Hi I'm Rachel

I grew up in Utah. I'm going to school to become a teacher. I'll serve in the Ohio Cincinnati mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have always loved music. I play the piano and I enjoy singing. I also grew up involved in sports. I have played soccer for many years and have coached for about 4 years. I'm going to school right now to become an elementary teacher. I love kids and I love being able to help kids become the best that they can be. I have been called to serve a mission in the Ohio Cincinnati Mission and I couldn't be more excited!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Church my whole life. However, my testimony I had to build for myself and was something that I strengthened and had to develop. I know that the church is true with every fiber of my being. I have felt the spirit and it has testified to me of the truthfulness of the gospel and everything that I have been taught of the church. I came to know this through my personal study of the scriptures and through my own personal prayers. The gospel is true. God is our loving Heavenly Father. Christ atoned for my sins and the sins of everyone so that we may repent and return to him. The Book of Mormon is a book of scripture. Joseph Smith was a real and true prophet and translated the Book of Mormon. I have learned all of this for myself. My testimony is something that I hold very close to me. It is something that I want everyone to understand and learn for themselves.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by the little things mostly. I hope and pray that I am an example to others through my attitude and my actions. I do the small things, like reading my scriptures, saying my prayer, and by trying to be kind to others to show my faith. I have also been called as a teacher in my singles ward. I was able to teach lessons every few Sundays. It was an amazing opportunity to share my testimony and belief with those I met down at school. I'm also living my faith by choosing to serve a mission. I will be out for 18 months just sharing the gospel and what I love with whoever I meet.
