Hi I'm Rachel

I'm a missionary in the Spokane Washington Mission. I love God, and I'm a mormon!

About Me

I am a daughter of God. I know that, and I live by the standards He has set for me. He has given me talents and qualities I need to develop and obtain here. God is good. I absolutely love the earth He has given us. I love hiking, camping, nature walks, etc! I especially love to visit my grandparent's cabin. Long walks through the trees, down to the pond, and over the hills is so peaceful and calming. I enjoy the wind blowing through my hair and singing to music at the top of my lungs. I also love people. Playing with my friends and doing adventurous things is my idea of weekend nights. But I love my individual time. My favorite place on earth is my home. I love my family so much, and I absolutely love spending time with them; watching movies, making vegan dishes, playing games, singing, swimming, or volleyball in our backyard. I play four instruments and sing. I love all sports. Healthy food is the best, but I also enjoy my treats! I am currently serving a full-time mission in Spokane Washington and absolutely LOVE it! The church is more than a church, it is Christ's church on the earth today. It is the way we can obtain eternal happiness, and I want to share that with the whole world.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a Heavenly Father who loves me perfectly. His greatest act of love was giving us a Savior, Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ took upon our sins so we can be completely forgiven as we repent and change. He also knows exactly how I feel at all times. God rejoices when I do what He has asked me to do. I have a great desire to do all He has asked, because I love Him and want to be obedient. Heavenly Father wants us to have direction and light in our lives. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been restored to the earth by a prophet named Joseph Smith. Through the doctrine of the church, I know the commandments and covenants I must make to return and live with my Heavenly Father. They are written in the Bible and the Book of Mormon.This is why I am a Mormon; this is why I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I want to return and live with my Father in Heaven again.

How I live my faith

I enjoy living my faith because it makes me into a person I know my Heavenly Father is pleased with. I'm happy when I do. I know I have trials and make mistakes, but this is why our Savior, Jesus Christ has Atoned for our sins. I can repent and work harder the next day. I live my faith by giving service! I understand that every one is a child of God and therefore should be treated as such! I live my faith by reading my scriptures. I pray. I go to church. I keep the commandments, and I follow the example of Jesus Christ. I live my faith by loving and improving myself every day. I know I can not do it on my own, but with my Father in Heaven and Savior, I can become perfect!
