Hi I'm Lara

I live in Canada. I'm a sometimes frazzled Mom to 3 kids. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a stay at home mom to 3 wonderful children, and a wife to a hard working man. I've been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for about 10 years. I was single when I joined the Church, and about 8months later I met my now husband. After we were married, we struggled with infertility. It was a huge blessing and comfort having the Gospel to fall back on. We were blessed to adopt 3 children and we know with out a doubt that these were the children ment for us.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the Church after being introduced to it thru several close friends. After several years I was ready to learn more about the Church and took the Missionary discussions. The first time I took them I wasn't ready to be baptised. I took them again a couple years later. I was ready this time. I still remember when I was baptised, and coming up out of the water it seemed like slow motion and was a really great feeling. I am a Mormon because I belive that this is Heavenly Father's gospel and I belive in the teachings. I belive because I've prayed and felt good about the things I've prayed about.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving. Serving others, my children, my family, my community and my Heavenly Father. Currently I serve as the Relief Society President. I help oversee the women's program in our area by teaching lessons, planning activites and serving those in need.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Mormon women are like all women. We love our families, we want the best for them. We are not perfect, we make mistakes. We try to better our selves thru serving our Heavenly Father. Mormon's most definatly belive in equality of men and women. I've never doubted this ever, nor have I ever felt like I was not concidered equal. Show more Show less
