Hi I'm Laura

I'm a collegiate athlete at BYU and currently serving a mission in California!! I love life! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving a mission in Los Angeles California! I love being a missionary! A mission is the best thing I have ever done. I love to run and this past year I attended school at Brigham Young University where I competed on the cross country and track teams. I also love being outdoors and singing to the radio. I love spending time with my friends and family and I don't know where I would be without them.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love this gospel more than anything. I would truly be lost without it. I know that we have a Father in Heaven who loves us more than we can comprehend. I have felt his love for me so many times and I'm so grateful. I know that He hears and answers my prayers and truly cares about me. I also know that Jesus Christ loves me. I know that Jesus Christ atoned for not only my sins, but the worlds. I am continually grateful for the atonement in my life. With the atonement I have the opportunity to change to become closer to Christ and to my Heavenly Father. I know that this is the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that through the power of the Lord he translated the Book of Mormon. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that it is another testament of Jesus Christ. I am grateful for the knowledge that I can live with my family and Heavenly Father again by following Jesus Christ's example for me and by continually striving to become more like him. I love this gospel. And I love my Savior and my loving Father in Heaven. They are my everything. I would be lost without them and without the gospel in my life. I'm a Mormon because with the gospel in my life I am a better and happier person. I have felt peace and joy in this gospel and I know that this Church is Christ's church on the earth today.

How I live my faith

As part of this Church I strive to magnify my callings. I have served with my youth groups multiple times and have loved working with my youth leaders and helping those around me. I also strive to attend the temple, where I feel uplifted and enlightened. I read my scriptures daily and attend my church meetings weekly to keep me close to my Heavenly Father. Most of all I try to be kind and helpful to others. It is my wish that I can lead others to Christ by being the best person I can be. Another way I strive to live my faith is by continually striving to be a better missionary. As I serve I continually work to become a missionary instead of just being called as one. I want to show my love for my Heavenly Father by faithfully serving Him with all my heart, might, mind and strength.
