Hi I'm Lauren

I live in Arizona. I am the 4th kid. I love to play sports. I've been called to serve in the Ohio Columbus Mission! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 15 year old high school student. i am the youngest of four. I love to play sports. My favorite sport has to be soccer. I have been playing since i was 3 or 4. I play the clarinet, i have been playing since 5th grade. I like to watch good, appropriate action/funny movies. My favorite movie has to be Elf. I love spending time with my family because we always have fun and i enjoy being around them.

Why I am a Mormon

I know this church is true because i have read The Book of Mormon and prayed about it. My prayer was answered and i know this church is true. I know Joseph Smith is a true prophet of God and that President Monson is a true Prophet of God today. Whenever i am in need of help, i go to my Heavenly Father and he is always there for me. Many of my prayers have been answered and it can even be the simplest thing. I know my Heavenly Father lives and loves me. He cares about each and every one of us. I know if i keep the commandments and stay strong that it will all be worth it in the end.

How I live my faith

I read and study the Book of Mormon every day. I try to take what I learn from the scriptures and the lessons from church and apply it to my life. I attend all my church meetings. I look for opportunities to serve, comfort, or to just be a friend to someone. I try to live in a way for setting a good example to others around me.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Lauren
It's essential to God's plan. Families are a great strength to us because they help us learn and to grow. Families are always there to support you and help you along your journey. Show more Show less

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Lauren
Men are supposed to serve a mission if they have the ability to do so. Women are not required to serve a mission. Elderly couples aren't required to serve a mission either, unless they are called upon to do so. Men serve at the age of 18, women serve at the age of 19. Show more Show less
