Hi I'm Laura

I'm a midwest mom living in FL with my family loving homeschool, the beach, art, books and life in general. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello, I'm a stay at home mom and homeschooler. I'm passionate about reading, all kinds of art (including the fingerpainting kind), and learning with my kids, oh ya, and butter, love the stuff! I enjoyed becoming a full-fledged Bobwhite. Etsy is my favorite website, Pinterest is a close second, Pride and Prejudice is my favorite book du jour, my favorite movie is whatever hits the spot on Netflix instant watch and I think Chuck Berry can sing Lady Ga Ga into the ground.

Why I am a Mormon

Being Mormon has allowed me to search for the Savior and find him everywhere. I see him in my children, my husband, my neighbors and my community. I'm a Mormon because I like to study, ponder, and pray. I have attended other faith services for many years. Not one time have I felt the Savior, the Holy Ghost, my Heavenly Father as close as I do in any Mormon congregation I have attended. It feels like the veil becomes translucent. The love and light is filtering through to warm my spirit and uplift my soul. I am a Mormon because the Book of Mormon is true. I have learned to look to the Savior for my answers, to know who he is, who I am to him, who I can become by choosing to accept his gift of the Atonement. I'm Mormon because I believe in the Savior's love.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in a myriad of ways. I listen to and read scriptures with my family over breakfast. I talk about how our thoughts and actions affect our ability to have the Spirit in our home. Things that would dampen or darken the feelings in our home are simply left behind. I serve in my church as a Ward Missionary where I get to share my testimony. I study my Sunday School lessons and attend Sunday School in-depth lessons whenever I can. I live my faith by looking for the Savior in my thoughts, my media, and my surroundings every hour by hour.
