Hi I'm Rachel White

I am a medical student out to change the world one kind act at a time. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a daughter, sister, aunt, friend, teacher, university student, volunteer, & most importantly, a daughter of God. I am taking a hiatus from my studies at college to serve Him as a missionary. When I was in high school, my parents divorced. As a result, I became more responsible, more caring, more charitable. I am grateful for hard times, because I know the trials we get in this life can help us become better if we choose to let them. I have a passion. It is serving those around me. Nothing brings me greater joy than making someone's day better! One of my heroes is Mother Theresa, she is so cool. I enjoy a plethora of activities including painting, water sports, exploring, and cooking. I also love to learn! One of my favorite hobbies is researching my ancestors. I love learning about who I came from, because I know that they are a part of me. They did hard things, and that gives me added strength. They helped me become who I am today more than anyone else--because without them, I couldn't exist!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have tried out living what they teach in church, and I'm constantly recognizing how it blesses my life. I also studied, prayed, and received my own witness that this is Christ's restored church once again on the earth. I grew up in a family with strong members of the church, my grandparents are the pioneers and leading examples in my family. Having a strong foundation helps, but I have to choose for myself, everyday, to follow Christ's example.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in the small day to day things, like prayer, scripture study, and service; smiling, holding the door for someone, cleaning dishes, encouraging, serving, and loving those around me. I am also dedicating a year and a half to sharing the love of Heavenly Father and the Savior with others as a full time missionary.
