Hi I'm Laura

I'm a happy Mormon. I grew up in Houston, taught music and choirs.

About Me

I'm a mom, a grandma, a hiker, a biker, a former teacher, a pianist, a reader, a language lover.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a pragmatist. When I hear new ideas I like to research the information and find out if it makes sense to me. So when invited to read the Book of Mormon and to pray about it, I took that challenge. The answer that came then and since then has always been yes. I continue to learn and grow, to question and search. I want to understand more and more truth. As I continue to grow, I have received more answers from my Father in Heaven through His Spirit. I have received His comfort and guidance through challenges. I cherish what I have learned trying to follow Jesus Christ and His authorized servants. I love serving others and finding greater joy as I continue to live His gospel. It helps me come closer to God, to my precious husband, and to my family and friends. I'm a better, much better person because of living the principles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. If I continue faithful to the end of my life, I have the promise of living forever with God and my family. And that's all I want.

How I live my faith

My favorite calling is Visiting Teaching - getting to know other women and helping to meet their needs. It has brought me so much joy! I also teach children's music at church every Sunday. I love learning how others learn best and seeing them get excited about new ideas.
