Hi I'm Rachel Jarvis

I'm a small town living kind of girl! I love small towns,I love to laugh, to be with people I love and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in a small town in Arizona. I am the 2nd of three children and the only girl. I love my brothers more than anything. I can honestly say that they are 2 of my best friends and my life would never be the same without them. No relationship is like ours (or so I'm convinced). I've been lucky enough to have been raised in the church my whole life, and my testimony grows each year as I become closer to our Lord and Savior. I'm currently working in the dental field and working towards my associate's degree of science. Family is everything to me and I know I've been blessed to have the family that I do! My whole life has been about creating strong family bonds and that's something I hope to continue with in my life when the time comes to start my own family. Without the love and support of my family I'd be nowhere good :)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this Gospel brings such happiness to my life. Through this church I've learned that I personally can get through any trial or hardship I've had and will have. It brings my family closer, and through this church and the Gospel I know I will be with my family now and my future family forever. I know that this church is true and that if we allow the teachings and principles of the Gospel take place in our lives, we can all have everlasting happiness and joy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following Jesus Christ's example. I am not perfect, but through the atonement of Jesus Christ I know I can be. I also read my scriptures and pray daily. I try to always have a prayer in my heart. Like I said I know I am not perfect, but I try to keep the commandments and live the Gospel so I can always have the spirit with me. I always remind myself that the atonement of Jesus Christ is for everyone and no matter how bad you think you've messed up or how much you think the Lord doesn't care, He will always be there to help, you just have to ask.
