Hi I'm Loren Israelsen

I'm a Mormon, and I love it!

About Me

I am a student studying to become a dentist. I love being outdoors and going mountain biking or hiking with friends and family. I enjoy being active, speaking Thai, country swing dancing, and learning new things.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have seen the good things that this religion has done for my life. It has given me purpose and helped me to understand what I need to do to accomplishment my purpose in life. I'm a Mormon because of the truths that are taught that help me to understand that I can live with my family forever, not just in this life, but after this life as well. Family is a very important part of my life right now and it brings me happiness to be with them and to know that marriage and family is an eternal principle.

How I live my faith

I live a busy life, but I have found that life is easier when I live my faith. I try hard to consistently keep my faith a part of my every day life by reading and studying scriptures and saying prayers to my Heavenly Father. I also try to look for ways to help those around me, Christ taught to love others and if I try to remember that I feel that it helps me to see others needs. Whether it's something as simple as holding a door for someone as they follow behind you, or taking time to listen to a friend that needs to talk. When I try to help others I feel the happiness that it brings.
