Hi I'm Lacey Rasmussen

I grew up in a small town in Heber Utah. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town in Utah. I was born and raised a active member of the LDS church. During most of my high school and college experience I worked in the local grocery store, saving money for things like a car, school, and a mission. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, going to the temple, and singing! Even though I'm not the best.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in an LDS family. We went to church weekly, and when I turned 8 I was baptized as a member. I had a very small and childlike testimony up until middle school, and all of high school. When I was in middle school my family went through a rough patch of trials. It was during that time that my testimony started to grow. As a family we went through financial troubles, this helped me exercise my faith in Christ to know that everything would be alright. I learned the importance of paying tithing, and that obedience to the commandments brings forth blessings. Later on in high school, I learned through seminary and my own personal experiences and trials, the love Christ has for each and every one of us, and His infinite Atonement. It was in high school that I feel like I became a converted member of the church. When I moved out to college, I didn't go to church and live church standards because my parents wanted me to, but because I wanted to! I wanted to constantly be living this gospel faithfully to constantly feel of the love, joy and peace that comes from it! It's such a great blessing and gift in my life! and I am forever grateful for this amazing gospel that the Lord has restored upon this earth!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by currently preparing to serve a mission. In the past I've served as the Laurels President in the Young Women's program. That was an exciting time to be able to get to know the girls of my ward and to have fun with them in all our activities. I've also served as a Sunday School teacher in my YSA ward. When I received this calling it was quite overwhelming because I was fresh into college, a little 18 year old, called to teach the Gospel Doctrine class; a room full of Returned Missionaries. Although I wasn't in the ward for too long, I found such great joy in preparing the lessons. I had the opportunity to team teach with another sister in the ward, and I loved it so much! I learned so much more with combining what we both learned in our individual studies for the lesson, than I did just on my own.
