Hi I'm Lorén (Rex)

I am a professional dancer. I really like adventures, happiness and lions. I love life. I'm a convert & I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a self titled "Happiness Connessuer". I love joy. I find joy in many things especially dancing. I have been a dancer since I was 4 years old. After I graduated high school in 2010, I was on a mission to share my happy dancing self with the rest of the world. So, I moved out to Los Angeles, CA to make it happen. I was accepted on to a scholarship program at the Edge Performing Arts Center along with 3 Mormons. At the time I was perplexed, how were these kids glowing at all times of the day? "Man," I thought to myself "I want to know how my friends can glow so bright even if they are exhausted" So, being the self proclaimed "Happiness Connessuer" I am I HAD to find out more. Oh how lucky I was that they were so willing to share their secret! They taught me so many joyful things about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. How I had a loving father in Heaven who is rooting for me the entire way of this "Life marathon" (More like Iron man) and the best part was they taught me how my family could be together forever. Oh man, was I sold. I was so sold that seven months later in March, 2011 I was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Now I like to say (thanks to Christ) I get to glow. I have been recently called to serve in the Hong Kong China Mission from April 2013-Oct 2014 and I am SO very excited to share my glow with the people of Hong Kong. I know that this glow is a blessing from my Heavenly Father and I know that everyone as children of God can recieve it.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I mormon? The real question should be: Why wouldn't I be? I have found the one thing that makes me happiest in all the world; The Fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Once, my friends introduced me to their secret of their glow...there was no turning back. :) I know Heavenly Father is the root of every joyous and happy thing. I know He is striving to give every last one of His children the greatest gift of all: happiness FOREVER! That's right I said forever! Man, sounds like quite the deal to me. So, I say I take it. I am mormon because I love joy. I am a mormon missionary because my joy can not be contained.

How I live my faith

I pursue happiness. I follow where the happiness is, I mingle with it and I strive to create it wherever I may wander. I think joy is the most important gift from Heavenly Father. He created mankind to have joy. Why not take full advantage of it, you know? There are so many beautifully happy things on this earth that Heavenly Father created for every single last one of us. I live by enjoying these blessings and by doing so I like to think I am showing Him I love and appreciate Him. There is SO much joy that comes from being apart of the Lord's church!! It's so amazing how much love and light radiate from every church member and even just from the buildings. You can always tell it is the house of the Lord because of happiness just dancing off the walls. How can someone not want these things? I am SO blessed and honored to be able to serve the Lord, have me call me one of His servants and have the opportunity to ignite that light in others. I am living my faith by loving others, striving to ignite His light in them and being a faithful missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
