Hi I'm Lauren

Im in a sorority and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Im a college student, a sorority girl, a southern belle and im a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I was fortunate enough to be born into a loving mormon family. My mom joined the church in college and my dad was born into the church. I grew up going to church every Sunday and I loved it. I always felt such a warm, happy feeling at church as well as in my home. It was'nt until i was a freshman in highschool that i gained a testimony of my own. It was the first time I got on my knees and sincerely prayed to know if this was the Lords church and if the book of mormon was true. I was overwelmed with a feeling of joy, it was unexplainable. I then wanted to tell the world about the happiness i had found for myself. I am not a member because my parents and grandparents are members ... I am a member because I know for myself that this is the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. That his church is the same then, now and in the entnernitys.

How I live my faith

I come from a wonderful family. Im from the south where eveyone goes to church, although not many people in the south are Mormon. So going through school I stuck out like a sore thumb. As I have grown older I have learned to love standing out for God! Doing what he wants for me and not what the world wants. Its not always easy but I have learned it is worth it! I was diagnosed with a heart condition my senior year of high school. It has not been easy by any means but looking back at it now I see it as a blessing. When bad things happen in life you can either go one way or the other. I chose to cling to my Savior in my darkest hours, because he has allready felt everything we have went through and will go through. Sometimes we dont know why bad things happen to us but life is all about overcoming the obstacles. The hard times make us stronger! I dont know what i would have done without my Savior during that difficult time! He has never left my side. I am so thankful to have the fullness of the gospel to know as much as I can about the plan God has for us. I love my Savior, I strive everyday to let my light shine for him! He is the light of the world I want everyone to have the happiness i feel from his gospel.
