Hi I'm Lauren Hillary Ockey

I'm a missionary in Argentina. Lover of traveling, surfing, and meeting new people. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I've lived in five different states. I'm a student at BYU Hawaii studying Intercultural Peacebuilding. I'm a lover of traveling. I spent a summer in Thailand doing humanitarian work, and it changed my view of the world forever. I learned that happiness has nothing to do with how much you have. I believe that life truly is about learning to love and being filled with the spirit of serving others. I am currently serving a mission in the Argentina Buenos Aires South mission and want to apply that to my mission. I believe that family is the most important thing in this world. I believe that happiness is everywhere, we just have to find it in small things daily.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel of Jesus Christ gives me happiness the world can not offer. As I pray to my heavenly father each day, I can feel of his love and I know that he is listening. I can feel the savior's love in my life as I repent of my mistakes and take the sacrament each sunday. The better I have come to understand the life of the Savior, the more I have been able to understand the importance of love and service in my life. I know that when I serve others thats when I feel the most joy. I know that only positive and good things come out of living the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It gives me so much hope and peace. Nothing feels more right.

How I live my faith

By living a life deeply committed to God and keeping his commandments. By seeing others as God sees them. I know I have a lot to work on, but I know what makes me happiest in life is seeing myself grow in love towards others. I live this gospel by having faith that I know my mission is an inspired call, and praying for those out there who are seeking the joy which this gospel brings!
