Hi I'm Laura States

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music, playing the piano/violin, and spending time with my wonderful husband and son. I also love doing things outside, like rock climbing, camping, canoeing, paintball, and just about anything else you can think of that you do outside. I love going to my younger sister's band competitions and watching her be spectacular. I am currently a college student and am looking to get my degree in nutrition, exercise, and health sciences.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always felt God's presence and love in my life, and I don't think that He would bring us here with no direction or guidance in life. I am a Mormon because I have a strong conviction that this is God's true church. The many experiences I have had have increased my faith and complete trust in Him, and I am truly grateful for them.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to set an example for others around me. Trying to help answer questions and share the gospel with my friends or co-workers is another way I try to live my faith. I also try to participate in as many service projects as I can. I love to serve others. It gives me a sense of gratitude for the many wonderful things I have in my life.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Laura States
For me personally, I have come to know our Father in Heaven through sincere, heartfelt prayers, asking for guidance and assurance in my life. I have also read the scriptures over and over, and have always found new things that taught me about Him. Also keeping his commandments has truly blessed my life. Some say that it is too hard to obey the commandments and that they are too restricting. I have seen people who do not keep the commandments, and their lives are so much more miserable. By keeping the commandments, they actually keep me safe, and I know that he really does love and care enough for me to give me the commandments and guidelines I need to navigate through this life.
