Hi I'm Lauren

I'm a military wife, I'm a student, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been attending BYU-Idaho since September 2007. I love it here! It's so great to be apart of a campus where the spirit and the students are so strong, I wouldn't trade it for anything! I really felt the love of my peers last year when my husband deployed. He had completed four deployements before but his fifth would be the first one completed when I would be attending BYU-I. I was worried about being at school where everyone seems to be a newly wed, but instead of people distancing themselves from me, I felt nothing but love from the people around me. They all greatly strenghtened my testimony of service and love.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because with my husband's job and the sadness that it sometimes bring darkness to our lives. The church brings light and love when everything around us seems to be filled with sadness. You can't help be feel the love people have for you every day at church and the light that is brought to your home after reading your scriptures.

How I live my faith

I lived my faith my providing others with the hope that their is life after death. To be in the military and not have this belief just makes your day to day life hard to live.
