Hi I'm Lauren

I love photography; psychology; the beach, but mostly I love my family and friends. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! My name is Lauren. I'm 25 years old. I'm majoring in Psychology, and I want to be a counselor for addiction recovery and couples therapy. I also hope to someday be a wife and mommy. I'm also a photographer. I have my own business (which has been a dream of mine since elementary school), and I love taking pictures of anyone and anything. Most people that know me will agree. I love my family and friends! They are awesome and I'm so thankful for each of them!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is true. I know that He Loves me, and so does Heavenly Father. They know me personally, and They know what I need. At times when I feel the most alone, I can pray and feel the Love of my Savior around me. I have been blessed with experiences and blessings that couldn't be from anywhere other than God.

How I live my faith

My Faith is part of everything that I do. It impacts every choice I make. I love going to church each Sunday, along with other activities that we have during the week. It's like having instant friends. I love working with the children in the church. It is so much fun to see their eyes light up as they learn something new.

Can you tell me about Mormon customs: how you dress for church, what holidays you celebrate, etc.?

We dress up for Church. Women and girls wear dresses/skirts and men wear suits, or nice pants with dress shirts (mostly white) and ties. We celebrate most holidays. Christmas and Easter are the most important since they are about Jesus Christ. But we also celebrate other traditional holidays, birthdays, and anniversaries. Show more Show less
