Hi I'm Rachelle

I grew up in Texas, I'm a wife and mother of a beautiful baby boy, I love acting, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I started acting in high school and loved it. Acting is my planned major in college. After one semester at college I had to return home because of depression issues. A year later I returned to school and was married not too long after. My husband and I have been married for a year and a half now and were blessed with a baby boy in May. Other than acting I love to sing, dance, read, and (though it sounds nerdy) do crafts. I'm currently making clocks out of dinner plates.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church and leaned on my parents testimonies until I was about twelve years old. At that time I began to have some personal struggles and decided to actively search to gain my own testimony. Through personal prayer, scripture study, questioning, and testing my testimony grew. It sustains me and brings me joy. It gives me peace and comfort in times of need. It helps me know why I am here on this Earth and what I need to do to be happy. It provides a source of hope and guidance. It is my foundation and that is why I am a Mormon. Nothing else I have encountered has come close to providing so fully all that my testimony provides.

How I live my faith

At church each week my husband and I teach a class of six and seven year olds about the gospel. They are a crazy group of kids but it has been fun and a great learning experience. Before we taught this younger class we taught sixteen to eighteen year olds which was a completely different experience but still positive. Along with teaching our class I do visiting teaching. Together with another sister from the ward we visit two sisters each month. We see how they are doing, if they need anything, and give them a short gospel lesson. It has been great to be able to do visiting teaching because you make close friends not only with the sisters you teach but also with the partner you teach with. Other than those two things I try to volunteer service however I can.
