Hi I'm Lauren

I grew up in Santa Cruz Ca. I'm a Registered Nurse. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just graduated college and completed my nursing degree. It was an incredible experience that showed me the importance of valuing your health both physically and spiritually. I love to read, go to the beach, and spend time with the people I love. I am leaving to serve a full-time mission as a nurse in Nicaragua for the next 18 months.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church by my parents. They taught me about God and His son Jesus Christ and all the values and beliefs of His church. My conversion was a slow progression throughout my life. It came with me personally choosing for myself to live the commandments of God and see how they changed my life. I have never experienced such happiness and peace in my life than when I live the teachings of His gospel. It has truly freed me from the sorrow and guilt that comes from sin. I know why I am here on this Earth and have found my path to true happiness by being a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

How I live my faith

Serving others is a great blessing and faith builder. By taking that time to forget myself and help another helps me to meet people and share my beliefs. Some of my greatest friends and people in my life I have met when someone has reached out and helped me or I have been able to help them.
