Hi I'm Rachel Wyss

About Me

I was born in Salt Lake City, Utah I am 20 years old and a college student Volleyball is my passion I love to play the piano, be outside, hike, and be with family and friends I am currently serving a full-time mission in Dallas, Texas

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon or LDS (Latter-Day Saint) has always been an easy choice for me. I have seen people in my life who struggle because they don't have the truth and light in their life. But I know it is never too late for them to come unto Christ. I strive to always be an active member of the Church because I know how much happiness comes with it. We have a loving Heavenly Father and His son (and our brother) Jesus Christ who died for us through His atonement. As He was going through this, He felt every pain, sorrow, sin, and unhappiness we have and will ever feel. He is the only one who truly knows what we are going through. Being a member of this Church gives me all the tools that I need in order to stay close to my Savior and be able to live with Him and my Heavenly Father again.

How I live my faith

I was born and raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and I am so grateful. I have been extremely blessed with a rather simple life full of amazing people. Without the Church, I honestly don't know where I would be right now, what road I would have taken, and what I would be doing. Because I have grown up being actively involved with the Church, I never really doubted that it wasn't true. However, I soon learned that I needed to know completely that this is the true Church on the Earth today, I couldn't just go off of my half-hearted trust anymore. Once I sincerely prayed and asked to know if this was true, I got a confirmation from my Heavenly Father. I know with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true and that my Savior, Jesus Christ lives. I try to live like Christ would.
