Hi I'm Rachel Birmingham

I'm from Herriman, Utah and am a Dance major at BYU-Idaho. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My favorite things in the world are my family, the gospel, dancing, sun rises, and of course amazing food. I have lived in Utah almost all my life and would never want to leave. I have two sisters and a brother and a large extended family that make me love the holidays. I love to read, paint/draw, dance, sing, garden, go out with friends, and pull pranks on my siblings. I also really enjoy trying new things and traveling to different places. I've been going to school at BYU-I for two years and absolutely love it! I decided to go on a mission and will soon be heading to Wellington, New Zealand for a year and a half!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I don't believe in coincidences and have found that there is someone out there who cares about my eternal well being. It's comforting to know that there is a master plan that no one can change, no matter how evil or powerful. I love the knowledge that I don't ever go through things alone and when I mess up I can be clean again. I also think it's amazing that we were sent here with others, like family or acquaintances, that have similar circumstances that can help us grow as individuals and succeed in life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to make the best our of everything I do or everything I strive to accomplish. I try to see from others' point of view and am working on not judging too quickly. I try to serve others with the little things in life because I know we can't all make it alone.
