Hi I'm Lauren

I grew up in Utah. I love traveling, being with family, and am serving in the Germany, Berlin mission.

About Me

I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and am serving in the Germany, Berlin mission. Before my mission I attend a year a Brigham Yong University, studying History Education. I really enjoy having the opportunity to serve and travel, I have gone on a humanitarian trip every year for the past 3 years and traveled extensively with my parents. I am excited to see what the Lord has in-store for me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church but have had to be converted to the faith. I began gaining a strong testimony around junior high. I have had many experiences that have strengthened my faith and have shown me that God loves and cares for me. I know that Jesus Christ suffered for my pains and sins, so that if I will repent I can return to live with him and our Father in Heaven again. I love this gospel with all my heart, and know that it is true. I know Joseph Smith restored the fullness of the gospel to the Earth and that he saw God the Father and His son Jesus Christ when he was just 14. I know that we have a Living prophet on the Earth today and that he guides our church in the ways of righteousness.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I have been assigned to serve in the Germany Berlin mission. I am ready to go out and bring others this same joy that I have received in this gospel. I know it can change lives and I hope that by giving a year and a half of my life to the Lord, that He will help me to show others the path way back.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

There are may authors of the Book of Mormon, each book has it's own author or authors. Mormon, took all the past records of all the prophets who had lived in the America's and compiled them together. His son Moroni, who was the last Nephite, kept the records safe until he died. Thousands of years later Joseph Smith then took that work that Mormon had compiled and translated it to the English language. Show more Show less

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

We do not worship Joseph Smith, we respect him and recognize him as a prophet called of God to restore The Lord's true gospel to the Earth. We worship God the Eternal Father and His son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
