Hi I'm Lauren

I grew up in Washington state in a small suburb of Seattle. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the Seattle area and love the Pacific Northwest. I grew up with all sisters and enjoy being an aunt to 4 nieces and 3 nephews. I currently work at a large aerospace company doing finance and have worked there since I graduated college. My husband and I live in the city and we love exploring the city and finding new things. We also really enjoy being outside and we go hiking and camping regularly. My husband and I are enjoy traveling and are currently planning our next trip to Europe.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in to a mormon family, but I have had so many hundreds and thousands of experiences of my own throughout my life that have built my faith and hope in Jesus Christ. Be they small or large these experiences have witnessed to my soul that Jesus lives, that Heavenly Father loves me, and that His gospel has been restored again to the earth. What an incredible feeling it is to have the knowledge of these things and to know that I can live with my Heavenly Father forever. I receive such peace and strength in living God's commandments that it makes my life full of purpose, joy, and peace. I have been to other churches and talked with others about their beliefs, but being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is where I know God wants me to be and where I feel the most peace and love of God.

How I live my faith

I currently help out with the classes for 2-3 year olds at church and absolutely love it. It's amazing to see that this children already know that God loves them and have so much faith in that fact. We have weekly lessons on various topics including "I Am a Child of God," "I Can Be Happy," and "My Family Can Be Together Forever."
