Hi I'm Rachel Causse

I am BYUI student hoping to become an Occupational Therapist. I am a sister. I am an optimist. I love psychology. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am the second child of five kids, and I love my family. I am a student at BYUI and my goal is to earn a Masters degree in Occupational Therapy. I enjoy playing the piano, and hanging out with friends in my spare time.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have felt God's love and guidance throughout my life. I know He loves me and this is His true church. As I study the Bible and the Book of Mormon I feel enlightened and God's presence in my life. I was raised as a member of the church and so I have always believed the gospel to be true. Although, during my senior year of high school and my first year of college I began doubting if the answers to my prayers were genuine, or if they were simply a figment of my imagination. I stopped studying the scriptures and I felt empty. One day my mother made the observation that I was not very happy, and I was a lot more joyful when I read the scriptures. Time passed and eventually I decided to try reading the scriptures one more time, (but I thought if I felt good about them, it would probably just be my imagination). I was amazed at how strongly I felt the spirit. How could I possibly have imagined it? It took time, but after a lot of prayers, and studying, I felt like I finally knew that God is there, God loves me and He always answers prayers. Sometimes the answers come in different ways, and take longer than we were expecting. Now I try to study the scriptures daily and do things I know God would have me do. As I strive to do God's will I find more peace and joy in my life.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a primary teacher at church teaching five year olds every Sunday, and we have a lot of fun! I try my best to be a good sister in my family, and I am preparing to serve the Lord by going on a mission to serve the people in Milan Italy!
