Hi I'm Lauren

My culture is a huge part who I am. My camera is always with me. I believe that happiness is contagious.

About Me

I'm living proof that where you are raised doesn't determine who you'll become. I grew up in Compton, CA and chances are if you've heard about my hometown, the connotations you have aren't exactly positive. I just graduated from BYU. I'm a lover of lists, especially of the bucket variety; there's something satisfying about crossing off an adventure and having memories for days. I'm obsessed with crime shows and graphic design (how the two relate I'm not exactly sure?). & I'm known to make a mean batch of horchata cupcakes. I'm proud of my culture and believe I owe everything to my ancestors. Planning parties is a favorite pastime of mine. I document all my adventures on my humble little blog. :] let's be amigos. lettersfromlauren.blogspot.com

Why I am a Mormon

Because every good thing in my life has come from the gospel of Jesus Christ. :]

How I live my faith

My faith influences every decision I make. I've come to learn that faith isn't something you can just claim to have. We all have beliefs, but it is faith that moves us to action. I really try to put into practice what it is I believe. The gospel of Jesus Christ has brought happiness to my life & to the lives of my family members. I'm a firm believer that when we live our lives according to the gospel of Jesus Christ, that is ultimately how we can receive the greatest joy in my life. Being happy in this life is number one on my biggest desires in this life. & I love helping to brighten the lives of others. It is because of this simple fact that I decided to serve a mission. I'm currently serving in the Texas Houston East mission serving the people of my culture, speaking the Spanish language.
