Hi I'm Laura!

I'm native Arizonan, I'm a wife and mother, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a 20-something wife and mom of two kids, ages 5 and 3. I work from home running a daycare so that I can stay home with my kids during the day. It's a lot of work but it's so rewarding to me to have this time with them while they are little. I have a degree in business and hope to go back and become a nurse once my kids are in school. I enjoy reading, painting, and cooking.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a member of this church and have been lucky enough to never disbelieve it's truth. I have always known the church was true and while I've struggled to do what I know is right, just like everyone else, I have always had that testimony to rely on in times of trial. The gospel strengthens me in my everyday life and my main goal as a parent is to teach my children the truths that they will need to make good decisions in their own life. I am so thankful that I can be with my family forever and I try to live every day with that goal in mind.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through the "small and simple things". I try to look for the good in situations and I try to use everyday situations as teaching moments to teach my kids about gospel principles. I do my best to be a positive influence on those around me and treat others the way the Savior would treat them.
