Hi I'm Lauren Ashley Olsen

I grew up in Utah and Nevada. I love music, volleyball, and soccer. And, I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am absolutely in love music! I've played the oboe now for seven years and have been in many orchestras. When I come back from my mission, I want to pursue music and become a professional. I also love to play volleyball, soccer, run, and travel. I think it's amazing to learn knew things and to experience new cultures and lives.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon. I know that God loves me and He wants me to return to him. I know that Jesus Christ is my only way home to my Father in Heaven. I believe that God is good, compassionate, and loves all of us. I also know that I make mistakes, because I am not perfect; but, through Christ we can repent and become clean again. I've chosen to be a member of His church because I know that he is the only way to true happiness and Eternal Life. This is Christ's gospel and without Him I am lost and cannot be saved. He is Eternal, He is true, and He is the light in this world of confusion.

How I live my faith

As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I have been called to serve Him. I have been able to be a leader among my peers as a president, and a counselor. I have helped with Church activities, fundraisers, and service projects. I have also have had the opportunity to be a counselor for a Special Needs Mutual. Where I went to activities every Thursday Night and was able to spend time with kids in my community.
