Hi I'm Laura

My children and I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

About Me

I am the single Mom of two amazing children. I work as a Mortician and co-own a fabric store. My family is extremely important to me and we spend most of our time together. We like to do almost any kind of art, but our favorite medium is paint.

Why I am a Mormon

My upbringing has a lot to do with my decision to be a member of the church. My Mother was an active member and my Father left the church to become Atheist. We were a military family and moved every two years or so. I grew up seeing that the church was consistent in every new place we lived. I attended our meetings, but also visited other churches with my friends. I think I always knew the church was true, but, through prayer, study, and life experiences at the age of 17, I came to a full realization that the Gospel was and is true. I invite everyone to read Moroni 103-5 and take the challenge to read and pray. Once you know the gospel is true and make the decision to follow it you will see miracles take place in your life.

How I live my faith

I try to be a good example by living what I believe and repenting when I make mistakes. I am not perfect, but I strive to be true to who I am. I am a daughter of God. Jesus died for me. If he knew I was worth that sacrifice then I should live in a manner to be worth that sacrifice. We are the only LDS family in our town and that provides us opportunities to answer all sorts of questions.

What is the difference between attending a Mormon Church and a Mormon Temple?

Laura
 Church is a place where we go and renew our baptismal covenants by participating in the sacrament. We also hear or give talks on gospel topics and attend classes that present the Gospel in connection with our everyday lives. Anyone may attend, regardless of their commitment to living the standards God has set for us. The temple is a place where we perform certain ordinances for ourselves and then in proxy for the dead. Any and everyone is welcomed on the condition that they have been baptised and are currently living certain standards. We have two interviews and then recieve a recommend (a card) that shows we may enter. The temple is a sacred place to us and we are joyed when our friends and families become eligable and able to attend with us. Show more Show less
