Hi I'm Raelee

I'm a student. I'm a baker. I'm a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Raelee and I love being around people! I am currently a freshman in college and am studying to become a nurse. But before i finish my schooling, i will be serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for 18 months. I will be serving my 18 months to the Lord in Sao Paulo Brazil! I am beyond ecstatic to be among the people of Brazil and teach them about what I love so dearly, the Gospel and the blessings that we can receive by living the Gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I have gained a Testimony of the Book of Mormon and the teachings that are in it. I know that they are true and i cannot deny these things. I know that there is a Prophet on the Earth right now that has been called of God, and he speaks daily with or Father in Heaven to know what we need to hear, for any words from the Prophet, are words from God. I know that Joseph Smith was called of God to bring the fullness of the Gospel in this dispensation. I have a Testimony of my Savior. I know that he sacrificed himself for me, so that i could one day return to live with him and our Father, for without this sacrifice, we would not be able to return to live with our family after this life. I have a testimony of eternal families. I currently do not the blessing of being sealed to my parents, but I know that one day i will be Sealed in the Temple to my Husband and as long as we stay faithful to our covenants, we will be able to be with our families forever. I know that this is the true church on the earth, and it is the only thing that brings pure joy and happiness into my life. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I have struggled in the past with saying my prayers twice a day and really studying my scriptures daily. But with the help of the Lord, i am able to show my dedication and faith by conversing with my Father in Heaven regularly, and also by studying and pondering the scriptures and words of Prophets. I am able to be a better person daily because i grow closer to my Savior and Heavenly Father through these acts. Faith requires action upon a belief, and I am showing my faith also by choosing and preparing to serve a mission!
