Hi I'm Rachael

I grew up in south Florida, then moved to Utah to attend school. I am a happy wife, mother, employee, and student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I moved all over the US growing up, but my family settled in sunny Florida. I ran track and cross country in high school. I also sang in the show choir. I studied English at BYU and am working on my getting my masters degree in creative writing and English online. I am a wife to an amazing man and a proud mother of a sweet baby boy. I love to exercise and spend time with friends and family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this gospel allows me to know, love, and trust God. So many people have sacrificed so much for this Church, including young Joseph Smith. With blessings such as eternal families and the potential to live with our Heavenly Father again, we can know how much we are loved by the divine beings who created us. I always have direction in my life. Every time I have a question, I can ask myself: What will bring me closer to God? What would Jesus Christ do? Every time, I know what to do or at least where to start.

How I live my faith

I am in a married student ward, so it's mostly young married couples. I am the activities leader for the women, so I get to get all of the women together to do fun activities together--everything ranging from making quilts to doing yoga.
