Hi I'm Rachel Evans-Bottoms

I am a born and raised Oklahoman and proud of it! I love being a homemaker! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love to bake! I am now serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ ot Latter-day Saints in the Washington Federal Way Mission! I love it! I love playing with kids! I absolutely love spending time with my family because they are my rock! I could not do anything without them! No matter how busy I am, I always try to look for the good in people and to thank my Father in Heaven and his Son for all the things that I have been blessed with! I even thank him for the trials I go through because without those tough times and my family then I would not be where I am today! I am very involved in school and church activities. I use to watch triplets once a week. I love serving the Lord and His children. Being a missionary is the best thing ever!

Why I am a Mormon

Everything just makes sense! There is not a doubt in my mind that I know this church is true! The gospel is true and the blessings that come from living righteously are true! I know that if it was not for my mom and grandma that I would not be where I am today!! They have been through everything with me and then some! I had some very trying times as an early teen into becoming a teenager! I have always been able to count on my mom and grandma and sister to help bring me through the storm when I didn't think I could! I also leaned on my Heavenly Father and his Son, Jesus Christ, because without their guidance then I would not have been able to overcome the trials and gain the strength I did! I am a Mormon because this is the true church and if I ever have a question about anything, I know that I can call upon the Lord and read my scriptures to find the answer! Listen to that still small voice and he will make sure to guide you back home when you think you are not sure where to go! Never have fear, the Lord is with you!

How I live my faith

I have been involved in many school and church activities. I love to be a part of something all the time no matter what it is. I love being behind the scenes and watch things come together because that is when the magic happens! I have been a part of many leadership camps and being the leader in those to help teach younger students how to run a more smooth leadership program is awesome! I love to be around the youth in my church and the young single adults because we have so many good ideas and things that we want to do to help make things for the better in this crazy world! I also love to be around the older adults because they have a wonderful history that needs to be heard so that we, young people, don't make the same mistakes that they did. I live my faith through example because I know so many are looking at me and I like that because it keeps me on my toes and I know if I am right with the Lord then things will work out! Everything happens for a reason! I am blessed to be a part of this church and share the gospel with others!
