Hi I'm Laurie

I am a wife and Mother of 5 children. I love being a Mormon.

About Me

I love hiking, boating, Lake Powell, baking, and spending time with my family. I love sports and am very competitive. I love life and am happy to be living in this beautiful world. My family is one my greatest treasure. One of my favorite things to do is go to the Temple. Three of my children are now old enough to do baptism for the dead. Words cannot describe the feelings I feel when I have watched my husband baptism my children in the Temple. My heart is overwhelmed with love and gratitude. Being at the Temple always strengthens my testimony of the important of always staying worthy to go.

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed to be raised in a home were we were taught the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have had many challenges and trials in life. Through these time I have experienced a witness to me that God really does live. I know I am a daughter of God and he loves me, and I love him. I have felt this as a burning in my heart. Someones a warm tingling feeling over comes my body. Sometimes I have just felt an overpowering love that has brought tears to my eyes. Because I know My Heavenly Father loves me and Knows who I am. I cannot dine the feelings I have felt. I know without any doubt that I am on this earth for a reason. I know I belong to the only true church on this earth. Which is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I know that my loved ones that have passed away in this life, are alive in Heaven. I will see them again and my Savior Jesus Christ! I know the Book of Mormon is a true book. I know Joseph Smith saw God the Father and his son Jesus Christ. I am thankful to have a living Prophet, Thomas S. Monson to lead and direct our church. I have joy and peace in my life when I am following the teaching of our Prophets. I am so thankful to be a Member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day saints. I would not trade it for anything!

How I live my faith

I look forward to going to church every Sunday. I currently serve as the Young Women President in my ward. I feel it a privilege and honor to serve these beautiful daughters of God. They hold a special place in my heart. I pray and read my scriptures daily. I always have a prayer in my heart. I look for ways to help others. When you are in the service of your fellow beings, you are showing God that you love him.
