Hi I'm Rachael

I was born in Minnesota and grew up in the Boston area. I attend BYU and I'm preparing to serve a mission in France!

About Me

I am currently a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and I am serving in Paris, France!! I'm from Boston, and I put my education on hold to serve this mission. When I return, I will study molecular biology at BYU. I love to read, sing, play ukulele, cook, and spend time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Mormon church, so I have been living this way my entire life. That doesn't mean, however, that I'm just doing these things because I'm supposed to. I've been learning about the gospel of Jesus Christ for my entire life, and although I'm still pretty young, I do know some things. I know that we can learn the doctrine all we want, but we are always asked to find a testimony of the truth for ourselves. I have found that testimony of the truth for myself by communicating with my Father in Heaven through prayer and through reading the scriptures. I know that I am a daughter of God, and that He loves me, and wants me to succeed in life. I know that He has given me so many blessings in my life, and I am so grateful for His love for me. I'm so happy to have this opportunity to serve and to give back a little bit all the things that I have gained from my membership in this Church. Right now, my sole purpose is to share His gospel with the people in France, and I couldn't be happier!!

How I live my faith

I am currently living my faith in a very active way by serving a mission! As a missionary, I spend my time teaching other people about the gospel of Jesus Christ. I invite them to improve their lives by drawing closer to God and Jesus Christ. Being a Mormon brings me so much joy in my life that I want to share my happiness with other people! I love being a missionary and taking this time to serve God and His children.
