Hi I'm Rachel Rasmussen

I grew up in West Point Utah. I have gotten my Associates Degree from Weber State University. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old. I love to be with my family and friends. My hobbies include: swimming, sewing, and bowling. I love playing with my little nieces, they are the cutest little girls in the world! I never thought of serving a mission until junior year of high school. I have graduated with an Associates Degree and am ready to serve an LDS mission!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know the gospel is true. I love it so much. There have been times in my life where I have felt so alone and left out, and the one thing I could always count on was the gospel. I knew I always could pray to my Heavenly Father and he would comfort me. I also know that he loves me for who I am. I never will have to change like the world wants me to do, because I am good enough to my Father. I have been in the gospel all my life, but I have been converted since I was a teenager. I love this gospel and wish to share it to anyone that is willing listen.

How I live my faith

Right now my calling is in the activities committee in my singles ward, but previous I was in the young women's (16-18 ages) presidencies. I love serving with the youth. I can connect really well with teenagers, and I love talking to them. I hope to be able to help many more youth as I get older. I also love to share the gospel with people I go to school with, and most important even if they don't want to listen to what I have to say, I like to be their friend.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Rachel Rasmussen
One of the ways I can tell and know their is God is by the simplest ways. For example, look at your hand. In your hand you have many nerves, veins, bones, skin and other parts of your hand. Just by looking at your hand and by knowing what the hand can do, how can you imagine it was just made by consequence? How could this hand that can reach, pull, and hold do so much. And how could it come to be so helpful without having someone divine make it for me? Thats how I know there is a God. You can look at anything in this world, the nature, our brains, others, literally anything and know that God had a hand in making it. And if he made it, he has to be real. Show more Show less
