Hi I'm Lauren

I grew up in Hawaii. I am preparing to serve a mission. I am a Mormon and I am happy because of it.

About Me

I love playing guitar. I love to teach. I am going to be a nurse one day; currently working as a nursing assistant. I'm preparing to serve a mission, so I'm not in school right now, but I have been attending a university. I am the youngest child in my family. I enjoy listening to music, especially fun soundtrack music or Phantom of the Opera style. I just love music that is uplifting!

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I love it! I have tested out the things I was taught to see for myself if it really is true. This gospel is the best part of my life. It helps me to become more like Jesus Christ. I have received countless confirmations of the truthfulness of the gospel by the power of the Holy Ghost. I always say, if you don't know or aren't sure if it's true, what is so bad about finding out for yourself? Go find out. Ask the missionaries, ask the people that attend and are members. There is no harm in finding answers. Just like anything else you would want an answer for, you would go and find out. I'm a Mormon because I know it's true. It's real. It is the path that leads to God. And I want to be on that path. No other thing has brought me greater joy and happiness than being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I have been a primary teacher for the children in church. I enjoyed doing that because children truly are the Kingdom of God. I've learned more from children than I have anywhere else. I love being a visiting teacher and getting to know other people. I enjoy visiting and sharing gospel truths with others. Not only that, I love keeping in touch and becoming friends with those I visit teach. I don't hide that I am a Mormon. I want the best for others so I will tell them what I've been up to and what is coming up for me in church. I know the gospel of Jesus Christ is the best thing for everyone and I love sharing it with them.

Are Mormons Christians?

Of course we are Christians. The name "Jesus Christ" is in the very title of this church. This church is in all reality His church. He leads and guides it. We worship Him as our Leader, King, Savior and Redeemer. Mormon is a nickname people in olden days have given us that has stuck to this day. But wouldn't it be Mormon's church if his name was in the title? But it's not. The real name of this church is "The Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-Day Saints" therefore this church is Christ's church, which means we are indeed Christians. Show more Show less
