Hi I'm Lauren

I'm a student, an artist, and a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student working towards a Bachelor's degree in English language with minors in visual arts and editing. I am one of the few people in this world who have a love for grammar. I also love drawing, painting, crafting, and creating. However, I have recently put my education and interests on hold in order to serve as a Spanish-speaking missionary in the Canada Calgary Mission. I am thankful for the opportunity to be a missionary, and I know that God will bless me for the sacrifices that I have made in order to serve a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

As a young child, I never had the influences of a church in my life. When I was eleven years old, my friend invited me to go to her church with her. Little did I know that it was the same church that my mother had been raised in. It was The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I few months later, after receiving the missionary discussions, I and my sister were baptized on the same day. I was eleven, and she was 8 years old. We were baptized by my grandpa. Now my family is active in the Church, and I hope that generations after me will continue to be faithful members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. There is no other path to complete and lasting happiness. I am a Mormon because being a member of this Church gives me direction. I have goals that I want to reach with the help of my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. As a Mormon, I know that I never have to go through a trial alone, and that the Lord will never give me a challenge that I cannot overcome. This Church brings me hope and happiness in this life.

How I live my faith

I have been involved in my church community in many ways; however, I am currently serving as a full-time missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am dedicating eighteen months to serving others by helping them come unto Christ and find everlasting happiness. I am striving to live a life of charity and love as I put my trust in God to help me be a good missionary.
