Hi I'm Laurel

I'm a first baseman, a cat lover, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a senior in high school. I've played fastpitch softball for as long as I can remember and I'm about to sign with West Georgia. I love to wakeboard and I live for camping trips at the lake with my family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I gained a true testimony of the gospel about two years ago in my sophomore year in highschool. I studied the Book of Mormon and started to journal the spiritual events in my life. As I did this, I became aware of the blessings that my Heavenly Father gives to me every day. I follow the gospel of Jesus Christ because I know that when I do what he would have me do, the blessings are endless. Following the teachings of the church help me live a happy and gracious lifestyle.

How I live my faith

I really enjoy studying the scriptures, but sometimes I forget or slack off. For this reason, I love to go to the seminary scripture study class in the morning so I can keep myself on track with my reading. Seminary also helps me understand the meanings and teachings of the scriptures. I find that my days always start out better when I go to seminary and really try to understand the teachings. I also try to keep my moral standards so that I can be clean and worthy to enter into the presence of the Lord.
