Hi I'm Raelene

I was born and raised in Colorado. I love the mountains and outdoors. I'm proud to be a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in Colorado my entire life and I think what I enjoy most is being with my eternal family. They mean everything to me and helped me become who I am today. I enjoy hiking, rock climbing, rafting, spelunking, fishing, camping and more. I'll play all sports no matter if I'm good or not, but my family and life have taught me to live to the fullest. I am currently in school right now studying business and soon leaving to serve a year and a half mission in Brazil! I am always up for going dancing whether it be ballroom, latin, country or hip hop. I love doing all of those types of dancing and have been doing that for a couple years. Dancing is so much apart of my life and brings me great happiness. The two things I love doing is being in the mountains or expressing myself in dance.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because it has brought meaning, joy, and hope into my life. It has helped me understand that I am a child of god, it has helped me realize how special I am to my heavenly father and that we are loved by him, an unconditional love. With this love we can be forgiven for our sins and become whole, we can feel at peace with our heavenly father and ourselves because he loves us so much to forgive us even though we are not perfect. We can always get that guilt wiped away and find happiness and love. I am a mormon because as I study the bible and book of mormon I receive understanding, that what I am reading is the true word of god and it was meant for us so that we could receive an understanding of why we are here on this earth and what we are supposed to do in this life. I am a mormon because I know that I can live with my heavenly father again when I die and that I'll be able to be with my family because I have lived my life in accordance with what my heavenly father wants. I am a mormon because I know what my purpose is here on the earth, how I can become closer to my heavenly father and more. I could honestly go on forever about how blessed I am to be a mormon and why I am a mormon. I know that the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church on the earth and each day I am strengthened by living the teachings of it. I would invite all those to find out for themselves.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith to best of my ability. I live and breath my religion, everything I do I try to center around Christ and what he would do. I am always striving to become better by serving others no matter who that may be. I live my faith by making righteous and good moral decisions each day. I try to be a light like my savior so I can help and light the ways of the people who are lost or fallen and introduce them to the gospel.The gospel creates a happiness in those people's lives and a hope that they can be forgiven and receive eternal joy. I am not perfect but if I can help someone or make someone happier then I will do it.
