Hi I'm Rachel Miner

I'm a college student. I'm a runner. I love music. I am happy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just finished my first year of college and absolutely loved it. I am working on getting my prerequisites done so that I can apply for the nursing program! I am a long-distance runner. During this past year I have run two half-marathons and I just barely ran my first marathon! I love running because it allows me challenge myself and accomplish hard things. It makes me feel happy and strong. :) I also love to sing and play the guitar as well as the piano! I really enjoy laughing, traveling, being in the outdoors, going on adventures, and accomplishing hard goals that I set for myself.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that by being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints I am a better person and a happier person. The gospel of Jesus Christ gives me perspective, hope, and joy. When I try to follow the example of Jesus Christ, I feel closer to him and my Heavenly Father. When I am closer to them, I never have to feel alone and I feel like anything is possible. I know that this church is true and that it has changed my life.

How I live my faith

This past year I was in a student ward with people my same age. I had the privilege of teaching some of the other girls in church about one Sunday every month during the school year. This was definitely a learning experience for me but helped me to gain more confidence in speaking with and teaching to a larger group. My faith and beliefs were strengthened as I taught others about certain gospel topics. I have also been preparing to serve as a missionary! I cannot wait to share the gospel with others and help them to come unto Christ.
