Hi I'm Laura

I love everything and anything about Texas. I love cats. I attend BYU-Idaho, majoring in elementary education. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a sophomore in college and I am majoring in elementary education with an emphasis in English. I love to read. My absolute favorite thing to do is surround myself with the people I love the most.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe this gospel is true. I lost my mother at the young age of 6, and from about that time all the way to to my sophomore year in college, I was inactive. My father was not very strong in the gospel and that was okay. He has been through so much and I am so grateful to have him as my dad. Well, I made the decision to come back to church my sophomore year. I always said I was Mormon because I technically was--I just didn't go. I felt like a hypocrite and I wanted to fix it. Deciding to go back to church was the best decision I have ever made. I would not be making this mormon.org profile if I hadn't. I was welcomed back with open arms. I fell in love with the gospel, and when you fall in love with something, you never want to give it up. It was so nice to have a ward rooting for me, but more importantly--a Savior. I felt His love encompass me every day. His love gave me a new perspective in life. I wanted to align my life with His. I wanted to be just as forgiving and loving as He could be. He has given me so much happiness, even though at times I feel undeserving of His love, He gives it anyway. I am a grateful member of this amazing church. I love this gospel and believe it will bring anyone who is willing to listen so much happiness. That is what it has done for me.

How I live my faith

I love attending my church meetings. I have been a teacher in Sunday school for an entire semester before. It was such a blessing in my life because we were focusing on the Old Testament. I definitely learned a lot and grew so much.
