Hi I'm Laura Hansen

I grew up in Tampa, Florida. I am a missionary serving in the Spokane, Washington Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Florida as a member of the church. I played in my high school marching band. I have always loved music and still do. Music speaks to me like nothing else. I have a passion for makeup and love lipstick. Being able to express myself through the colors carefully placed on my face fills me with excitement to see how the world will react. I deliberated about serving a mission for a few months, but after I decided and turned in my papers I was postponed serving for 6 months. After resubmitting there were more delays for almost a month. But my call finally came in April 2nd the day after my 20th birthday and right after general conference were so many changes and additions were announced to the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I have found my life is happier and more fulfilled when I am an active member. Nothing else in the world has brought me such joy quite like the gospel, and the knowledge of the Savior and my Heavenly Father and the love that they have for me.

How I live my faith

I am part of a Young Single Adults ward. I am surrounded by so many strong faithful people my own age. I have been on our activities committee, and I have been very involved in a lot of help and organization of our many activities that brings us closer as a ward family. I am soon to serve a full-time mission in the Spokane, Washington Mission.
