Hi I'm Rachel

I'm a social worker. I'm a musician. I'm a dilettante. I grew up in Florida and love the ocean.

About Me

I am currently a graduate student studying social work. I love it! I especially love working in the area of women's issues. I have worked on rape crisis teams and in domestic violence shelters. I love learning about the things that affect us as humans, and how we can change ourselves and our surroundings for the better. I love learning about people's struggles and learning to appreciate the richness of their development. I love my family. We're all crazy. But somehow we manage to make things work, even thought it can be hard! I have definitely had the most joy and growth with them. I love playing with my nieces and nephew.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because of the knowledge of a plan that means everything to me. It is something I have tested and found to be true. You can read about it here. http://www.lds.org/bc/content/shared/content/english/pdf/language-materials/36950_eng.pdf?lang=eng I hope you find something new that gives more meaning to your own life. That's what it's all about! I am also a Mormon because of the strength and inspiration I get from the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price. I have found the things my soul ached for here, as well as in the Bible. These books help me understand and apply all scripture more fully into my life. And the only way I know this is because I have taken them into my own life and studied them.

How I live my faith

My faith basically determines everything I do. My faith gives reason and rhythm to life. Without it there wouldn't really be a point. I have a purpose that requires me to learn and grow, and to use that growth after this life. There is a plan that means everything to me. It is something I have tested and found to be true. You can read about it here. http://www.lds.org/bc/content/shared/content/english/pdf/language-materials/36950_eng.pdf?lang=eng I hope you find something new that gives more meaning to your own life. That's what it's all about!
