Hi I'm Layna

I live in Provo. I am the youngest of 8 children. I love sports. I am happy. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am in college. I'm going to be a dental hygienist. I love spending time with my family. Especially my nieces and nephews. I enjoy playing sports. I played basketball and lacrosse in high school, it was great. I love painting my nails, laughing ridiculously loud and eating everything!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints is true. I live this gospel because it makes me happy. I have a purpose. I have direction. I have peace. I have joy. I have tested what the prophets have asked us to do and I know that their counsel is the ONLY way to true and everlasting happiness. I feel that everyone in the world is looking for happiness, I've found it. I still have problems and struggles. But the gospel gives me a different perspective because I know I have a loving Heavenly Father who is watching over me and molding my life into the best it can be as I follow him. He truly can make my life better and happier then I can on my own. I have read the Book of Mormon and I know that it is true. It has answered my questions in life and has brought me strength. There is so much power in reading it daily and making its principals the foundation of your life. I know that Christ atoned for my sins and for yours. He can heal our hearts and change our natures if we utilize the gift of the atonement and turn to him. Any mistake we've made or pain caused by others can be reversed. He wants us to turn to him and be clean and confident. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has brought me true happiness and I know that it can bring anyone and everyone the same happiness. I LOVE being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday and I try my hardest to be true to my beliefs everyday of the week. I have kept my standards high and it has brought me so much peace. That is one of my favorite parts about being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I feel peace and assurance knowing that I have a Heavenly Father who loves and cares for me. We can all have that special connection with him. I will be serving a mission to show my Heavenly Father how grateful I am for the blessings he has given me and to show my devotion to him.
