Hi I'm Rachel

I love taking pictures, I love being with my family, I love to sew and I love being a Mormon.

About Me

My parents divorced when I was five years old. Which was hard on me, and my two older brothers. I was raised in Oregon for most of my life, which made me learn to appreciate nature. I love taking pictures of anything and everything. I am a student at Brigham Young University-Idaho, with a major in Health Science. I hope to become a physician's assistant or a doctor, I just haven't figured it out yet!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know it is right. I know that it is where I am supposed to be and I know that it is the truth. In high school, I had headaches that were unbearable. I didn't go to school, and really, I didn't do very much of anything. I would just go to church, doctors appointments, and occasionally the grocery store. I prayed to God to take away my headaches or help it be a little less pain. I felt like no one understood the pain I was in, nothing helped, no one helped. I felt hopeless and alone. But, one day I realized that I wasn't alone, Jesus Christ knew me and the pain that I was going through.

How I live my faith

I am currently on a mission to the Phillippines Naga Mission and will be there until September 2014.
