Hi I'm Laura

I'm a wife. I'm a mother of three children. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being outdoors. I run and bike almost year round and swim all summer with my children. We take walks, bike, and play at the park together. I love being home with my children because their happiness makes me happy. My relationship with them, my husband, and those around me are what's most important to me in this life.

Why I am a Mormon

I love The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because it is the church and gospel of Jesus Christ, that same Christ who walked the earth 2,000 years ago. He completely committed himself to His Father, obeyed with exactness, gave His life out of love, and died that I will live again. He paid the price for my inadequecies, weaknesses, shortcomings, and mistakes, and I love Him for that because otherwise I would be unable to grow and progress in this life. I live to become more like Jesus Christ because I want to live with Him again. As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I cling to the covenants I've made with God in his holy temple and know that if I do my part I will live with him again. I live to do my part!

How I live my faith

I love the women in our congregation and work closely with them to ensure their growth and their families' well-being and happiness. We love each other and care for those around us. We look for opportunities to serve our neighbors and the community in which we live. We are spiritually strong women who love the Lord, live to serve Him, and bring others to Him. Our hope is to share the truths that make us happy and help families become eternal, for this is the purpose of life! We are happy, confident, and certain that our course in life is God's course and we invite all to walk with us.

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

We need a Savior so we can return to our Heavenly Father because no unclean thing can enter the kingdom of Heaven. As we strive to become more like Jesus Christ, he aids us in our progression because he can forgive us of our shortcomings and mistakes when we sincerely repent and pray for forgiveness. Without a Savior, we would have no hope of becoming like God and returning to him. Show more Show less

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

We come to know our Father in Heaven by learning of his ways through inspired scriptures and his prophets and obeying his commandments. We also pray to him often. He loves us and wants us to become like him! Show more Show less
