Hi I'm Laura

I love soccer, singing, good books, and spending time with family.

About Me

I am the fifth of six children and absolutely love it! Having four older brothers left no room for being a wimp. I love spending time with my family! We go camping, play card games & board games, and simply spend time together. I'm no professional, but playing soccer is one of my favorite things. I may be a tad too competitive. Writing songs is another way I spend my leisure time. My most recent song called "Surrender" is focused on aligning our will with God's. I also enjoy reading, watching movies, and being spontaneous. When I return home from serving a church mission I will be studying nursing and living life to its fullest!

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? First I think I should answer why I follow Christ? Because He is my Savior. He suffered in the garden of gethsemane for me as an individual and I know that to be true. He left the perfect example for all men to follow so that they would know how to live their lives. Not only did He suffer for my sins that I might be forgiven and be able to return to my Father in Heaven, but He suffered for my heartaches. He suffered on the cross and still had the courage to beg for forgiveness for His accusers. He rose from the dead and showed us that we too would be resurrected. Why am I a Mormon? Because this is God's true church on the earth today. I was raised by my parents in the LDS church but that is not why I continue to attend. I have gained personal revelation, have felt the spirit, and heard the prophet speak and I know that this is His church. It is organized after the same manner that Christ organized His church while He was still on the earth. I felt His Holy Spirit testify to me that this is indeed His true church and I yearn for all to know it, and more importantly to know Him.

How I live my faith

I enjoy living my faith by teaching others about it! Telling people how dear the Gospel of Jesus Christ is to me helps them to understand ehy I live tis way. I try hard each day to follow the example of Jesus Christ and live my life the way He did. The more I read the scriptures, pray to my Father in Heaven and serve those around me, the happier I am.
