Hi I'm Rachel

I'm a Mormon. I love art.

About Me

Hi, I'm Rachel. I am married to my wonderful husband Aaron. We do not have any kids, but we hoped to blessed with them someday. However, in the meantime I enjoy to company of my two cats who are so adorable. I am an art historian and teach at a local college. I love interacting with different people I meet. When I get a spare moment, I enjoy a good book, cooking, or just spending time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

 My parents joined the church when was about 3 years old. We rarely missed a Sunday and I loved the people and teachings of the church. As I grew older, however, I knew I had to truly decide for myself. I decided to "test" out all the principles I had learned, but never really acted on such as prayer, scripture study, and repentance. Throughout this experience, I gained a sure testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I found that all the blessings that were promised in the scriptures by trying to live a life patterned on Jesus' teaching were fulfilled beyond anything I could ever imagine.

How I live my faith

 Each week I get the joy of serving in the children's program at church. We have so much fun playing games, singing, and learning about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Some weeks it can seem like a big struggle, but the rewards are worth the hard work. It is simply amazing to see the light of Christ in shining the faces of the children.
