Hi I'm Rachel

I love music, singing, art, and being outdoors. I am passionate about helping other people, and I love to travel. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi I am Rachel! I am adventurous, and I love to try new things. I have 2 older sisters and 1 younger brother. I absolutely love music. I have been singing ever since I was a little girl, and me and my brother love to jam together. Not only do I love music, but I also love art and being outdoors. I love to take walks and look at all of the beautiful things on this earth. I love being happy, and I love to laugh. I am currently heading out to serve a mission for the LDS Church. As a missionary I will spend my time serving others and inviting them to come unto Christ. The most important things in my life are God, my family, and other people. A motto for my life is "Things that matter most must never be at the mercy of things that matter least". I try to spend my time on the things that matter most. And for me that is my religion and helping other people. After a mission I will be going to college to get a degree. I hope to travel the world, see the sights, and serve people.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have found out for myself that God lives and loves me. We are all His children. At one point in my life I really questioned that. But as I prayed and read the Book of Mormon I found greater peace in my life. I came to know that we are not alone in this journey of life. This gospel gives me a greater perspective on life--a perspective that helps me find hope and happiness. Just as I know that there is more to life, and we can become like God one day, you can know for yourself too.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving in my ward. I have planned activities for girls my age. I also live my faith by serving others and being happy. I believe that God wants us to find joy in life. Each day I try to live with joy. I also live my faith my doing the daily things that help me draw closer to Christ and express gratitude. As I pray and talk to God I find peace and joy. It is through the daily things I do that help me draw closer to Christ that I find the joy that I live my life with.
