Hi I'm Rachel

I grew up in Austin, Texas. I love to sing and play my guitar. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm from Austin, Texas and am currently in my second semester of college! I'm studying to be an Accountant and hope to one day have a masters degree in Accounting. I love to go running (when I can wake up early enough in the morning which isn't often hahaha), sing, and play my guitar when I have free time.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of this church my whole life. Although this is the case, it doesn't mean that it's always been easy following some commandments and going to church every week. Growing up I leaned heavily on my parents' testimonies of our church and didn't start developing one of my own since this past year. I know that this church is true. Life can be hard, but I know that without the church and the gospel in my life, it would be harder. Because of this church and this gospel, I know where I came from, why I am here, and where I am going. I have noticed a difference between when I am following the commandments and when I am not and have seen the effects of both in my life. I know that following the commandments and being obedient in this church has brought many blessings to me and has given me happiness. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and that he atoned for all of our sins so that we may have the opportunity to repent and be with him and our loving Heavenly Father again. I love my Savior and my Heavenly Father. I know that they love me and that they have that same love for each and every person on this Earth no matter the choices that have been made or beliefs.

How I live my faith

I am currently preparing to serve a full-time mission for my church in Seattle, Washington!! I'm really excited to serve a mission and can't wait to teach others about the gospel and serve others for 18 months!
