Hi I'm Rachael

I'm a full time missionary for the one true church on the earth. That's epic. Naturally, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town of dirt roads where all the kids seemed to own off road vehicles. I went to a small grade school and then a huge high school, where I participated in a few sports. My main sport was springboard diving- I was voted the most valuable diver. I love to try new things- I am always switching hobbies. I scuba dive, shoot, run, crossfit, fly planes, do HAM radio, and love to read. My favorite material thing in this world is my blue 1998 Jeep Wrangler. I attended BYU-Hawaii and also a community college in Arizona. Now I am currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on Temple Square. Post-mission, I plan to apply to medical school as well as become a pilot.

Why I am a Mormon

I pray to God on a daily basis and I know that He hears me and answers me. I know that Jesus Christ died so that everyone who is wiling to repent of their sins can be saved. Ultimately, I know that this is the gospel of Jesus Christ restored here on the earth again. God called Joseph Smith to be the first latter-day prophet and to restore His gospel. I know all of this because I know that the Book of Mormon is true, as I have read it for myself and received my own personal witness of it.

How I live my faith

I try to be someone that God can count on to help other people. That means living worthy to have the Holy Spirit with me at all times and paying attention to what God is trying to tell me.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

As a missionary, I tell people daily how to know if Mormonism is true. It all comes down to asking God. When you can see that it is good and you have a sincere desire to know and act on the truth, God will put a special feeling in your heart and you will know for yourself that the church is true. I feel this daily- the Holy Spirit bears witness to me that this truly is the same church Christ established when He lived here on the earth. Show more Show less
