Hi I'm Rachel

I'm a pre-nursing student. I love to explore and be active . I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm from St. Louis, Missouri I love to play and watch lacrosse and the sports I attend Brigham Young University I am studying to become a nurse I love to explore the beautiful outdoors I will soon be serving a mission in Paraguay.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this is the gospel of Jesus Christ literally on the earth in it's purest form. The gospel has given me everything, a family I know I will be with forever, peace in the hard times and forgiveness so that I can continue to become better. I know that though the gospel I can return to live with my Father in Heaven and that I can feel true joy throughout my life regardless of my circumstances. I have felt a personal witness of the truthfulness of the gospel in my mind and in my heart and I know that everyone can have this witness.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to serve those around me as Christ did! I help to lead and organize the women of my faith in my area by providing them with instructive lessons and uplifting activities. I will soon be serving the beautiful people of Paraguay on an 18 month mission! I want to be like Jesus.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

When I "bear my testimony" it means that I tell whomever I am talking to the things that the Holy Ghost has told me in my mind and in my heart and because of that I know these things to be true. Anyone can gain a testimony if they will prayerfully seek to know if the doctrines of the Mormon church are true. My testimony is that I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that he truly talked with God and was directed by Him to establish this church. I know the Book of Mormon is true and real and that Joseph Smith translated the records of ancient prophets in the Americas. I know there is a true prophet on the earth today, President Thomas S. Monson. Finally, I know that Jesus Christ truly suffered and died for us to pay for our sins and make it possible for us to return to live with out families and Heavenly Father for eternity. I know that because of that Atonement for sin, I am never trapped or lost and I can always come back to Him. Show more Show less
