Hi I'm Rae

My home town is Erda, Utah. I paint with watercolors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student, I just finished my first semester, and I love it there. I won't be back there until 2018 though, because I am going to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints! Serving a mission is something I have always wanted to do, and I have been sincerely preparing to serve since I was fourteen years old. It is a lifelong plan that is being realized... so it is kind of surreal.

Why I am a Mormon

My family inherited our religion, but my parents have always given us the choice to go to church, and my faith and belief is all my own. I love God, and I see miracles everywhere. Reading the scriptures has made me who I am today. Reading The Book of Mormon has especially strengthened my belief in my Savior. The Book of Mormon is a great manifestation of God's love for all people, not just the Jews. God speaks to all people, and He appeared to not just the Jews but the people of ancient America as well. I believe that Joseph Smith was not only a good man, but a prophet for our time, and he restored Christ's primitive church that was lost in the Dark Ages. And that is just the tip of the iceberg...

How I live my faith

I believe that nothing is more important in this life than being kind to the people you associate with. I live my faith by trying to be kind and smiling at everyone I meet.
