopefully allow them a good dose of what following the teachings of our Church is like so that later in life, they will be able to choose honestly either the way of the world, or God's way. We want to do our best to hand down all the rich and good things we've enjoyed in our own lives. I faithfully attend Church each week, and activities I can. I attend the Temple as often as possible. And although I generally do my best to do what is right, and to serve God and His children, I have never considered myself as above average or better in any way than anyone else. One of my gifts is to see straight through to people's souls, no matter where they're at in life. I only desire for everyone to be as happy and at peace with their lives and their existence as I've come to be through obedience to the laws and ordinances of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I care deeply for everyone's eternal well-being. I want mostly to be a reminder to the world of Jesus Christ's love and mercy.
