Hi I'm Laura

I am the fifth child of seven. I like to design wedding dresses. The coolest place I have ever lived is Israel. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a sophomore in College at BYU-Idaho. I spent this past semester in Israel for a study abroad program. We lived at the BYU Jerusalem Center on the Mount of Olives, while there we got to go to Jordan and Turkey as well as all over the country of Israel.I am preparing to serve in the Russia Novosibirsk Mission. My four older siblings and my brother-in-law have all gone to the former soviet union Russian speaking on their missions. I love to be outside hiking, spelunking, or water rafting. I also love to cook, read, and sew. I have interned for Allyse's Bridal and formal because I want to be a dress designer. My favorite food is either Indian or Thai. My family has a Yorkshire Terrier Teacup named Winston. My two favorite movies in the world are polar opposites and most people say that you can't love both of them. Lord of the Rings (extended edition) and Pride and Prejudice (6 hour version).

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon since I was born. I have chosen it though because I know that being Mormon is more than not drinking coffee, wearing modest clothes and going to church. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ and I love that. I want to be involved in truth

How I live my faith

I live my faith by loving those I meet. The Lord commanded us to love our neighbor and when a lawyer asked him who his neighbor was the Lord responded by telling the story of the good Samaritan. The Samaritan couldn't tell if this man was poor or rich, or any tribe the man on the road was. He just saw that the man needed help and so he gave. I live my faith by using it giving it out. I share my knowledge, my service, and my light to others so that I can hopefully help them to come one step closer to our Heavenly Father. It doesn't matter who they are or where they are at in their spiritual progression we can all help to lift each other up to gain eternal life. I have learned that when we love our neighbor's we our loving the Lord.
