Hi I'm Laura

I was born & raised in Idaho. I love to teach children. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I thrive on connecting with my spirit & other people's spirits! I love expressing my creativity through art, music, writing, & some good ol' fashioned dry humor. I absolutely love children. I love teaching them, learning from them, & being able to help their spirits grow grow grow! I am a daughter, a sister, a friend, & a reeeeally awful dancer. I believe I learn best by experience & I love every experience I get, even if it's super tough!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Mormon faith, but I didn't truly gain my own testimony until just a few years ago. My testimony was found in reading The Book of Mormon. This book contains Christ's true, fulfilled, & restored gospel. I have learned how to come closer to my Heavenly Father & His Son Jesus Christ by studying this book & praying about it. As I've come closer to Them, I've learned the source of truth, light, & peace. The gospel has gotten me through the darkest times of my life & has brought me the most joyous times of my life. Doctrines that I once doubted are now a fundamental, firm part of my faith. Things that I could not do before have become my strengths. Christ's power is prevalent in my life every single day. I am a person I have always wanted to be. Fears are hushed by the reassurance of God's glorious plan. Years of suffocating, heavy darkness has retreated from my very soul in a matter of seconds with a single prayer. I know that with faith, prayer, & desire... All things are possible. God will tend to the longings & pains of our heart. I know that we are God's children & that He loves us. I know that Christ is the true & only way to joy, peace, healing, & salvation-- He suffered for our sins & died for us so that this could be possible. I know that the Book of Mormon is true, that it testifies of Jesus Christ. I know that as we strive to learn about our Savior & come closer to Him, we will know Him. I know that any question we bring to our Father in Heaven in faith will be answered.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a missionary. I am living far away from home for 18 months to share what I believe with others, which is such a wonderful, joyous privilege. Before I chose to serve a mission, I served as a Sunday School teacher for 6 & 8 year olds. It is a blessing to be able to share the joy I have in my soul!
