Hi I'm Lauren

I grew up in Southern California. I love serving the Lord and sharing the gospel of Christ. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My hobbies include going to the beach, drawing, painting, playing the piano, hiking, photography, going to Disneyland and having fun with family and friends. I am the oldest of 4 children in my family and live in the same area as most of my cousins. I recently graduated from high school and I am called to serve in the Florida Jacksonville mission. Upon return from my mission, I plan on attending BYU- Idaho for college.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised in a wonderful family that has taught me the gospel my entire life. Throughout my teenage years, I have developed a knowledge on my own that what I have been taught us true. I have read the Book of Mormon multiple times and have felt its power and truthfulness. I know that this is the true church on the earth today. The gospel has brought be so much peace, comfort, happiness and knowledge in my life and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. I know that Jesus Christ lives, and that He died so that we may all return to live with our Father in Heaven. I know that Christ has felt every pain, sorrow or temptation that we feel, and because of that, we are never alone. I do not know where I would be or what my life would be like without the gospel.

How I live my faith

Recently, I have had the opportunity to work a ton with the youth in my community, especially the young women. I helped plan events, teach and serve. Now, I am preparing to leave on a full time mission to Florida to share the happiness that the gospel brings and to bring others closer to Christ.
