Hi I'm Lauren Partridge

I'm a starving college student. I love my family, my friends, music, and naps. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just got called on a mission to Eugene, Oregon, and I report in January. I'm excited to live in the beautiful state of Oregon and meet the people there. I play five instruments (harp, guitar, cello, string bass, and piano), I am learning the mandolin and the ukulele, and I love to sing. I have three siblings and a mom and dad, and I love them a LOT. I'm also really bad at "about me" sections.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know it is true and this gospel brings me happiness. Yes, I was born into this faith, and I grew up learning Mormon teachings. But I have definitely grown to know it for myself through prayer, scripture study, church and temple attendance, and personal inspiration from Heavenly Father. He loves each of us very much, and I feel this love every day in the form of my wonderful friends and family, the feelings of the Spirit, and the small blessings I notice in my day-to-day life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be a good friend and example to those around me. I also am going to be serving a mission soon, which will help me live my faith and show it openly 24/7 for 18 months.
