S’more about Lara

DSC_0302

Hi! I’m Lara!

First, I have to say, if we were meeting in person, I’d much rather hear about you and your life…

 

I believe in God, I know His Son Jesus Christ lives and I try and live each day accordingly.  I believe in families and all the lessons that come with them.

 

I have been in love with my husband since 2006. And he keeps doing and saying things that make me fall in love with him all over again. It’s all very fun. =)

I wipe noses, pek peks and counters. I stop to smell flowers, I forget about stuff in the oven 35% of the time, and one of my favorite things is diving into a pool of bright, clear water on a sunny day and swimming freestyle for a bit. I love being a mom, which is good because mommy things fill all my days.  I love baking, simple crafting, skiing, snowboarding, anything in the mountains, reading, writing, photography, teaching preschool, Switzerland and China.

We named our fourth child, first daughter Eve. She died at birth. The 20 months since she died have left me learning to live with a great sorrow. The reality that all I hope for rests on the promises of the Savior has deepened my faith immeasurably.

We love the temple. We love the promise of being sealed together forever. We named our fifth child, second daughter Noelle Eve. Just as the First Noel brought hope to a dark world, in a very personal way, our Noelle brought hope again to my dark world.

I’m glad you stopped by. I need the scriptures in my life and creating scripture smores brings light to me. I hope sharing them will bring the Savior’s light, even in the smallest portion, to you!

    Lara,
    This is wonderful! I always struggle to relate the scriptures to my life and I love each experience you share and the way it relates and where it takes your thought process. I am learning-SLOWLY! Thanks for sharing.
