Hi I'm Laura

I live in Logan Utah. I am a full time student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the second oldest of five kids. I grew up in Utah with all of my family and my adorable cat. I love to play sports. I love to play any sport, anywhere, any time of the year. I'm going to college in Utah and love every second of it. I don't know what I want to do when I get older, but I love to learn and I love to meet new people. I spend my free time reading science fiction, practicing baseball with my three younger brothers, and daydreaming about places I want to travel to.

Why I am a Mormon

The most important reason that I am a Mormon is because it makes me happier. When I live the principles of the gospel I am showing our Heavenly Father that I love him and that I am willing to live his commandments. In return, He has promised that we will have the holy ghost with us to support us in our trials and comfort us in our times of need. I have experienced the warm presence of Heavenly Father's love for me as I have tried to live by the principles of the restored gospel. There have been times in my life where I have been without this feeling of peace and comfort. Without the daily reminders of His love that I have experienced from living the gospel, I have felt fear, anger, depression, and a lack of hope. Our Heavenly Father loves us and does not ask or want us to live in darkness. Because I make an effort to follow his commandments, He has blessed my life and given me the chance to return to Him again and live with my family forever.

How I live my faith

It is easy to live the teachings of the church if we have the holy ghost with us in our lives. Going to church, reading the scriptures, and praying daily brings us closer to our Heavenly Father and enables us to have the influence of the holy ghost. As I strive to make the holy ghost my constant companion, it becomes easier for me to live the commandments and feel the pure love that Christ feels for all of God's children. When I feel this love for others, I become closer to my family and find it easier to help others with problems they may be having in their lives. I've found that one of the simplest ways to show my love for others and support them through their trials is just being a friend.
