Hi I'm Rachel Riley

I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and I am so grateful for how my life is going because of it!

About Me

HI, I'm Rachel! I attend Brigham Young University and I'm studying Exercise & Wellness with a minor in Nutrition, and I plan to go on to graduate school and get a degree in something medical. I am just fascinated by the human body! I grew up in an Air Force family so I've lived around the world, but I consider the gulf coast of Florida my home. I love watching baseball games, cooking, hiking, reading a good book, and spending time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am called a Mormon because I follow Jesus Christ and belive that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. My belief in Jesus Christ and His atonement has brought be so much peace and meaning in this crazy life. I love knowing that I will get to be with my family forever. I am a Mormon because I know that this church is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday by saying prayers, reading my scriptures, dressing modestly, taking care of my physical body, and doing my best to serve others as Christ would. I also attend church on Sundays, practice playing hymns of the piano, and studing the Book of Mormon. This May I will be leaving to serve an 18-month mission in Italy (Milan), teaching Heavenly Father's children this same gospel in Italian! I am so excited to bring the joy that I feel to others so they can feel it too!

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Rachel Riley
Yes! It contains so many wonderful truths about Jesus Christ and how God communicates with His prophets on Earth! We also have the Book of Mormon to clarify doctrine and provide even more words about Christ's teachings. Show more Show less
