Hi I'm Lauren

I love theatre. I'm a dancer. I'm a redhead, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised in San Diego and moved to Utah for college. I love performing, whether it be musical or theatrical. I've always been a thrill seeker and love going on fun adventures. I love classic movies and music from the past. I am a swing dancer. The most important people and relationships I have are with the Godhead and my family. I love people and am constantly trying to understand why each of us are different and what has made us into who we are.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I didn't realize how important it was to me until I was a teenager. It is Christ's church. Jesus is always there for me and knows exactly what I am going through. He made the decision to take upon himself the pains of everyone that has ever and will ever live so that we can return to live with our Heavenly Father. What an amazing example of love! Being a member of this Church has helped me to understand who God the Father, Christ, and the Holy Ghost are and build strong relationships with them. Because of the teachings of the scriptures and living prophets on the Earth, I don't have to be afraid of what is to come. I know that Christ will return to the Earth. This knowledge brings me such happiness! I want to share that happiness with everyone around me! Anything is possible with help from on high. I am given strength when I pray and read my scriptures. Everywhere I look, there are constant, simple reminders of the love God has for me. I am His child and know that He loves me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by simple acts. I share my happiness through smiling. I try to serve others wherever I can. I know that's what Christ does. I might not be able to fix all of the world's problems, but I can do small things to help the people in our world. I help with the music in our meetings at church. Through that music, we can be touched and get closer to God. God has given me strengths and talents for a reason and I try to use them to bless His children.
