Hi I'm Lara

I like to travel, I love science, I'm empowered by my faith, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love my family, friends, and people in general (the more the merrier I always say). I have had the opportunity to travel to different places in the world meeting different people and experiencing different cultures. The world we live in is so amazing. I love the outdoors, camping in the summer and skiing in the winter. I just got a degree in science teaching with the hope to instill in students the same love of learning and enthusiasm for science that I have.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a member of the Church of Jesus Chirst of Latter-day Saints. The teachings have been a blessing in my life. As I have come to learn more about God's merciful plan for his children, I have better understood my individual purpose in this life. As I have come to learn more about our Savior, Jesus Christ and his important role in the world I have found strength. In the past, I have, like most, felt challenged, discouraged, and burdened. My faith has pulled me through. My faith has helped me develop a vision of who I am, what I stand for, and value. Everyday the Gospel of Jesus Chirst takes me out of my worries and brings me into my life. Living by the Savior's teachings has freed me from sorrow and given me independence. It has expanded my capabilities. It has helped me better understand my unique gifts and talents. The happiness and changes I have seen in my life are undeniable. Because of my faith I have an added confidence in knowing I am a daughter of God and he loves me.

How I live my faith

The happiness, strength, peace, and confidence in my life I attribute to my faith. I have recieved spiritual and temporal blessings beyond measure. How could I not want to share that with others?! A favorie hymn of mine says "Because I have been given much I too must give." I try my best to share the blessings I have recieved in my life. Whether it is through teaching, missionary efforts, or humanitarian service my goal and purpose is to lift others heavenward. I am grateful for the wonderful influence of my faith in my life. I am so proud to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
