Hi I'm Rachel

I'm from Arizona but I am currently serving as a missionary in Cleveland, Ohio. "Cleveland baby!"

About Me

I am a college student currently working towards becoming a dental hygienist. I have recently received my mission call and will be serving in Cleveland, Ohio, reporting June 10th. I love sports and especially love to play beach volleyball and basketball. Music is a big part of my life and it has been instrumental in building my testimony.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it brings me happiness I have not been able to find anywhere else. I've tried to seek joy from the things the world has to offer and I've found it may bring temporary pleasure, but nothing compared to the perfect love and happiness I feel from this church. Being a Mormon has taught me to put others before myself and love them as Jesus and our Heavenly Father do. The first and great commandment is to love God. The second is to love thy fellow man. I've found that when I follow these two principles taught to me by this gospel, I am my happiest self. I in turn am able to help others. Being a Mormon has taught me the truth that I have the potential to be with my family for eternity and that I'll see them again after this life. It has taught me that even when I think I've hit my lowest point, my Savior is always there with his hand outstretched, waiting to pick me up. I know that I will never be alone and that I am a child of the almighty God. With these few simple truths, life has been much more meaningful and rewarding as I strive to do those things that would make my Father in Heaven proud. He gave me my life, now I've got to make it count.

How I live my faith

I have the opportunity to be a part of the activities committee in my singles ward. In this calling I get to prepare treats for the ward to enjoy every third Sunday while they mingle and meet new people. I am a very social person so I enjoy helping people feel included and valued at our get-togethers.
