Hi I'm Rachel

I'm a tennis player. I'm a BYU-Hawaii student. I'm a missionary in the California, Roseville Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love tennis and running. I play the piano and ukulele. I attend school at BYU-Hawaii and am studying exercise science.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I was raised in this faith, I still wanted to find out for myself if the things that I had been taught were true. I prayed so hard and asked God if the Book of Mormon is a true book, and I felt so at peace after that. The more I read the Book of Mormon, the more I know that it is a true book. I cannot deny the feelings of peace, comfort, and guidance I get when I am reading this book, and when I am keeping the commandments of the Lord. I notice when I live in accordance to the teachings of this church, I am so happy. Yes, bad things will still happen to me, but my attitude about them has changed. I know that God gives me trials to help me grow into His daughter that he wants me to become. I want everyone to feel the joy that I feel when I live this gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to always follow the commandments of God, and repenting when I make mistakes.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Talk to Him! He has not cut off communication with us. He has not left us on this earth alone. Pray to him. He is always listening. Show more Show less
