Hi I'm Rachel

I grew up in Salt Lake City. I am a professional artist and a hardcore nerd. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I've lived in Utah all my life and am currently studying Illustration in college. I love to wake surf, play lacrosse, soccer and rock climb. Along with adventuring and getting lost in weird places, I am a huge book and movie nerd and a hardcore whovian. Recently I have been called to the Puerto Rico, San Juan mission, so thats where I'll be serving the Lord for a year and a half!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church, but that doesn't mean that I haven't developed my own testimony. Over the years I have had many experiences that have created and solidified my testimony. I have studied other religions over the years, and I always keep coming back to this one. It is the only one that makes complete sense and feels right to me. It explains the whole plan for us, where we came from, how we should live, and what is going to happen to us after we die. Its an amazing blessing to already be apart of this gospel, and now I just want to help other people come to it too. I know the Book of Mormon is true and I know of the power of prayer. I know that we have a Father in Heaven who loves us, and who desperately wants us to return to him someday.

How I live my faith

I have been called on an LDS mission to San Juan, Puerto Rico for the next year and a half. This pretty much means that I am going to be teaching the Puerto Rican people about my faith and or helping them out in whatever way I can. I am ridiculously excited! Previously I have been a youth leader, planning activities and caring for the girls in my neighborhood. In college, I have also been a Compassionate Service Leader. So pretty much someone who bakes cookies and writes cards to make people feel better, so a home away from home mom. I love serving people and getting any chance I can to make someone's day brighter!
