Hi I'm Laura

I'm a full time missionary serving in the great white north. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am serving as a full time missionary for the Mormon church for a year and a half. I am serving in the Canada Calgary mission! I have already witnessed many miracles and it's only been two months! I know with out a doubt the things I'm teaching are true!!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church, but I still had to learn for my self that it was true and be converted. Otherwise I wouldn't still be going. The reason why I am still a Mormon is simply because of Jesus Christ. I have come to know because of the doctrine of this church and following it's principles, that Heavenly Father sent his son to Atone for my sins. There have been times in my life that I have felt so alone, like no one could ever understand the sorrow I was going through. But, because I strive to do what's right, through the things this church has taught me, I know that Jesus Christ has felt all of my pains and afflictions and he will not leave me alone. He loves me and I can feel him put his arms around me and whisper that he loves me. That is why today I am still a Mormon, and will always be.

How I live my faith

I love the opportunity that I have in this church to serve and be given responsibilities. The best way to show love for Christ is by showing love to those around us. I was able to do service for widows and widowers that live in my area. It was amazing to see their faith and love to the Savior. I always come away feeling that I got more out of my service to them.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

A testimony is simply a witness of something that you know to be true. Kind of like in a court when they have testify about the true story. But when we refer to a testimony in a church setting it is a witness of something that was given to an individual by the Holy Ghost. Every testimony is based of the knowledge of our loving Heavenly Father, His son Jesus Christ who Atoned for our sins and that Joseph Smith saw the father and the son, he restored the true church to the earth and he translated the book of Mormon. By having a testimony of those things you can basically have that witness of anything like faith, prayer, Thomas S. Monson (a living prophet on the earth today) and so much more. Show more Show less
