Hi I'm Laurie

I grew up in Indiana, born in Niles Michigan,live in Louisiana, and am a member of the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Later Day Saints

About Me

I used to be so very lost living my life one day at a time, raising my two children alone, and doing whatever it took to get by. Life has not been an easy road for me I have survived many afflictions and tramatic events in my life, and I have always had my Lord and Saviour beside me, to offer his loving reassurance's and guide me through life struggles.Without Jesus in my life all I can say is where would I be. I have always had some form of divine intervention in many situations I found myself in, I thank Heavenly Father for that, in the almighty name of my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. He has truly sent me angels to intervene for me in bad situations,and you may or may not believe in the power of prayer, earnest, faithfilled, pleas to Heavenly Father, which He does indeed answer. I have spent years searching for the right church to attend, and about a year ago I asked Heavenly Father to show me the one true church that I may go to where His divine grace has embraced, no more than two days later, I came home from town and there was a card on my front door with a picture of the most beautiful church and I had this inner voice telling me to call the number, I did. Now I have found my place and a Church family I am spiritually lifted and it is the most wonderful feeling of Grace to be a member. I was sceptical due to the name of "Mormon", you need not be afraid just open your heart and let us introduce ourselves to you. That empty feeling can be replaced with divine love

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormom? After many hours of gospel study and listening to the missionaries speak of the restoration, this new gospel I found it quite possible that Jesus the Christ did indeed show Himself to Joseph Smith and speak to him about a future Church which would be founded on the Gospel principles given by Heavenly Father, ordained through a modern day prophet and I believe this to be true. Think why wouldn't it? Read your scriptures, how many prophets have there been since God created the earth, man kind and every living thing on earth? We know for a fact that Jesus lived here as a man on earth and suffered a cruel death for me and you, and He then raised up from death to speak to His disciples and women also, why then is it so hard to believe He would again show Himself and ordain a Prophet in todays society? We need Him. I have found in this Church the Spirit of Christ Jesus, the almighty power of the Holy Ghost, and a Christian environment which truly stands for Christ, We are not poligamists, we are not a cult, we are children of God following His Holy Commandments and embracing a kind of love that only exists through Faith, Heartfelt Prayer, and scripture study, the Book of Mormon is unlike any other book in the entire world, unfortunately though people are afraid of it, please don't be afraid, read through it, and you won't want to put it down, it is awesome, I have found myself after years and years of going through life in a circle, this Church represents the True Church of Christ, He loves you, I Love you, and please come visit us...

How I live my faith

I live my faith through prayer, and scripture study, I seek the guidance of my Lord Jesus Chist, and love the warmth of his graceful embrace, I am truly overwhelmed with the spirt in me and can only say that He is my God, going to this Church is in it's self Grace and His presence within totally awesome. I live my faith in every breath I take, I enjoy reading especially my Bible, the Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants oh how awesome these words are to me, I find such peace and serenity in pondering the scriptures and talking to Heavenly Father, Jesus is the way to eternal life and you can feel the same way I do if you just give us a chance to enlighten you to a beautiful modern day way of letting the Lord lead you to salvation.
