Hi I'm Rachel

I grew up in Idaho. I am a musician. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am the second oldest of 5 children. My high school years were spent learning, practicing the piano, golfing, and developing my love for photography. I am attended college in Idaho and was studying music. I am currently serving a mission in the Ohio Cincinnati Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

This gospel brings me happiness. I have grown up a Mormon and have grown to love everything that is being taught. I love the hope in everything that we learn. I am taught about the Plan of Salvation and how we can see our loved ones again after they have passed on. I am taught of repentance and how no matter what decisions we make we are always able to repent and become clean through our Savior Jesus Christ. I have been taught since I was young that we have a Heavenly Father who loves us and cares about us. I love having that knowledge and the constant reminder that what I am learning is true. I love the Book of Mormon and the Bible and their teachings and how the words written have helped me to see what Christ's life was like and how I can pattern my life after His example. I love the Commandments and the fact that they are there to protect us and are another way of showing that our Father in Heaven loves us and is looking out for us. This is the true church of Jesus Christ and I know because I have studied and prayed for myself to gain my own testimony that it is true.

How I live my faith

I love being a part of the LDS church. It provides so many opportunities to serve others and form friendships. I have had the opportunity to teach classes and learn for myself while preparing lessons. I play the organ for our ward and love the opportunity to use my talents to serve others. I am constantly striving to live my faith through the service I do. Our goal in this life is to become more like Christ everyday. I am always working on becoming more like Christ and living my life so that others see him through me. I try and be an example and live a Christlike life. I know there is power in music and I have been able to see how music can really help us feel the love of our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and I am so grateful for that.
