Hi I'm Laine Oaks

I'm a military kid. I have been all over the country. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I have many talents. I sing, play guitar, draw and most of all I write. I am in high school and I have been through hard times. I am in 10th grade and I am 16 years of age. I move every 1-4 years. Just when I get settled in a place I have to leave all the friends that I have made, but I know that I am not alone. I keep in touch with friends and for those I never had the chance to share the gospel with I send them videos and quotes to strengthen them.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church and I have had a testimony my whole life. My struggle in life is finding out if the gospel is really true because I have never known anything different from it, but when I am going through trials I have felt a presence there and I am comforted. I feel as if I am being given a loving hug and nothing can compare to that feeling. I now know that the gospel is true by reading the Book of Mormon and the Bible. Christ really lived and died for us. We cannot take it for granted. If he was strong through his trials, we can be strong through ours.

How I live my faith

I am in the Young Women's program, because I am still a youth. I was president of my class both here in Vegas and when I lived in Georgia. I go to early morning seminary every day even though I am being home schooled. I try to live the gospel to the fullest, but everyone slips. It's just a matter of if you are strong enough to get back up.

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?
