Hi I'm Rachel Saxton

Well, lets see.... I am a small town girl from Utah. I am an art fanatic, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

There is not much to tell. I grew up in a city, but have always loved the country side. i live in the country now. i love every form of art, but however am only good at the visual form of it. I have a personal soft spot for sculpture and horses. Unfortunately i have not been able to successfully combine the two. I love the open space of outside, and, if given the option, would live the rest of my life as a hermit, in a lonely cabin in the woods with my family. hiking, fishing, running, swimming, all that lovely stuff. but, i also love people, and would probably become too lonely. i have yet to start my own family, but am preparing to teach others by becoming a missionary for the Church.

Why I am a Mormon

i am a Mormon. i have no shame or hesitation in saying so. i have been one all my life, i grew up with it. i did not always believe however. i had my own trials and teaching moments that allowed the Spirit to teach and help me understand what it means to be a Mormon. being a Mormon means more than just going to church for three hours every Sunday. it means becoming the best you can be, becoming exactly like Christ. it means sharing this with everyone around you, and bringing out the best in them. I am a Mormon because of what this teaches.

How I live my faith

The best way to live your faith, is through example, as Christ has taught. just being able to be open and unafraid to share what you know with those around you. to not criticize or judge someone else because they are different. I am currently a ward missionary in my ward, which has been kind of interesting. its been an eye-opener for what i will be experiencing for the next 18 months. The young single adults in my ward have such amazing, and diverse personalities, and its amazing to watch them work. and i get to be apart of it.
