Hi I'm Laine H. Allred

I grew up in Thatcher, Arizona. I have worked with cattle and horses my entire life. I am a Mormon and love my family.

About Me

I was born and raised in Thatcher, Az. where I attended all of my schooling. I graduated Thatcher High School in 2012. I like to spend time with family, friends, and with my animals. I grew up cattle ranching and have a love for that life style. I love good horses, cow dogs that mind, new baby calves, and rain. After graduation I worked on the 76 ranch while preparing and waiting for my mission. I was like any other child growing up. I played football, a little basketball, and baseball. I also worked on and kept most of the equipment in working order on the ranch. I also got pretty handy at running a bulldozer in rough country. There are five children in my family and I am right in the middle at number three. I have an older brother and sister and a younger brother and sister.

Why I am a Mormon

I feel fortunate to have been born into a family who were already members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day saints. I have had great examples around me all my life. I have been taught about the Savior and have read the Book of Mormon. I have a testimony of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon and have prayed about the things I have read. The teachings and the gospel of Jesus Christ are simple. With the times we live in now being hard and difficult it only makes sense that we have a modern day prophet to lead, guide and direct us to help us in these latter days. I know if I have a question that needs answered or help with anything I can pray to our Heavenly Father and I can get an answer. It may not be the answer I want but I know I will get an answer.

How I live my faith

I have been taught since a small child the teachings of our Savior Jesus Christ. I feel blessed that I never felt the need to live a life that would contradict the Saviors teachings. My family spends quality time with each other. I try to be a good friend and help those in need.
