Hi I'm Lauren

I grew up in Houston Texas. I love both watching plays and musicals and working backstage in technical theatre. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music. It has always been an important part of my life. What I listen to ranges from clasical to hard rock. I love theatre. When I was young my father would take me to see musicals and I fell in love with them. When I entered high school I took Technical Theatre all four years and it became a very important part of my life. I believe it is a truly beautiful art form and allows performers, backstage crew, and audience members alike to be benefited by its expression and artistry. I love to read. I love how reading a good book can transport you to a new world. My favorite is fantasy. I also love movies. I think they are an art form just like theatre and books are and have that same ability to transport you anywhere.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know it is Christ's church on the earth today. I know that for many reasons but the biggest being because of the happiness it brings. As I live its teaching and apply its principle to my life, it brings a joy that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. I have seen too many miracle and had too many prayers answered for me ever be able to deny it's truthfulness. I have a great desire to serve God and help other people find the same happiness I have found in this Gospel. That is why I wanted to serve a mission. Because of this church, I know God loves me. Knowing that simple truth has blessed my life immensely and I need to share it with other people s they too can find peace and comfort through the many challenges of this life as i have.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to live as Christ did. Though I know i fall short of his perfection, I try and show Gods love to everyone I meet through kindness and service. I have had many opportunities to serve in my community through school and church and have found great joy in doing so. I live my faith by never lowering my standards for anyone or anything. The Lord said, "If you love me, keep my commandments." I believe that is true and strive every day to keep His commandments to show my love and gratitude to the Savior. I also live my faith in my decision to serve a full time mission for this church. I know that it is something God wants me to do and I am eager to do it.
