Hi I'm Rachel

I'm a Texan. I'm a horse lover, an avid reader, a nerd and... I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Texas. When I'm not at school at BYU-Idaho, I live with my family on a beautiful piece of property large enough for our horses, chickens, and a few cows. I love the outdoors and spending time on the farm with my family. I own a horse named Dixie and love to spend as much time as I can with her. I love to read. I'm a big nerd (or maybe just a big fan, as I'm not exactly super knowledgeable about any details) when it comes to things like Doctor Who, Zelda, Star Trek, etc. I love anything to do with music, including singing and dancing. I am working on my bachelors' degree in Marriage and Family Studies, I have about one year left. I want to build a career as an event planner for a company.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and love how much I can still learn about the gospel. I am constantly blessed by my Heavenly Father when I try to follow His commandments and be more like him. As I learn more about the gospel I become closer to my family here on Earth as well as my Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

I served a mission in the Idaho Pocatello Mission, and learned so much while serving the Lord to the best of my ability. I try to be diligent in my studies and my desire to share the gospel with everyone. This gospel has blessed me so much in my life I hope to share it with everyone who will hear. I try every day to live so that I can have His Spirit with me always, because I know that is the only way to truly know of the truth of the Gospel.
