Hi I'm Lauren

I am a lover of good books, spontaneous adventures and all things travel, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student with a passion for current events, writing and discovering random facts, and I enjoy all things out-of-doors. I love running and all kinds of books and pie, but my primary passion is for travel. Nothing is more exciting to me than the prospect of going to a new place. There is a whole world out there, and I want to see it all!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have prayed to know if this is the true church of God, and have gotten a resounding yes. I have put its teachings to the test time and again, and always does it prove to be the only true source of lasting peace and happiness. I am a Mormon because I have a testimony that the Book of Mormon is the true word of God, and that the truthfulness of His gospel has been restored by the prophet Joseph Smith. I am a Mormon because I know that this is the church of my Heavenly Father, whom I love and endeavor to follow.

How I live my faith

I live my faith on a day to day basis. Sometimes in looking from where you are to where you want to go, all you can see is the distance in between. However, instead of getting bogged down in the excess mileage, I try to focus on my journey step-by-step. Living the gospel comes down to the decisions we make day to day, moment to moment. With that perspective then, it is easier to view each day as its own challenge, as a chance to prove and improve what I know through my actions and attitudes. Nobody is perfect, but that doesn't mean that we shouldn't try each day to be a little better than the last. Life is a process.
