Hi I'm Lauren

Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. I am a mormon and proud of it.

About Me

My name is Lauren Gilbert. Before I made the decision to go on a mission I moved to Provo, Utah and attended Utah Valley University. My goal is to graduate with a bachelors in Communications and then go to The U to get my masters in Social Work. I absolutely love being surrounded by my friends and family. I love laughing and meeting new people. I also love to read, spend time outside, and try new things.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been so beyond blessed in my life. I know that this church with all of my heart. I have a loving Heavenly Father who loves me and who knows me. He has a plan for me and I know that when I am obedient I am being directed down the right path. I'm so grateful for my loving Savior. He, too, knows me and loves me. In times of doubt and despair, anguish and fear, He is there. He is the only person in this world who knows what I go through and is the only one who can say that He knows how it feels. Because of Him I can be forgiven for the mistakes that I have made. We all can. Without His loving sacrafice we wouldn't have the atonement. And without the atonement we wouldn't know happiness and joy. I know that Joseph Smith is a true prophet. As is President Thomas S. Monson. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. With it we can seek answers and come closer to God and Jesus Christ. I love this gospel with all of my heart and am so grateful to be apart of it.

How I live my faith

Participating in my ward is very important to me. It's a great way to meet new people and to gain a better relationship with people in my community.
