Hi I'm Raegan

Running is my life, I love being outside....and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I ran Cross Country and Track (1600m, 800m, 4x800m, and 4x400m) my entire high school career and I came to love my team and the sport. After graduating, the love didn't die for me and I have started to participate in marathons and just run for fun. I have a desire to push myself to achieve more than I believe I can. I love playing the piano and singing, too. I enjoy being outside, hiking, and trying new things. I love my family so much and my amazing friends who I have been blessed to be around. I will be serving a mission in Mexico, starting June 2014. I'm so excited!!!!! When I get home, I plan to get my Bachelor's degree in Nursing.

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed to be born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints...but that's not the reason I've personally chosen to stay active in the Church. I had to ask for myself through prayer and I received an answer from God. It wasn't one big event, but it has happened slowly and over much time and effort. I know this gospel to be true! I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and works in harmony with the Bible. I know that I have a loving Savior, Jesus Christ, who died for me, and you too. His Atonement covers our sins and heartaches, what a marvelous gift! I know I have a gracious Heavenly Father who loves me, wants the best for me, and desires to help me. I know Joseph Smith was a true prophet and called of God to restore the truth to the earth. I know we have a prophet today to lead us. I know the Holy Ghost can testify truth to us if we open our hearts and ask God in prayer. My testimony may be small, but these are things I know to be true with all of my heart and I know I can grow if I seek out the things of the Lord. My testimony helps me hold on when times are hard, and it is super precious to me.

How I live my faith

I always look for opportunities to help others and try to conduct my life in a way that I would like to be remembered. I suppose long story short, I am just learning and growing day by day and sincerely try to be a good person.
