Hi I'm Laura

I grew up selling lemonade in a small town and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a convert to the Mormon church. I am also a college student studying Agricultural Education. I am in love with baking pies, I am a sister, a daughter, and a dreamer. I was raised in the country, selling lemonade and catching tad poles. I have never question my divinity, and I believe every child should be raised with the knowledge that they are children of our Heavenly Father, and he has a plan for us all.

Why I am a Mormon

Coming from agrarian Southern California my parents found Utah to be safe and healthy place to raise their children. Because they chose to move to Utah, I was exposed to the church in my younger years. My parents are not members and raised me and my siblings in rural Utah at the head of a dirt road. We gardened and showed livestock and were taught the principle of work, the simplicity of happiness, and the necessity of helping others. The principles they taught me were a headway into the church.My parents, being the valiant Christians they are, allowed my interest in the church. I attended the Mormon church socially, but was often blessed with a spiritual lesson learned. I investigated the church for 7 years, and I now know that those 7 years was me callusing my pride, and making excuses. A lot happened in those 7 years: scripture study, girls camp testimony nights, youth conference, church activities, relief society activities and participation in a singles ward. I was active, and not yet baptized. Baptism is what made me realize that FAITH is an action word. I acted, and it is the best choice I have ever made in my life. My young adult baptism was at the age of 19. I am now 21 I believe in this church, and know it is true. I'm a happy person, I have been blessed, and I try daily to achieve my worth for I know it is great.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by looking for opportunity to help others. This is important to me because of all of the help I have received in my life. I live my faith by studying the life of our Savior Jesus Christ and trying to be more like him. I have the opportunity to help write thank you cards in our ward, words of affirmation are so valuable. I am aspiring toward my degree in education and while I am in school I have kept contact with local schools to support their FFA programs by being involved as a leader when I can.
