Hi I'm Lauren

I'm from Chicago. I am a college student. I love the outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a junior in college right now studying health science. I love to be outdoors. Hiking, camping and paddle boarding are some of my favorite things to do. I am obsessed with animals. I have two older brothers and a mom and dad who are all active in the church.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member because when I follow these teachings I can feel Heavenly Fathers love for me. I know that He is aware of us and all of our needs. He hears our prayers and answers them in different ways. I know that Jesus Christ died for us so that we may return to Him and our Father in Heaven. This great sacrifice makes me want to be a better person so that I can be reunited with Him someday. We are all sons and daughters of God.

How I live my faith

In my church I teach young children the basics of our gospel. Teaching these kids has made me realize how important this church will be to them in the future. Even though I teach them, sometimes I find them teaching me. Their testimonies are so strong and they are an inspiration to me.
