Hi I'm Rachel

I'm originally from Pleasant Grove, Utah. I'm a nursing student, musician, and lover of the outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a fun-loving easy going girl. I enjoy running, talking with friends, or curling up with a good book. I also enjoy being outside, whether I'm hiking, boating, or looking at the stars on a warm summer night. I absolutely love my family! I'm the oldest of 5 kids and we love doing things together. Right now I am serving as a missionary in the Alpine German Speaking mission. I love the joy sharing the gospel brings me! When I get home I will major in nursing and hope to one day become a Nurse Practitioner. I really want to help the people around me and make a difference in someone's life. I am also an avid music lover no matter the genre. I enjoy dancing to the music on the radio in my bedroom or pretending to conduct a Beethoven Symphony. I have played viola for 12 years and classical music has become a part of me. Music moves me in a way nothing else can.

Why I am a Mormon

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints brings me pure joy! Seriously. I can't even express it. When I get stressed or weighed down with the weight of life's challenges, I know I can pray to my Heavenly Father who is listening and cares for me. He has lifted my loads and calmed my heart. I also find great happiness in the knowledge that I can be with my family forever. Jesus Christ overcame death which allows all of us to live again. I know that I will see my loved ones again because of Christ's sacrifice.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by letting Christ's light shine through me. I do my best to treat others the way Christ would. I don't swear or drink alcohol and instead look for opportunities to help others. I pray for those around me who are struggling and stop by when I think they need a helping hand. I have left my family and friends for 18 months to share my beliefs with the people in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. I am devoting my life to loving and serving the people there.
