Hi I'm Rachel

I grew up in in California and I love the sun! I love being outdoors as long as it is nice and warm. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Hi, I'm Rachel and I love BYU! I am a junior studying nursing and I could not have chosen a more wonderful major. I love all of the things I learn, the people I am surrounded by and most of all the opportunity I have to serve others with the new knowledge and skills I am learning.

Why I am a Mormon

The Gospel of Jesus Christ has been an indescribable blessing in my life. If I had to narrow down "why I am a Mormon" I would say because it offers me a life of peace and joy. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me and set up a plan of happiness available to each of us. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and atoned for the sins of the world. His mercy allows me to come unto Him and be made clean. He offers me hope that one day I can return home to my Father in Heaven with my family and live with them forever in the eternities. I am so happy to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

How I live my faith

Being at BYU I have so many opportunities to participate in my faith. I am able to take religion classes, attend devotionals and be surrounded by wonderful students who have many of the same future goals as me. I love going to church with many other young single adults who are all striving to do their best and figure out this game of life.
