Hi I'm Laura

I'm from Colorado, and I'm a college student. I love the outdoors and spending time with my friends and family.

About Me

I am the youngest of 5 kids. I am going to college, but have not decided on a specific major yet. I love spending time with my family, and enjoy being outside - fishing, hiking, camping, and eating ice cream as often as I can. I work on a landscaping crew but find time to play tennis, basketball, and other sports. I recently traveled to Europe for the first time and it was incredible! Probably the coolest thing I've done in my life so far. I hope to travel more in the future, but can't afford it yet as I am still a measly poor college student.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I feel that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints perfectly resembles the church Christ would lead if He were on the earth today. I have learned through experience that the principles and doctrines taught in the LDS church, especially regarding families and life after death, bring peace and comfort, and have guided me throughout my life to bring me more happiness than I know I could find anywhere else. I am grateful to be a Mormon because I know I will be with my family forever and can live with God after this life. Being a Mormon brings me more peace, comfort, and happiness than I could ever imagine without my membership in the LDS church.

How I live my faith

I am in a ward with other college students, and I serve as a ward missionary. I help to make sure people feel included and involved with other people in our ward. I also serve as a "visiting teacher" where I serve with one of my roommates and help two or three girls about our age and at least once a month meet with them to make sure they are doing well, and help with anything they may need. I love sharing my beliefs/faith through music, both instrumentally and vocally. I love to play and sing hymns and arrangements of songs that teach about Christ and His life and love for each of us. I am preparing to serve a mission for 18 months, where I will serve people and share my beliefs with them. I cannot wait to have my sole purpose be to help others feel Christ's love for them.
