Hi I'm Lauren

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a die hard water polo fan/player. Anything that involves chlorine and water, I am there. If I could make a perfume/body spray scent, it would totally be named "Swimmers Dream" (chlorine scented of course). I recently developed a love for competing in cycling. Cycling is right up there with water polo, can't decide which one I like better. I was born and raised in Huntington Beach, California (Surf City), so therefore I love the beach. My favorite activity to do at the beach is a corn roast... roasting corn in a CLEAN garbage can over a fire. I am a total lover of roller coasters. Disney Land is NOT the happiest place on earth, Six Flags Magic Mountain is. I am a absolute LOVER of CHOCOLATE... doesn't matter what kind of chocolate, except orange flavored chocolate, even though my favorite color is ORANGE!!! My favorite shoes are my bright orange old school vans. I love to bake, anything, as long as it doesn't involve cherries, I HATE CHERRIES. Hot dogs are gross too. I am a hamburger type of person, I love my red meat. I am going to school to be an elementary teacher. I am accident prone, and can't even walk on flat ground, but I can ski down steep hills (black diamond steep- ironic right?). I love shopping but don't like spending money (MY money). My goal in life is to complete an iron man, CRAZY!!!! I am serving my Lord and my God in the Belgium/Netherlands mission and I couldnt be any happier!!!! But I am a MORMON!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a mormon my entire life and it wasn't until recently that I realized why i keep living the gospel. Since I started college, I have found that I have more time in my day when I go to institute, read my scriptures, and say my daily personal prayers. I know that when I am following Christ's example and doing my best in all that I do, he helps me when I have struggles. He "pulls" me up the hill. I have found great peace in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and continue to find peace every time I read my scriptures, attend my church meetings, pray, sing/play hymns, and attend the temple as often as I can.

How I live my faith

I practice my faith through playing music. Every Sunday I play the organ while people sing along. It is great fun, especially when I am playing my favorite hymns or fast hymns. It is my pet peeve when organists play like they are leading a funeral march, so I make sure to play hymns fast.

Are Mormons Christians?

Yes we are Christians. We are The Church of JESUS CHRIST. We believe in Christ, we talk of Christ, and we try to convince others to come unto Christ. Everything that we do as a church is centered around Christ and his gospel and teachings. Show more Show less
