Hi I'm Laura Tingey

I'm serving a mission in Chile. I love the outdoors. I enjoy traveling. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Laura. I love my family more than anything. I have been blessed to have many wonderful friends in my life. I love being outdoors. It's the best place to be, enjoying this amazing earth. I spent a summer working in Minnesota in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area and it was a wonderful time. I am a student at Brigham Young University Idaho currently in between two majors. I have always had a love for the Latin culture which works out perfectly because I have been called to the Chile Santiago East mission. I enjoy tie dying. I have played the violin ever since I was a little girl. I love life and I'm grateful for all of the blessings that we are given each and every day.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because being in this church holds me to higher standards and let's me show my love and appreciation for the Lord. I feel so blessed to have born to a family that has taught me to live righteously in this church. I am a Mormon because it gives me hope for my life here and hereafter. I know that Christ loves us and He suffered in the Garden for us. I know that Joseph Smith is a true prophet. He really did see a vision and he went through all that he did because he knew it was the work of God.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by living in a way that would be pleasing to the Lord. I try to see the Lord's hand in my everyday life. I attend my church meetings every week and I strive to read the scriptures every day. I try to follow the commandments that have been set out for us to follow. Many times it may seem hard but we will only be blessed from these actions. I try to have an attitude of service to help those around me. I pray for the Lord to be with me everyday. I have served in a variety of postions from teaching to activity planning. Basically I strive to be the best that I can be every day.
