Rachel Clawson grew up in Highland, Utah in a very faith-filled home and is a practicing member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Rachel and her husband have lived in Canton since 2008 when he accepted a job at the Ford Motor Company. They have four children and their extensive travels have taken the whole family to 15 countries, including England, where Rachel’s husband has recently completed a year-long work assignment there for Ford. Over the last 10 years as a stay-at-home mother, Rachel has taught piano, made wedding cakes, worked as an event planner for local non-profit organizations, and volunteered at the Plymouth Historical Museum writing content for various exhibits. She is also a member of the Plymouth-Canton Interfaith Outreach Coalition. Rachel graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in history. As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she served in many different capacities including choir director, organist and event planner. She is currently serving as the Public Affairs Director for the Westland Stake. The majority of my services has been as a youth minister. While serving as a youth director in England, she established a cultural exchange program connecting Latter-day Saint youth from London, northern England, Paris, and the U.S for faith building events. About two years ago, Rachel started a website called gatheringfaith.org where she advocates for religious literacy and shares her interfaith experiences. She is also working on a book called 'Celebrating Faith' which seeks to educate young people about various world religions through the lens of their holy days and festivals.
