Hi I'm Rachel Hendertilo

I'm a Mormon so cal girl ... born & raised :)

About Me

So pretty much I just love being busy and having fun! Which is why I love Californiaaaaa so much! Heavenly Father has really blessed me with such an amazing place to live. I love to go to the beach, especially for bonfires! LA has amazing concerts and events. San Diego is beautiful! Going to the mountains and going camping with my friends and family is always a blast. The desert is fun to go four wheeling and blow up fireworks at! The Anaheim Angels are my team and I just love being in their stadium watching them win! Being with my favorite people going out and doing random things at random times is pretty much heaven! I love to travel as well, I have plans to visit every temple in the world! I really want to spend a summer in Europe! I also want to go to Africa and South America and help do some humanitarian work. I love people. And learning more about people in general and individually are a passion of mine. I know Heavenly Father has put everyone on this earth for a reason at this time for a reason, and I want to know that reason! Oh and im also pretty short, but im told that I make up for it with my personality! :)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because...this gospel makes me happy. Its really that simple. When I make what my Savior and Heavenly Father want me to do a priority, I can feel all the difference in my life. I know that this is Jesus Christ's church.

How I live my faith

I always joke that church is my life. My average week back at home would pretty much consist of work, school, institute, singles ward activities, and game/movie nights with my friends. Since making the decision to make living the gospel standards and surrounding myself with people who do the same, a priority in my life, I can feel a huge difference. I've always been taught to keep my standards high, to choose the right, to pray, read my scriptures and go to church and its something that I still do this day. I love the scriptures and the spirit that reading them brings to my life. Praying to my gracious Heavenly Father always brings a feeling of peace to my life. I can really feel His love for me, as he answers my prayers and blesses me everyday. I try to always keep in mind my Savior Jesus Christ and everything He's done for me as I strive to follow his example in serving and loving others. I know from experience that by reading the scriptures, praying, and going to church I am building my foundation in Jesus Christ.
