Hi I'm Laney

I have four sisters. I going to school to be in the medical field. I work as a lifeguard & a CNA with cute elderly. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My life is pretty normal...at least my kind of normal. I grew up in Utah mostly, but when I was younger lived in California and also Canada where my mom is from. I have been blessed with amazing family and friends. I love to be in the water, swimming and boating. My sisters and I all have competitively swam for many years. I am a student at Brigham Young University. I'm not the best test taker so college has been quite the adventure. I have four sisters and two awesome parents and we are absolutely crazy around each other. We love to just hang out with each other and we can laugh for hours. I am working on classes that will lead me into nursing. I am a CNA at a nursing home and love to take care of others. I think that that is a big reason of why I have always wanted to be a nurse. I have grown up in the church and I am so grateful I have had the people I have had in my life to influence me in the ways they have. I am so lucky to live the life I have.

Why I am a Mormon

There are many reasons why I am a Mormon. First is because I know my Savior lives. I know that he died for me and all of my brothers and sisters. I know that he has an eternal love for us no matter what. I also want to be with my family forever, through the eternities. I know that I need to follow Gods counsel and his commandments in order to have this amazing blessing and promise that has been given to us. After reading the Book of Mormon many times I have come to know of its truth and teachings it gives to me. I am a Mormon because even through the trials I have had, the temptations and the sins I have done; God still loves me. He let his son die for me so that I can be forgiven. There is no greater love than that. Through all the rough patches in my life, I have never seen the Lords hand disappear. I am a member of the church because I have felt the spirit countless times to guide me in the direction I know to be right. I have been comforted by the Holy Ghost when I have needed it the most and also the times where I thought I could go through something alone. I am a Mormon because I know this is true without a doubt.

How I live my faith

I live my life through the way I live. I am not perfect but I try to things to share Christs love and light. The church does many things to get you involved in the ward but also fun activities outside of church. I live my faith by not participating in activities that distract the spirit and are against the word of wisdom-such as parties with alcohol and drugs. I live my faith by being myself, I don't change the way I act around different people. I just try to be the best I can and pray that people will recognize it. I know I am not perfect but I know that I can learn from others mistakes and realize how important the church is to bring people up and bring them true happiness. I live my faith by participating in my church meetings and having an open heart and be willing to listen.
