Hi I'm Rachel

I grew up in California. I am 19 years old & I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am a beach lover to say the least. I love anything to do with being outdoors. The beach, rivers, and lakes are simply my favorite places to be. I enjoy cheerleading and dancing.

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky to be born into a family who was active in the church and still are. I think it would have been very tough for me to pick this church on my own because of all the the worldly distractions there are with whats defined as cool and acceptable in the world. However, it is so worth it to choose this church. Simply I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ because it makes me happy. I don't see all the rules as restraints but as ways to keep us safe and happy. The times that I am strongest in the church are the times that I am always the happiest.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being a good person. I believe that the most important thing in this life is to love others. Love is what drives us and keeps us happy. I choose to be kind to strangers, classmates, friends, and family. When I was up at school my Freshman year I was a relief society teacher and wow oh wow I loved it. Teaching others my own age principles of the church was very rewarding. With my busy schedule somehow I would find time to prepare a great lesson for Sunday. I found that as I served those around me and devoted my time to preparing a great lesson, my knowledge of what I was teaching was strengthened.
