Hi I'm Lauren

I'm a volleyball player, an outdoor enthusiast, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently attending college at Brigham Young University- Hawaii and graduate in December and I love it. I enjoy the outdoors; hiking, biking, swimming; you name it and I probably have done it or want to do it. I am a collegiate volleyball player and find myself busy all the time trying to juggle family, school, work , and sports. I love my family and enjoy traveling and learning new languages. My favorite quote is, "Live every moment, Laugh everyday,and Love beyond words".

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because it gives me purpose to life and fills me with so much happiness and love for all those around me. Even though I have grown up in the church I have prayerfully pondered my relationship with my Heavenly Father and I know of myself that this church is true. It has been restored by a prophet Joseph Smith through the power of God. I know that our Savior, Jesus Christ lives. He atoned for our sins so that we can return to him again. I know that it is by following and keeping the commandments that we can return to our Father in Heaven again. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and is another testimony of Jesus Christ. I know that temples are sacred and that the covenants we make in the temple can seal our families for eternity so we can be with them not only in this life, but in the life to come. I have seen peoples lives be blessed by the gospel and can't wait to serve a mission of my own so that I can share this wonderful message to others.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith everyday through my thoughts, actions, and words. In a world where diminishing morals and values are valued, we need to be strong in what we believe in. My calling in our church is to teach Sunday school class, especially on the Book of Mormon. While preparing and teaching these lessons my testimony of my Savior, the prophets, and the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon.
