Hi I'm Laurie

I'm a Mormon. The best thing in life is my family, a great husband, 6 kids altogether, and 6 grandkids.

About Me

I am one of those very busy moms. I help my husband out in the office at our Automotive Repair Business, I take care of my almost 12 year old with school, sports, music and scouts, I have an 18 year old in college and a 21 year old about to be married. I watch one of my grandchildren once a week, and he is the sweetest baby, they are all wonderful, but there is something about babies. We love to scuba dive, The only thing I love more than scuba diving, is planning scuba trips or watching tv programs or movies about scuba diving.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the church when I was eight years old. However, I am a convert. We were introduced to the gospel as a family when we were stationed at an Air Force Base in Minot, ND. I saw my parents make changes in their lives, but when the missionaries, taught me the discussion I remember feeling that it was true, as if Jesus Christ was standing there with a smile on his face and reassuring me I could trust what these two young men were telling me.

How I live my faith

One of my favorite things to do is go to the temple. We live 5 minutes from a temple and I have been going there pretty much once a week for 15 years unless it is closed for maintenance. I also love working with the youth of the church, there is nothing more inspiring and refreshing than to meet children who know who they are and what they stand for. I currently serve in Public Affairs and it has caused me to really stop and think about what people think about what I believe in.

What do Mormons believe about family?

The organization of a family was designed to give each of us the opportunity to have a mother and father that we can learn from that teach us correct principles. In this family unit we can learn about relationships, and it is my personal belief that it is up to each member of that family to work hard to succeed. There is no other success that can compensate for failure in these relationships we establish in our family. Show more Show less
