Hi I'm Lauren

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm from Glasgow. I love music - especially Country. I studied English and Religion at university. I now work in Digital Marketing. I'm a tech geek.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were converts to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, so I grew up in the Church. During High School, I questioned my beliefs. I felt like I was just going to church because my parents were and I wasn't too interested in it. When I started university I decided to pray and ask if the Church is true and if Joseph Smith really was a Prophet of God. I then decided to carefully study the Book of Mormon and in doing these things I felt a peaceful feeling that I'd never felt before. I knew it was the Spirit and the answer to my prayers: the Church is true and Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God.

How I live my faith

Studying the Book of Mormon daily helps me stay focussed and gives me guidance throughout the day and reminds me of our purpose here on earth. It also gives me clear direction in any difficult tasks I may face. It keeps me positive. I know that the more I put into living my faith, the more benefit I receive and the more joy I have in my life.
