Hi I'm Rachel Frandsen

I love learning new things. I enjoy outdoor sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

At the moment I am a classic college student, and I love it! It has given me a chance to get out of my home town and meet so many amazing people and learn about everything under the sun. My favorite part has been to grow in my love of trying new things. Whether it be a new sport like water polo or seeing an amazing concert with friends. I have especially have enjoyed living in a new environment with mountains and all of the beautiful scenery that come with them.

Why I am a Mormon

One of the main goals that people have is striving to be happy, and to put it simply the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints makes me happy. However, this is not the same kind of happiness that I get when I eat a chocolate bar. This kind of happiness is eternal. There are so many aspects of the church that I have been taught that touch my heart. For example, when Jesus died for MY sins on the cross, that our families are eternal, that Heavenly Father loves me as his child no matter what I do. The gospel truly brings out the best in me and helps me see the best in others as well. Although I am not perfect in doing this, I can honestly say that I am trying my best to live like Christ did. I can truly testify of this church as being the only true church not because some one else has told me it is, but because I have taken the time to read and ponder the Book of Mormon, pray to my Heavenly Father, and to sincerely ask if it is true. The answer was and still is yes.

How I live my faith

The church has provided so many opportunities for me to serve others. Whether it be participating in a service activity to go to a nursing home, being apart of a planning committee for a youth activity, or simply helping out fellow church members when they share personal stories in church. It has allowed me to expand my circle of family. In other words people that I care about and who care about me in return. The church is about support and we all play apart, and the best part is that we are all different and there is always an opportunity to teach or be taught.
