Hi I'm Lauren

I grew up in NC and went to college at BYU. I love the outdoors and sports! Family is the best thing ever to me and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I LOVE going on adventures everyday! I feel most myself when I am being active in the outdoors. I enjoy doing everything from kayaking to rock-climbing. All of this is more fun when shared with friends and family. Being around others and seeing them happy, enjoying life brings me the most joy. I love learning and helping people reach their full potential; cooking is also one of my favorite things to do. Some of my favorite memories involve eating delicious food with those I care about. Right now, my biggest and best adventure is being a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I feel so blessed to represent my Savior Jesus Christ and let people know about his gospel. I have felt his love and now I get to share it with the wonderful people of Nevada. I AM SO EXCITED!!!

Why I am a Mormon

Through the challenges of life I've felt the constant love of my Savior and redeemer Christ. My faith and testimony in the truthfulness of the LDS church grew out of always feeling the love of Christ in my life. When I have been happy I've been able to rejoice with Christ and when I've been sad he has been there to comfort me. I have felt Christ love for me and all God's children through reading the scriptures and especially The Book of Mormon. When I read The Book of Mormon I feel a peace and reassurance that my life has a purpose and a plan; that God loves me; that I can be with my family forever; and that this is Christ true and living church restored in these latter-days through the prophet Joseph Smith. I have prayed to know if The Book of Mormon is the word of God; I have felt such a warmth of surety in my soul, mind and heart that I know this book to be true. I know God loves his children so much he sent Christ, his only begotten son, to atone for our sins so we could live with both of them again, forever. I know God doesn't want his children to be lost so Christ laid out a pattern of living for us to follow and they gave us scriptures to know the path to walk to return to them. I know the truth of Christ's gospel has been restored and is thriving. I know a prophet of God and 12 apostles leads Christ's church today just as in days of old. I am so blessed to be a missionary sharing what I know to be true & I'M A MORMON :D

How I live my faith

I am not perfect; but I do try to be better everyday. I want others to be able to see the image of Christ reflected in my countenance. From small and simple actions to big decisions I try to behave in a way God would be pleased to call me his daughter. I strive to help others know how much God and Christ love them through my interactions with them. Another main way I worship Heavenly Father and Christ is through being thankful and ever mindful of all they have given me. When I am in the outdoors, where I love to be, I am so aware of the majesty and power of God. Connecting with him through nature helps me realize how much I am loved for him to have made this beautiful Earth for me.
