Hi I'm Laura

I'm a hairstylist. I'm a Texan. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the great state of Texas! I've always been a proud Texan even though now my husband and I live in Arizona. I've been a hair dresser for 5 years and I love it! I have a fun time trying new hair color and designs in my hair. In my spare time, I love cleaning, decorating my house, yoga, listening to music and watching movies. I have a 4-legged, hairy child named Trixie. Ok, she's a dog! But she's a big part of our family!

Why I am a Mormon

I love being Mormon! I grew up in the church which was such a blessing for me. Any time I lost my way, the teachings of the church were there to help. Having the gift of the Holy Ghost has blessed me numerous times in my life. I feel the comfort each day. There was a time in my life when I first read the Book of Mormon cover to cover. Then, at the end I took the challenge to pray about it. Now, I've always known the church is true so I didn't think I needed to take this challenge, but I did anyways. I felt the spirit so strong telling me that it was true. That feeling made an impact on me that day and each day since. It testified to me that even the person who has known the gospel their whole life needs to know for themselves that it is true. I know the gospel of Jesus Christ is true. I know the Savior lived and died for each of us so we can live with our Heavenly Father again. What a blessing it is to know that!!

How I live my faith

Living the faith has always been easy for me. While I was a teenager, I participated in the youth group which taught me many valuable lessons. There weren't alot of Mormons where I grew up so everyone knew which ones of us were. They knew our values and made sure we stuck to them. It was great having that support system. Now, I get to help the youth in my ward develop those values. Currently I am teaching their Sunday school class. Each week we get to discuss different gospel topics and how they apply to their lives. I have so much fun with them! At work, I also get to talk with alot of people about the church. Usually they can tell I'm Mormon because of my modest clothes or when I mention my extended family in Utah. It brings me great joy when someones asks if I'm Mormon and follows it with, 'I thought so.' I guess I'm doing my job!
