Hi I'm Laurel Larsen

I am a wife and mother of four kids. I am a stay at home mom. I teach Zumba Fitness. I live in Shanghai. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Cincinnati, OH. I love to dance. I went to BYU and served an eighteen-month mission in London, England. My husband and I have lived in several states in America but now we live in China. I cherish my family and love spending time with them – playing games, cheering them on, taking walks, and just hanging out.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a Mormon family with loving parents and five siblings. I always felt loved and knew that I was a child of God. When I pray I know that God hears me and will answer my prayers. This gives me peace and comfort. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and want to be more like him. I love the high standards that this church gives us to follow. Obeying these standards brings great happiness to me and to my family.

How I live my faith

Being a Mormon is a great part of my life. I attend church each Sunday with my family. Both my husband and I work with the church youth groups in our area. Our kids are actively involved with the programs of our church. Prayer and scripture study are an important part of our daily life.
