Hi I'm Rachel Johnson

I've grown up and lived in Utah my whole life. Family is my passion. I love being outdoors. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a college student, trying to make my way through school. I work full time, and the whole time I'm there I'm wishing I was outside doing something fun! I love to camp, hike, swim and really do just about anything outdoors. If I'm stuck indoors karaoke is one of my most favorite things to do. It's so fun to me, to sing my heart out and not care one bit about how horrible I may sound. It's the one activity I can do where, for some reason, all my insecurities just disappear. I love spending any time I can with my family. I have 5 brothers and sisters and a niece and a nephew, both of whom I adore! I consider myself very blessed to have all of my family living so close together. I'm sure it won't always be like this, which is why I cherish all this time I have with my family so much.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. Ever since I can remember I have always gone to church every Sunday and studied the gospel. For a long time I relied on my parents testimony of the gospel. It wasn't until my teen years when I was fully converted to the gospel for myself and I had my own testimony of the Book of Mormon and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I have always had a strong sense of right and wrong. I would always try to do right things because I always had a strong desire to do what was right. Because of this it was very easy for me to live the teachings of the gospel. In my teen years however I realized that yes, I was living how I was supposed to, but I didn't have my own testimony of the Book of Mormon and the Gospel. So I read the Book of Mormon for myself. When I had finished it I pondered what I had read and knelt down and prayed an audible prayer asking if the things I had just read were true. The Spirit confirmed to me that they were. I know now for myself that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church. I am so thankful for the Gospel in my life. It has been an anchor for me through all of the trials life throws at me. I have met some amazing people through living the gospel and gained some amazing friendships.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through regular church attendance. I take 3 hours out of my Sunday to go to my local church building with other members of the Church to partake of the Sacrament, to learn, and to be uplifted. I also strive to be an example to others. Through my job I am able to meet many different people from many different walks of life. I pray daily that I can be an example to them.
