Hi I'm Lauren

I'm from Colorado. I'm a student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a university student studying to be an editor. I served a mission in the California Arcadia mission, Spanish-speaking. I am studying Spanish in school and I work at the MTC as a teacher. I love running, yoga, latin dancing, writing, traveling, watching movies and plays, horseback riding, and reading.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Christ's church. It is the same church that he established when He was on the earth. I know that Thomas S. Monson is God's prophet in these days. I love living the teachings of the gospel, as imperfect as I am, because it makes me happy. I've never found as much happiness, peace, and joy anywhere as I have living what the Church teaches. I love reading the scriptures, especially the New Testament and the Book of Mormon. I love feeling the Spirit so strong when I read Christ's own words and his teachings. It helps me be motivated to be a better person. I love talking to my Heavenly Father in prayer. I know He's listening and that He sorrows with me when I'm sad and is joyful when I'm happy and probably laughs at the stupid things I do. The gospel of Jesus Christ gives me hope. I got the chance to serve as a missionary for the Church and it was the best thing I've done so far. I met wonderful people who inspired me and I learned so much about myself and God's plan for His children. He has a plan for all of us to return to live with Him if we will follow his commandments.

How I live my faith

In the Church we have a women's group called Relief Society. We get together to have fun and learn things (like how the heck to cook or change a tire) and to serve in the community. Right now my job is to help plan these activities so if you know of anything we can do to serve please share!
