Hi I'm Laura

I'm a wife and mother. I'm an artist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

First and foremost, I am a wife and a mother to one beautiful little girl. I am a stay-at-home mom, and feel so blessed to spend my days with my daughter. I got my college degree in fine art, and I love to develop my creativity through painting and mixed-media collages. I also love cooking, sewing, design, home improvement, reading, and exercising. I love to travel and spent months studying in Europe and the South Pacific as part of my college education. 

Why I am a Mormon

My Latter-Day Saint Mormon roots go back several generations, and I’m grateful for the legacy of faith that I was born into. I have continued in this faith because I know personally that it is true. Regardless of what my parents believe or anyone else believes, I know this church is Christ’s restored church on the earth today. I love being a Mormon, and I love the true doctrines of the gospel that give me perspective and understanding to this life. I know I am a daughter of God, who loves me. I know Christ lives, and that he is my older brother and Savior. I know Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God, and I’m grateful for his life and testimony. I love to study the Book of Mormon daily, as it strengthens my testimony and brings me to Christ. My life is blessed every day for being a part of this church. 

How I live my faith

I have served in different capacities in the church, but I’m currently serving at the president of my ward’s “Young Women” organization, for girls ages twelve to eighteen. I love working with the youth and being inspired by their strength and their purity. I teach lessons to the youth on Sundays, and I meet with them every Wednesday night to do service, build friendships, learn skills, develop talents, and strengthen our faith. I am also a “Visiting Teacher”, which is a calling to look after a few particular women in my church. I meet with them at least monthly to get to know them, serve them, and share spiritual messages with them. I cherish the friendships that have come from visiting women in my church. My responsibilities in the church have been great opportunities for me to learn and grow, and to serve those in my church and community.
