Hi I'm Laura

I grew up and live in Texas. I'm an attorney. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother to a sixteen- year old boy. I work for a Medicaid HMO in the Compliance field. I am an attorney but enjoy the behind the scenes work much more than litigation. I was a nurse until law school so I have a nice varied background. I enjoy reading and playing the piano.

Why I am a Mormon

Peace. I have felt this peace and love wash over me since the missionaries started teaching me. The missionaries did not give up on me, even when I told them that I would never be. Mormon. I know now thay they were only following God's instructions. I prayed and read the Book of Mormon as the missionaries asked of me. Then one day, it hit me like a ton of bricks. I know this is true. Hellelujah. I felt this joy and happiness inside. I wanted to sing and scream and shout, "It is true. The Bood of Mormon is is true. Our prophets are true prophets. And I am happy."

How I live my faith

I am a new member being baptized on February 23, 2013. I am scripture hungry and dedicate an hour every day to just me and God. I study scripture and general conference talks during thiis time. (I have a lot of catching up to do.). I talk to God, meditate, contemplate and pray during this time. Sometimes I can spend the whole hour on one verse of scripture as I try to understand what our Father in Heaven is saying to me.
