Hi I'm LaRaya

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints my whole life and absolutely LOVE being a Mormon.

About Me

I am 17 years old and a Senior in high school. I am on a competitive dance team at my studio and we travel around the area and compete solos, duets, trios, and group routines. I have played the piano for 12 years and compete in a music competition once a year. I love animals, hanging out with my friends, nature, movies, music, and spending time with my family. I aspire to be a Physical Therapist/Physical Therapist Assistant to kids with special needs. I love children and I love helping others.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have a testimony of my Savior and my Heavenly Father. I know that my Father in Heaven loves me and that I am His daughter. I can feel His love for me as I do the things that I am commanded to do. I feel His love as I share the gospel with others, am an example to those around me, read my scriptures daily, and speak with Him in prayer daily. I am a Mormon because it makes me a better person. I am a Mormon because I love my family and friends. I am a Mormon because I love my Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon because I chose the right plan. I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I strive to do my best in everything I do and obey the commandments. I attend my church activities regularly and am constantly learning more about the gospel. I also attend church youth programs every summer and try to share the gospel with my friends. I keep a more modest code at dance and do not cuss or talk about inappropriate things. I try to say my prayers and read my scriptures every day. I attend early morning seminary at 6:00 a.m. every morning with 17 other high school students.
