Hi I'm Rachel

I'm a hunter and fisher. I grew up in Sutter, California. I'm a blood donor. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to be outdoors. I love fishing, hunting, and camping. I crochet, sew, and I am learning how to knit. I have made a quilt for child protective services. I enjoy making quilts and using my hands for projects. I love being with my family and going new places. I am going to Brigham Young University-Idaho and I am very excited. I am going to college to become a Registered Nurse. I have a mom and dad and one sister. I have helped donate item, such as sweatshirts, fleece hats, and scarfs. I enjoy helping people whenever I possibly can. I will be serving a mission for the church in the Missouri Independence Mission! I am so excited and grateful for that wonderful opportunity.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I was born into a loving family that was already Mormon. My mom was less active and my dad was a convert. Now we are all extremely active in the church. I love being Mormon. It helps me to know that I mean something. I know that everything that the church teaches is true and I am so very grateful I can live the standards. I know that everything that the church teaches is for a reason, even if we do not understand it now. I am always doing my best to live the standards of the church and to help others come to the church.

How I live my faith

I help out my comunity as often as I can. I am always there to help with someones children. I also help move people into their new homes. I love being with the children. I am a part of a church group for people who crochet, knit, and/or sew, this group is called the Daytime Stichers. The Daytime Stichers get together once a month to work on our projects and get to know one another. We have the missionaries over at our house often since my dad is the Ward Mission Leader. We feed them and help them find people to teach the gospel to. I help in church events, like barbeques and activities.

Are Mormons Christians?

Yes, Mormons are Christians. Being Christian means that we believe and follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. We believe and follow Jesus Christ, that is why we are The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Our church is founded on the teachings of Jesus Christ. So, yes being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints does make you a Christian. Show more Show less
