Hi I'm Laurel

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Southern California and live in Arizona now. I'm an attorney, a mother of three, and an avid reader.

About Me

I grew up with four brothers who teased me mercilessly. They're some of my favorite people to spend time with now, though. I have been married for seven years and have three daughters, who are the lights of my life. I am an attorney and have a passion for helping who really need help. I love to read, travel, and spend time with family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I read the Book of Mormon and tested out the promise in Moroni 10:3-5, which says to read it and ponder and then ask God if these things are true and by the power of the Holy Ghost you will know the truth. When I prayed to know if they were true I know that God answered me and that they are true. I am a better person because of the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As a mother, I am so grateful to have the tools to teach my children things that will bring them happiness and peace in their lives. I know that God answers prayers. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior. The things that I know bring me peace and happiness and that is priceless to me.

How I live my faith

I have spent a lot of time working with children and teenagers in my community and ward. I've taught 4 year olds and teenage girls, played the piano, organized activities, and made lots of dinners for new moms. I love having the opportunity to serve and give back because I have been so blessed in my own life.
