Hi I'm Laura

I taught science and loved it. Now I stay home with my kids and love it even more. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a loving, LDS family and always planned on having a family of my own. I also knew that getting a good education would help me in every area of life including family life. I attended college and graduated with a degree in Physics Teaching. While there, I met and married my husband. After graduating, I taught science for one year before starting a family. I really loved teaching school, but I love being home with my two children even more! I feel so blessed and so happy with my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed with faithful parents who raised me in the church. I remember liking church as a child and believing that the teachings were true, so much that I told my friends about it. As a teenager, I followed the counsel of my parents and church leaders to read the Book of Mormon and other scriptures, and to prayerfully seek wisdom and knowledge from God. Through these experiences, I developed a personal appreciation for Jesus Christ's life and sacrifice and a certainty that this is His church. My faith continues to grow as I live the gospel and teach it to my children. 

How I live my faith

My faith is a part of me. It helps me be kind, patient, generous, optimistic, and happy, too! I consider these attributes as gifts from God that I need to utilize in service to others. I do the most "service" for my family, but I'm also involved in teaching the children at church. It's hard to explain the rewards that come from these experiences, but I really cherish them.
