Hi I'm Lauren

I grew up in a small town in Arizona. I love family and I love to run. I'm a Mormon- I know it, I live it, I love it!

About Me

I am currently attending college and I am studying Exercise Science. I am adventurous, and it is my dream to travel the world! Some of my hobbies include: running, pilates, music, laughing, baking, swimming, and many more!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the gospel, and because of that I always lived in a spiritual setting and was constantly taught that the church was true. Although I was always taught this, I knew that if I were to continue on in this faith, I needed to gain a testimony of my own, a testimony that was independent of my parents'. I read the Book of Mormon several times, and spent many hours praying and thinking about the words that were written. I attended seminary, and felt the spirit so strongly there. As I prayed, I learned through the power of the Holy Ghost that this is the true gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to fulfill all that the Lord has asked me to do. I visit with other women in my group every month and give them a spiritual thought, as well as checking up on them and asking how their lives are going. I faithfully attend my church meetings and try to follow along with the lessons given there. I show my support to others who have been called to serve. I also try to attend the temple as often as possible and work on family history work, even though I am new at it and sometimes am unsure of what I am doing. I know that even the little things I do can help the work progress!

How do I become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church)?
