Hi I'm Laura

I grew up in Las Vegas, I love dancing with my kids and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Mom of 4 girls under the age of 7. My life is full of chaos, amusement and quiet moments of gratitude. I never thought being a Mom could be this polar, but I love it. I am currently working towards being a certified holistic health coach, which I NEVER thought I would be interested in doing, but here I am! Life is full of surprises.

Why I am a Mormon

Everyone who is raised in a Mormon family eventually has to become converted for themselves. I am no exception. Over the years I have recognized God's hand in my life leading me to the truth of all things. It is not a blind faith I have, but a faith that has come from sacrifice, study and prayer. By allowing my life to be led by God and the truth I have sought I am truly happy despite the difficult times, despite the stresses and worries of the world. I am at peace because I know the truth.

How I live my faith

I try, every morning, to start my day with prayer and a study of the scriptures. The days that I do this are noticeably better than the days I don't. If I do this, I am more patient with my children, and I feel more in control with the potential craziness around every corner. Right now I am a Sunday School teacher for the adults in my congregation and this has helped me apply wonderful stories of real heroes to my everyday living. I have been doing this for about a year and a half and feel I have changed in very significant ways because of my deeper study of the scriptures. And to share what I learn and see other lives change as well, is both humbling for me and awesome.
