Hi I'm Rae

I like to write screenplays and TV reviews. I also have a day job in marketing and make soap from bacon grease. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

In pursuit of a career as a professional screenwriter, I've worked as a freelance production assistant on films and TV shows. When I'm not working at my "real" job, I love to follow TV shows and write reviews for websites as well as my own blog. At home, I enjoy healthy cooking, searching for the perfect bread recipe, and making homemade soap. My husband and I enjoy travel, especially visiting temples around the US. And of course, as an aspiring screenwriter, I like to read books and watch movies.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the church when I was nineteen years old. When the missionaries told me about Joseph Smith and the story of the first vision, they asked me to pray to know it was true. I felt as though I already knew it was true, but I trusted Heavenly Father enough to pray about it and receive an answer from the Holy Ghost. After I had gained this testimony, learning about the changes I would need to make to live the Gospel came easy to me. It was as if I had heard all these things before, and was just getting a refresher course. I know that we lived with Heavenly Father before this life, and had enough faith to choose to come to Earth. This life is our chance to prove that we love Heavenly Father enough to follow in the example of His son, Jesus Christ, so that we can return to live with them again.

How I live my faith

In my congregation, also called a ward, I have the most fun and rewarding assignment. I work with the Primary, an organization for children that helps to teach them the Gospel on Sundays and during special activities. I may not know the answers to all of their questions, but I try my best to set a good example for them by loving my neighbors and practicing modesty in my words, dress, and actions. The children in my ward are the smartest, cutest, most friendly kids in the world. To be honest, they have taught me more about the Savior than I could ever hope to teach them.
