Hi I'm Lara Shaw

I have lived most of my life in the northwest of the United States. I enjoy traveling with my husband. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I currently work with elementary school students in the Limited English Proficiency program, helping them to improve their English speaking skills, and I love doing this. I also enjoy traveling to different parts of the world with my husband. We have been to many different countries, but are most excited about our travels to countries where they speak Spanish. We love speaking their language. My husband and I also enjoy working on humanitarian projects that help improve the quality of life for misfortunate people.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I choose to continue living the way that I have been taught all of my life to live. By continuing to live this way I feel that I have the proper perspective of life and the way things are supposed to be. I feel that I am also more likely to be in a position to receive the blessings that our Heavenly Father wants me to receive. My life is full and rewarding because I have chosen to live the teachings of my church, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church meeting every Sunday, and by committing myself to being a better person each week.
