Hi I'm Lauren Yance

I'm adventurous and quirky. I love to dance and eat candy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the second of five children. I was born in Hawaii, and spent most of my childhood in south Alabama until moving to Texas just before my twelfth birthday. I began dancing when I was a toddler and by the time I was 7 years old, I knew that I wanted to someday have a studio of my own. After graduating high school, I moved to Utah, where I studied dance education and business management at UVU. I am currently serving as a full-time missionary in the Florida Orlando Mission! I LOVE being a missionary and getting a front-row seat to seeing lives change all because of people's love and faith in Jesus Christ, our Savior.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints. Nothing could ever bring be greater happiness. Having a knowledge and understanding of Heavenly Father's love for me comes from my membership in the church. His perfect plan for all of His children gives me hope for the future- no matter what harsh winds blow my way, I can always be sure that I will stand firm because He is on my side.

How I live my faith

I strive to be the best person I can be every day. It's a personal goal of mine to give at least one random compliment to one stranger every day. I smile, and offer help when I see the need. I try to be as optimistic as possible, because attitude truly is contagious!
