Hi I'm Laura

I love to laugh and to run. I have a family that is so much more than i could ever ask for and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am serving a mission in Spain! I am originally from Idaho and I like to run and be outdoors. I was lucky enough to grow up in the LDS church and I am so thankful for it. It has been such a blessing in my life. I have two of the best parents in the world and two brothers that bring more joy to my life than anything. I love to study foreign languages and hope to teach them in the future.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it has brought so many blessings to my life. There have been things that have happened to me where I think, how can I not believe in this gospel?! Everyday, I can point out tender mercies that the Lord blesses me with and that makes me want to continue to grow in the gospel. I also love the feeling of the strong spirit. When I feel the spirit strongly, I can't help but smile big and be so thankful that I have the gospel in my life. I just can't believe that out of all the religions in the whole world, I am actually lucky enough to know the true gospel of Jesus Christ. I also notice that when I am diligently doing the things which I am suppose to be doing, I am so much happier as a person. I have two great role models in my life...my mom and my brother. Watching them and how they live the gospel make me want to become that much stronger because I can see all the great blessing one receives. I am a mormon because I love it. I love how it leads you to live a happy life and the blessings it gives you. I love that our loving Heavenly Father has provided a way for us to get back to Him. The gospel is true and how great it is!

How I live my faith

To live my faith, I try to be as involved as I can. Of course, I attend all my meetings, but I like to do more than that. I love going to the temple. Going to the temple has brought such great blessings. The temple has done incredible things to my life that I will forever be grateful for. The sweet spirit in there is just overwhelming and so strong. I also love going on Thursday nights to the temple to watch the Mormon Tabernacle Choir practice for the next Sunday. It is so cool to see them live and so close up. They remind me why I love the gospel so much. Plus, after I watch them, the temple is all lit up at night and it is one of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen! Praying and scripture reading are two of the most important things I do to live my faith. I ALWAYS notice a difference in my day if I don't get down on my knees and pray or read the scriptures. There is just something missing. Plus how lucky are we to be able to have a way to communicate with our Heavenly Father and to have the truth upon the earth in our life. We are all so blessed.
