Hi I'm Rachel

I am a student, a runner, and a traveler. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up near Salt Lake City, Utah and I love to be outside -- especially hiking and camping. I am the youngest of 4 kids, and each of my siblings have served missions and married in the temple. I'm currently attending school at Utah State University, and am called to serve as a missionary in California.

Why I am a Mormon

Although raised as a member of the church, it wasn't until my last year of high school that I began to understand what it means to follow Christ. Reading the Book of Mormon and visiting with fellow members of the church, I started to see changes in myself that I had never before seen. I was becoming a better person, I was reaching out to those around me, and I was overcoming my fears. Upon completion of the Book of Mormon, I knew that this is the true church. This is His gospel established again on the Earth, and I am so grateful for that knowledge.

How I live my faith

I attend church on Sundays and activities with the ward throughout the week. I volunteer at the local schools and visit with other members and friends throughout the week.
