Hi I'm Laura Schmidt

I'm an Idaho girl traveling across the world to preach the gospel in Peru. I love God, life, family, and mountains. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I grew up near the mountains and enjoy anything that will get me outside: hiking, biking, skiing, climbing, kayaking, and canyonerring. i feel closer to God when I am in His creations outdoors. I also love to play tennis, volleyball, and the flute. This past year I was able to do many of these things while I was away at college. While there, I was able to spend lots of time with my siblings that also attend there and "procrastibake" with friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because living the gospel is living with joy! Nothing compares to the peace and happiness of following the Saior. When we turn to Him, He can make more of us than we could ever make of ourselves! Loving the gospel is hope, because we can become better, our very best through the Atonement of Jesus Christ!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing what I love with those around me. In my year of college, I shared my testimony with friends, family and as an FHE leader. Now I have the amazing opportunity to be a representative of Jesus Christ by serving a mission And preaching the gospel!
