Hi I'm Rachel Truman

I am from Las Vegas, Nevada. I love Irish Dance and music. I go to byu and I love it! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of 6 kids and I love being an older sister. I have attended one year at byu. I'm not sure what I'm studying yet, but I'm thinking of maybe becoming a dental hygienist. In high school I loved to irish dance. I also played the piano and participated in choirs. Right now I'm on a mission in the Portugal, Lisbon mission. I love this gospel and love talking to other people about their religious beliefs.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church, but at 8 years old I made the decision to be baptized. Since then, I have come to know for myself that Jesus Christ is our Savior, and when he was on the earth, he set up a church that would help us become more like him. I know that Joseph Smith restored that church and that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is indeed Christ's church. Because of what I know about this church, I can't help but want to share that knowledge with everyone. I have found that when I am fully involved in church and seeking to serve others, I am a lot happier than when I just focus on myself. I'm mostly grateful for Jesus Christ and his atonement. He gives me hope and joy and provides an example for how I should live my life!

How I live my faith

Right now I'm living my faith in a big way by serving a mission! But before that, I loved to serve in my church by teaching lessons and just being friends to other members. Now, as a missionary, I can take what my leaders taught me and lessons I learned from my parents and try to apply them to how I teach the gospel. I want everyone to know what I know, but I also like finding similarities in other faiths!
