Hi I'm Rachel

I'm a wife, mom, middle school teacher and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Air Force brat and wife. My husband and I stay busy raising our six unique and active children, the youngest born with Down Syndrome. We love filling our home with lots of music, excellent literature, games, and laughter. I have an associates degree in sign language interpreting and then went back to school many years later to earn my teaching degree and license. I teach reading to middle school students and have a great passion for education. I love Mexican food, being crafty, libraries, and watching musicals and Jane Austen movies.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have sincerely asked God for answers and he has given them to me. I have a feeling of peace in knowing where I was before this life, why I am here, and where I am going. I have prayed and asked God if the Book of Mormon is true and received a confirming answer. The teachings of Jesus Christ give me purpose, direction, happiness, and peace.

How I live my faith

Living my faith is part of my everyday lifestyle. I pray and read scriptures and try to serve my neighbors. I pray to see others the way God sees them, as His children. My husband and I teach our children to follow the commandments and love others. Worshipping with our local congregation on Sunday is a joy as we strengthen one another and learn to be better followers of Christ.
