Hi I'm Lauren Newlin

I grew up in both sides of the United States, I attend BYU-Idaho, and I am a Mormon!

About Me

I have been raised in this church. I attend a church university to obtain my degree in Elementary Education. I love to read anything fiction! I love horses and used to compete hunter/jumper with my barn team. I love in the United states the south and want to live there again after college. I have never been out of the United States before but want to travel and see the world really bad! I am currently serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints!

Why I am a Mormon

I am very grateful to be the first child born and raised in this gospel. Since I was small I knew that this church is true. I would say the first time I really knew for myself that it is true is when I read the whole Book of Mormon through for the first time. When I got to the end I prayed and asked if it was true. The filling I got can not be described or faked. I know that the answer that I received without a shadow of a doubt is that the church is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by knowing for myself what this church teaches is true. I am a firm believer that if you so not know something is really true, why are you really there? I live my faith by reading the Book of Mormon every night as it helps me understand the Bible more. I live my faith by knowing that there is a modern day prophet on this earth that communicates with Christ to help run Christ`s church. I live my faith by knowing that this church is really the true church on Earth today.
