Hi I'm Rachel

I was born and raised in the Salt Lake Valley. I am serving as a missionary in Arkansas Little Rock Mission.

About Me

I am currently going on a mission to Arkansas, Little Rock. I love to sing. I know ASL (American Sign Language). I feel I can express myself better through ASL. I enjoy meeting new people and learning their life story. I love life, and embrace the moments. I also enjoy doing indexing and Family History. There is lots of power in the family.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up as a Mormon. My parents are Mormon. My grandparents are Mormon. My great-grandparents are Mormon. It keeps going and going. They are a living testimony to me, but I have a testimony of my own. I am a Mormon because I know it is true. I know it is true because the Holy Ghost has born witness to me of the truth. No one has forced me to be a part of The Church of Jesus Christ. I want to be a part of The Church of Jesus Christ. I believe it because I feel good. I am happy when I live the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Church allows me to stay true to my testimony and live the teachings of Jesus. Because I am a Mormon, I know who I am. I am a daughter of God, a Heavenly Father. He loves me infinitely, and I love him. I will defend the truth because it is truth. I am a Mormon because it make me eternally happy.

How I live my faith

Every week, I attend 3 hours of church. I feel so uplifted after I go to church. I enjoy going to church because I feel the spirit. I know truth is taught in church. I also enjoy going to institute, a religion class. In institute, I learn more about Christ and His gospel. It is like church, but during the week in a casual setting. Every morning and night, I kneel to pray to God. I thank him for my many blessings and helping me through my difficulties. Also, I ask for blessings and ask the questions of my heart. I feel I can tell and ask God anything because he knows me. Everyday, I read my scriptures because it brings the spirit into my life and shows my love for God. I build my testimony by praying and reading my scriptures daily. I love the Gospel. I want to share the happiness the Gospel brings into my life by sharing it with other which is why I decided and I am serving a mission.

Who are the Mormons?

Mormons are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The term "Mormon" is a nickname because we believe in The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon is comparable to the Bible in the sense that it contains the fullness of the gospel. Show more Show less
