Hi I'm Rachael

I love calligraphy. My siblings are my best friends and I have been assigned to the Texas Houston South Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love school. I'm in my third year at the university but have decided to pause for a year and a half to serve a full time LDS mission. I love art and creativity. Even though I have chosen a major relatively unrelated to it, I will never be able to give it up. I enjoy studying calligraphy...among a thousand other things. I've learned, though, that there are different subjects in school, but in life they eventually all compliment each other...which is comforting when you're still not completely sure what career you should choose.... I love living next to the beautiful mountains and enjoy all the activities that the mountains provide. God has created such a cool place for us to live in!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it feels great to be a Mormon! I believe that the gospel of Jesus Christ taught to us in church is freeing! I also believe that same gospel was the gospel taught by Christ himself when he walked on Earth with apostles, prophets, and evangelists, just like the scriptures speak of. The gospel allows me to progress. If followed, it sets my life and my families' lives up for success. I believe the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has the fullness of God's teachings and it provides so much hope and fulfillment in my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church on Sunday, reading and listening to uplifting things, and by looking for ways I can be of service to those around me. I try to make people feel comfortable when they interact with me. I hope that when people talk with me, they feel like they are talking to an old friend. I've heard that when we eventually meet Christ, we will be surprised how familiar He is to us. I also live my faith by serving an LDS mission, which has taken more faith than I ever imagined.
