Hi I'm Laurie

I'm a part-time real estate agent, full time mom and grandma. I love life and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

First and foremost, I am married to my best friend and have been for 22 years. I have 2 beautiful daughters and 2 amazing sons. I became a grandma within the last year and it is the coolest thing ever!! I am a huge sports fan! My friends make fun of me because I actually like to listen to sports talk radio. I love going to my kid's games, exercising, reading, and singing. I also love hanging out with my family. I am a part-time real estate agent and I love it!! My favorite thing is helping people find their homes. It is very rewarding!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church, but that is not the only reason I am a Mormon. As a child I never doubted that this is Christ's church restored to the earth, but as I grew older, I reached a crossroad in my life and had to decide what I really believed. I was interested in a career that I knew would be hard to pursue and still live the standards I had been taught. I prayed to know which way to go and chose to follow the gospel and it's teachings. I never looked back and have never regretted my decision. I have such peace in my life that comes from the sweet knowledge that my Savior lives and loves each one of us, that He has a plan for us and that he has provided guidance to his children in the form of scriptures, living prophets and answers to personal prayers. As I have read and studied the Book of Mormon, the spirit has testified to me of the truthfulness of that great book. I have seen it's power work in my life and the lives of my family. I am truly grateful for this knowledge, it is my most priceless possession.

How I live my faith

Living my faith is something I strive to do on a daily basis. I try to live a life full of gratitude. It is amazing how much easier hard times are when you look for the good things in your life. I also try to love those around me by serving them and letting them know how I feel about them. I am not perfect at it by any means, but I am trying to become more like Jesus Christ every day. I have had many opportunities to teach and organize activities for the youth in my area. That is my favorite! I love teenagers!! I also feel lucky to be able to participate with music in choir or smaller numbers. I love the spirit that good music brings into my life.
