Hi I'm Lauren

I am from Riverside California. I am the youngest of seven kids. I rock climb, and surf. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a missionary for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am 20 years old and serving the Lord in the Fort Collins Colorado mission. I am the youngest of seven kids. I want to help people to be healthy naturally. Before I came out on a mission I went to school at Brigham Young University- Idaho. I love to spend time with my family. I love rock climbing, surfing, yoga, eating, running, swimming, biking, hiking and basically anything that involves water.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because all the things that i want for my life are being fulfilled by being a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. I am a little bit of a perfectionist and i have found that i cannot be perfect on my own. I am so grateful to be able to know that I have my Savior Jesus Christ to rely on. He helps me to over come the things that i cannot do alone. I am a member of this church because through relying on the savior I know that i will be able to be the best me that I can be. It is important to me to be able to reach my full potential and I know that I can only achieve that through Jesus Christ. That is why this is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints, this is Christ's church. And I know that through the scriptures particularly the Book of Mormon i have been able to come closer to my savior and to feel of his love more. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God. I know God loves us and I am grateful to know that i am one of His daughters.

How I live my faith

I love being a missionary. It is hard work, but such a rewarding experience. I never knew how much fun learning about the gospel could be. Being a missionary has given me a lot of tools that i know i will need to be able to be a mother and a wife in the future. I am able to share what makes me happy wth those around me. The gospel is amazing! I have seen that being a member isnt just about going to church or serving a mission, but it is about being who i want to become. I have to live what i say i believe. People pay attention to who we are and what we do, I dont need to tell anyone who i am or what i believe, they can see it by the way that I act and the things that I do.
