Hi I'm Laura

Hi! I love to hike, repel, sing, and dance. I live everyday to the fullest. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a high schooler who loves to learn and have fun. I love anything that has to do with the outdoors. I have a passion for hiking and writing. As I was growing up, I used to move around a lot because of my dad's work. Even though it was difficult at times, I loved to explore new places.

Why I am a Mormon

Through this gospel my life has been made whole. I was born into the church, but it took me a while to truly find my own testimony. At one point in my life I had felt so alone and distraught and I didn't feel accepted or loved by any one. As I began to read the Book of Mormon, I was able to feel of my Savior's love for me. I learned that through His Atonement I would never have to suffer any pain or affliction alone. I am so very thankful for this gospel and I know that without it, my life could not be what it is today.

How I live my faith

In my everyday life, I try and be an example for others. I am a youth leader with the young women in my church for ages 16 to 17. Although my calling is to help these girls, I try my best to make sure all the youth in my church feel included and feel like they can belong. By simply smiling and living my standards with a positive attitude, I have been able to gain my friends' respect who aren't members of the church.
