Hi I'm Lauren

I grew up in Southern California, I love to travel, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from an awesome family: I'm the second oldest of seven kids and have two incredible parents. As a family, we like to travel, be outside, watch movies together, and quote movies together. Right now I'm a college student studying accounting and French. I have lived in France and New Caledonia.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was twelve, I felt the pure love of Jesus Christ clearly for the first time. Despite being young, I knew that what I felt was real and that I could never deny it. I have chosen to follow Jesus Christ and God because by doing so, I am always filled with that pure love and happiness. I have experienced sorrow and losses of loved ones but what has always remained constant is the knowledge that I have that Jesus Christ and God love me so much.

How I live my faith

I have always had a deep love and appreciation for serving and for those who serve. In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I had the privilege of working with other teenagers and plan events for our entire city. In college and then later on when I was living in New Caledonia, I helped the women of my community to learn important skills about how they can improve their own lives and the lives of those around them. These experiences have shaped me into who I am today and continue to bless me with pure happiness.
