Hi I'm Laura Rose

I used to be the girl no one wanted to take home to mom. Now I have a wonderful husband and 3 daughters. I'm a VERY HAPPY Mormon!

About Me

Born and raised in Arizona, I thought it was strange to feel like there was always a rain cloud hovering over my head. That's what it was like not knowing happiness. I looked from place to place but always ran into more trials and never truly found joy. In 2000, when I had come to the conclusion that life was about rolling with the punches and what didn't kill you made you stronger, I finally found hope. I had learned the purpose of life and about what the Savior had done for me and it changed my whole world. Now I am happily married to the best husband in the world and I have the 3 most beautiful daughters anyone could ever have. My life is full of joy and it really is a bright sunshiny day in Arizona everyday!

Why I am a Mormon

I was at a time in my life when I had no purpose. Life wasn't all that bad but it definitely wasn't good. I wasn't really looking to change anything either. I was introduced to the missionaries when they were visiting my grandmother who had just had a stroke. I was just trying to have a polite conversation with them when they invited me to hear the Missionary discussions. I thought I had lost my mind agreeing to meet with them but in the weeks to follow I found out I was wrong. After listening to a few discussions I started to feel that God size hole that was in my heart begin to fill. I knew what I was learning was true. I knew that even though it meant I would have to give up my worldly ways, I would find joy being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ. My life has been filled with joy since I was baptized. I attend church faithfully and live the Gospel everyday so that I can continue to have a life full of happiness.

How I live my faith

Simple. Live the teaching of Jesus Christ every moment of everyday. Love one another. Do my part to strengthen my family and serve my friends and neighbors. Read the scripture and pray for His Spirit to help me better each day. I'm not perfect but I am still learning and I just do my best. I know that's all He asks.
