Hi I'm Rachael

I grew up in Southern California. I am going to BYU-Idaho to major in business management. I am Mormon.

About Me

I live in Southern California and love the beach. I am going to school at BYU-Idaho to study business management. I want a career in event planning.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up Mormon in Southern California so there were not a lot of members in my area but as I grew up and read the Book of Mormon over and over I knew that the gospel was true and that the church was true. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that Joseph Smith restored the gospel to the earth in the later days.

How I live my faith

Growing up I have been the only member of the church in my grade at school so I had to be strong in my faith and let others see my faith by being an example. As I got older I was assigned to teach the youth and young women which allowed me to teach others to have faith.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Missions are not required in the church but for young men starting at age 18 it is strongly encouraged and it has become more common for young women starting at age 19 to serve missions as well. Show more Show less
