Hi I'm Lauren

I was born in Germany and raised in the U.S. I'm a college student, housewife, and mother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Lauren, as you can see. I'm a college student (studying to be a History major) that happens to have an amazing husband and baby boy. My son and husband are my life. Our little family brings joy to me everyday, and I wouldn't change a thing about our life. I love reading and writing, cooking and eating, spending time with family, and occasionally doing something crafty. I know Christ is my savior and I strive to be more like him everyday. My goal is to be as close to Christ as I can be. I love the gospel and the scriptures. They bring me closer to my goal every time I read them.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that this gospel is true and through Christ, my savior, I can be saved from my sins to live with my Father in Heaven. I know the Book of Mormon is true and I know that it's another testament of Jesus Christ. Prophet Thomas S. Monson is the true prophet today and he receives modern revelation to help us come closer to our eternal goal, to get back to our Heavenly Father. I love this gospel and I know I'd be lost without it.

How I live my faith

I teach the kids in the primary from the ages of 4-6. They ask lots of questions and since I have a class with short attention spans, things can get a little crazy at times, but I love it. Every Sunday we get to learn something new about the gospel. My class is full of little sponges; They love the stories I get to tell them from the scriptures. They aren't the only ones learning, either. As I prepare my lessons for them (and teach them), I learn something new.
