Hi I'm Laura

I am a mother. I am a wife. I am a daughter and I am a sister. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for 11 years now and have 4 children. I am a stay-at-home mom but I have a teaching degree and spend a lot of time volunteering in the schools and homeschooling preschool for my children. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, reading books, crafts and playing Guitar Hero!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love what the LDS religion stands for. I love that we strive to live each day to be better than the one before. I love that we understand that we all make mistakes and that our Savior, Jesus Christ, will stand up for each of us at the last day and save anyone who believes in Him. I love that we have a prophet on this earth to help guide us each day to keep us on the path of righteousness. I love that we have the Book of Mormon to be a companion to the Bible because it is just one more place I can go to learn more about Jesus Christ. I love that worthy males can hold the priesthood and perform ordinances on earth that allow us all to be able to enter into the Celestial Kingdom and live with our Heavenly Father again. Most importantly, I love being a Mormon because I have been sealed to my family for eternity, and that is something that can never be taken away...

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying everyday to be a little better than the day before. I try to be a good example to those around me by trying to outwardly live a Christ-like life. Some days are harder than others, but I remind myself everyday that my Heavenly Father loves me and will help me each day to do my best in any situation--if I just trust in Him, I cannot fail...

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Laura
Take the time to truly educate yourself about the church by talking to missionaries or active members of the chruch. Pray to Heavenly Father and ask to know if Mormonism is true. The Holy Ghost will confirm the truth of this religion to you if you seek the answer with a true and honest heart. Know that each religion has people who once believed, but lost their way so be cautious who you discuss your questions with and alway pray to know the truth for yourself... Show more Show less

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Laura
No, we do not worship Joseph Smith. Jospeh Smith was called of God to restore the true gospel of Jesus Christ to the earth. We are eternally grateful to Joseph Smith for sacrificing his life so that we could have the restored gospel, but we know that, as said in the commandments, we are to worship only one God...the God of the heavens and the earth. I personally thank Joseph Smith in my prayers, but I pray to Heavenly Father in Jesus Christ's name. Show more Show less
