Hi I'm Laura Michels

I'm a mother of 3. I'm an artist, singer, computer nerd and crocheter. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of 3. I am a wife to my wonderful husband. I love to sing and am a member of the Minnesota Mormon Chorale. I love serving in church callings. I have a passion for theatre. Our family has been through major struggles but we have survived and come out on top. I am a firm believer that whatever doesn't kill you makes you a stronger individual.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church. I always went to church with my family, but didn't really gain a testimony until I was in college. After moving away from home, I was able to choose for myself whether or not I wanted to be a member of the Church for real, and it turns out that I really love being a member of this wonderful church. I enjoy getting to know other members and learning about other people's talents and how we can all work together to make those talents blossom.

How I live my faith

I have had many opportunities to serve others in the Church. I mostly contribute musically. I have been choir director on two different occasions in my life, and I have enjoyed learning more about the Gospel through music.

How can faith in Jesus Christ influence us in our marriages and family relationships? in our friendships?

Laura Michels
Having faith in Jesus Christ can teach us to live more like Him, with patience and love. Adopting Christlike qualities in our own lives can improve our family relationships by helping us be more understanding and loving towards each other. Show more Show less
