Hi I'm Lara

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi I am a mother of 3 amazing, wonderful, special kids. I was born and raised in the Bay Area and do love the California weather and sunshine. I love that most of my family is close by and so are the beaches and mountains and trails and well there is never a shortage of things to do out here. Working full time and with a daughter starting middle school and another in 3rd grade and a 2 year old son, I don't have a lot of spare time so I really like to make the most of every minute. I fill my days with smiles, happiness and try as hard as I can not to worry or stress. (not good for the face - lol ). But, for real, I have struggles and challenges and trials that I am faced with everyday, who doesn't? If you don't I need to learn your secrets!! It is what you learn from them and how you deal with them that make you who you are.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the church and being a Mormon! When I say that I really mean that! I love the way I feel recharged after church on Sunday. As I mentioned I am a single working mother and the church has provided me a loving network of women and friends that are truly there for me. It feels like a real family! My family moved quite often as I was growing up and I remember going to a new school and that empty scared I am born and raised as a Mormon and have a strong testimony of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

Choices and Free Agency make up our daily lives and why not have a guiding light? I am grateful for the gospel and how it is teaching me to be a better mother to my children, a better friend and some day a great wife. I try to make good choices and to live my life in such a way that I would be proud of my children making similar choices. I want to do good and be good!
