Hi I'm Rachel Merritt

Raised in Texas, Part Hawaiian, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving a mission in Colorado. I love watching movies and TV shows. I love shopping, being in the sun, being with my family, sleeping, & taking pictures! But my most favorite thing to do is laugh. :)

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed to have been born in the church, but I still have a conversion story. Growing up the standards I lived by were the standards my parents enforced, the older I got the more I wanted to make my own standards. To scared to go behind my parents back and make my own bad decisions, I was able to watch my friends and see where the choices that they were making, and that I could see myself making one day, got them. I Saw that my friends made decisions that, might bring temporary joy, but they weren't happy. I watched as they got to the point where they were only happy when they were making those bad decisions, that at one time I thought would be fun. Finally I came to the age where I knew I needed to find out if the standards my parents always told me to live by, were the standards that my Heavenly Father Really wanted for me. So I prayed and asked my Heavenly Father if the things my parents taught me were true. I received my answer, and had never been more grateful that I was always to scared, to do the things my parents had always taught to be wrong. The more I learn about the gospel, the stronger the spirit testifies to me of its truths. I know This Church is True, and that through reading the Book of Mormon, and prayer, anyone can come to know of its truths as I did.

How I live my faith

I try my best to Live my Faith in all my actions, and in every aspect of my life. But I am only Human, what I lack Jesus Christ makes up for through the Atonement!
