Hi I'm Laura

I grew up in Sequim, Washington, went to school in Boise, Idaho, and now I'm serving a mission in Riverside, California!

About Me

I'm a college student in Boise, Idaho I love to be outdoors, thanks to the beautiful place I grew up I have ten siblings I grew up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints I've been called to serve in the Riverside California Spanish speaking mission!

Why I am a Mormon

It was often really difficult for me growing up to stay true to my faith as there weren't many members in my home town. As a teenager I questioned what I had always grown up believing, I wondered if I really did know for myself that this was the only true church on the earth. I wavered a lot, but in the end I know it's only made me stronger. Here inside the comforts and truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ is where I find peace, comfort, and strength. Both my parents are converts to the church and I have found a lot of solace in the fact that I knew if my parents had come to know for themselves, then I could too. I have a strong testimony now of how this gospel blesses lives and touches hearts. I know that it has been restored in this day and age and that it is truly Christ's own church and that he sits at the head of it still. I hope you all come to know the same things.

How I live my faith

I live in Idaho where there are many people who share my faith so it's really easy to get involved! I love to participate in Institute (a college based education system offered through our church to help teach of Christ and His church-plus it's super fun!), I attend a student ward, I teach Sunday school classes, and I love to go out with the missionaries to help teach the gospel to others looking for the truth.
