Hi I'm Lauren Shubin

Hi! My name is Lauren. I am a lover of running, math, art, and everything involving the outdoors. And I am a mormon.

About Me

The best one sentence summary of myself: I like to do things that make me feel ALIVE! I love to ski, rock climb, camp, wakeboard, and mtn bike as often as I can make time for! I feel close to my Heavenly Father as I spend time in his pure, unrefined creations. I love to be outdoors especially in the mountains because it brings me feelings of peace and solitude that nothing else can. I am working towards majoring in mathematics because I love to figure out and solve problems! You know that feeling when your head hurts really bad from thinking hard? I love that feeling, and I love math because it is very exact and precise. Another thing I love that makes up a part of who I am is art. I love to create... In many different forms! I love to draw, paint, and just create pretty things. I run for BYU and running is very close to my heart because of the intense pain it brings. With this this pain also comes satisfaction and joy beyond belief!! It keeps me grounded and refines my character constantly.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this life is a very small glimpse of Heavenly's plan for me and for you. Because of the Gospel and its teachings, I know who I can experience true happiness and ultimately return to my Father in Heaven. I have read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it, and I know with all my heart that it is true. Without the gospel, I would not have an eternal goal to strive for, and my life would have no purpose. I believe that my knowledge that I am a daughter of God helps me walk with confidence knowing that I have a divine purpose here on earth.

How I live my faith

To live my faith, I try to be friendly, kind, and outreaching to everyone I meet! I think the foundation of our religion is Christ like love, so I strive to love everyone and be a friend and advocate to everyone.
