Laura Tamondong

What's the most sensible thing you've ever heard someone say?
When I was going through an extremely difficult period of my life, my father said to me "keep fighting! My desire is not for you to be happy, but to be holy". I was so angry at the time, thinking parents are supposed to want their kids to be happy. I am truly grateful for my father's wisdom to point me in the direction of seeking the Lord and not only my personal happiness.

What gets you excited about life?
Helping other people truly energizes me and makes me the most excited. When I am able to use the gifts and skills God has given me to benefit and make someone else's life better, it is a natural high for me.

If you had to teach something what would you teach?
I feel I try everyday to teach people to see things through someone else's eyes, from a different perspective than just their own. When we are able to get out of our own head and have empathy for others, then the world becomes a better place.

How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?
Because my life has been incredibly packed with amazing experiences and deeply painful moments as well, I think I would have to be middle age to fit it all in. So my guess would be early to mid forties.

What is your idea of a fun date night?
Any time my husband and I have time to get out and reconnect without children has the potential to be a fun date. But some of the best times we have had together are going to concerts. Not only do they include great music, usually good food, but we seem to have made many major life decisions, such as moving or going on a vacation, at concerts.
