Hi I'm Lauren

I'm serving full-time in the England London South Mission. I love thinking ''outside the box''. I'm a redhead. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a daughter of God. I love Him and He loves me. He is constantly watching over and blessing me. And that brings me so much joy! :) I love being out and seeing all that God has created. He has instilled in me the passion of creating! I love being creative; with art, typography, photography, music, cooking, and countless other ways. I am a dreamer. My imagination is vivid and wild. And I intend to make those dreams become realities. :)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only church on the earth that has the Priesthood authority of God. I am a mormon because that Priesthood authority makes it possible to consistently learn of and follow Jesus Christ. Through the Priesthood, I was baptized by someone having authority of Jesus Christ. Each week, Priesthood holders bless and pass the sacrament so I can recommit to follow the Savior and start each week with a blank slate. Our living prophet and his apostles hold the Priesthood and have the authority to guide me by revelation from God. The Priesthood authority used in the temple provides a way for me to become closer to my father in heaven, and to have an eternal marriage. I am a mormon because this is all true and such a blessing.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to follow the example of Jesus Christ. I do my best to remember Him and do what He would do. That means serving, forgiving, and loving EVERYONE. Jesus Christ isn't selectively loving. He loves everyone, completely, all the time. No matter what they have or haven't done. I am trying to do the same. Genuinely serving, forgiving, and loving is my religion. Because Christ has done so much for me, I'm trying to pay it forward by serving as a missionary. I want other people to know that Christ is real- to know what He has done for each of us. I want others to know that there is one clear path that Christ has given us to follow. I'm here to invite people to come unto Christ by helping them receive the Restored Gospel, through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. I'm serving as a missionary because I know that Christ has a plan for us, and that plan brings the most complete peace into my life. I want others to enjoy that same kind of peace.
