Hi I'm Rachel McCullough
I have bounced back and forth between Idaho and California for most of my life, as well as an altogher to brief year and a half of serving a mission in Tampa Florida. I am currently an art major at Brigham Young University-Idaho. I love books, movies, or anything that tells a good story.
Why I am a Mormon
I was born into the church, but I stay in the church because It helps me understand and build my personal relationship with Heavenly Father. I have come to understand that I am a beloved Daughter of God and that even when I feel inadequate,scared, or alone he understands exactly what I need and will help me get through trials if I let him. This is what I want everyone else to understand about themselves as well. That you are never alone and never unloved. It doesn't matter who you are or what you have done in the past. Our Father loves us so much that he send our older brother,Jesus Christ, to make a way for all of us to live with him again.Jesus accomplished this through his suffering for our sins in the Garden of Gethsemane and on the Cross.
Why do Mormons go on missions?
We go on Missions so we can share the joy we have in the restored gosple of Jesus Christ. We hope to help people come closer to the savior by applying the princiles of the gosple, which are: Faith, Repentance, Baptism,the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end.
How has your knowledge of the Plan of Happiness changed/benefited your life?
Recently, the Plan of Happiness helped me with the passing of my grandmother. We know where she is and what she is doing. We know where we came from before this life,we know the purpose of this life, and we know were we are going.
How I live my faith
I live my faith by being honest with myself and other. Because I am not perfect, I need to use the atonement of Christ everyday. Our Savior not only cleanses us from sin, but his atonement can also give us the strength to perservere through hard times, and accomplish what we otherwise could not do on our own.
