Hi I'm Laurie Hildebrand

I'm a Mormon. I am a stay at home Mom of three. I love to work on home projects, & work at the kids school as a teachers aide.

About Me

I am a stay at home Mom, & married to a wonderful hardworking man. I love to craft, work on projects on the home, and work at my kids school as a teachers aide.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the mormon church in a strong LDS family of ten. Because of the teachings of the church we are still today very close and good members of our communities. We haven't always made the correct choices, but because of being members we have answers to many big questions like "Who am I, Where am I going after this life, & can my family can be together forever." It gives me peace to know that I have a loving Heavenly Father that wants the very best for me. I have found that through much needed prayer that my Heavenly Father listens when no one else does. He is constant, and forgiving. I have found out for myself that I am a Daughter of God, and that my family can be together forever to return to live with our Heavenly Father someday. the Gospel gives me purpose and reason to my life.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith day to day. As parents we make sure we follow the church's counsel to read the scriptures, and pray as a family everyday. We're not perfect, but it has given us direction when we have needed it and brought the spirit and more peace into our home. I also work with the women in the church. A large part of my work is to look after the spiritual welfare of the sisters. Helping to increase their faith and personal righteousness. Helping and serving them has increased my testimony of how much our Heavenly Father relys on us to care and watch after one another here on earth. We as members have a responsibility not only to the members of our church, but to our neighbors in our communities. Our Heavenly Fathers plan is so amazing and we all have a part in it. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ. His atonement has helped me to bear my burdens. I know my Heavnely Father lives and that Jesus is the Christ, and I know that if we try to follow and keep the commandments and our covenants to serve him, that we will be blessed. It has been such a testimony to me while raising my own family. We are loved by Him!!
