Hi I'm Lara!

I have lived and loved this church my whole life. I am serving as a full-time missionary in McAllen, Texas starting Sep 6th.

About Me

Hello! I'm an college student at Brigham Young University - Idaho. I have been called to serve in the McAllen, Texas mission starting September 6th 2017. I will be serving the Lord for 18 months. I have one sister and one brother. I am the youngest of the three but I am the only one to serve a mission. I love to travel, have new experiences, and I love learning new things. I will be teaching the gospel in Spanish. This church makes me so happy. There is no way all of this could have been faked. I hate it when people give that excuse. How in the world could a 14 year old boy have lied enough to make a world wide church full of amazing people?! One of the best things about this church is the fact that all the people are so nice and willing to help. I know that this is Christ's true and restored church on the earth today. You can too!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I learned for myself how true and life changing this gospel is. Although I've been a member my whole life I still had to try to find faith in the church. And, I did find it. It's everyday. Everywhere we go and everything we do is a testimony of Christ. Everything that you or I or ANYONE has, is provided in one way or another by God. He can give and take just as easy as we can. I know that Christ lives and I live through him. My knowledge and use of the atonement has changed my life. No one is perfect. The atonement works and it's real. You don't have to know how something works to see the effects of it. The atonement is an example of that. This gospel truth makes me happy and I am eternally grateful for that.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being willing to do whatever the Lord tells me to do. I constantly am trying to recognize the Spirit and what I am being led to do. I try my best to be kind and loving towards everyone. I love being silly but there is a time and a place for everything.
