Hi I'm Lauren

I love theatre. I have been in many musicals and plays, but Shakespeare is my favorite. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love hiking, and can be found up in the beautiful Utah mountains most summer days. I love animals, and have a dog and a cat. I'm going to college for Theatre Education, and am almost always memorizing a scene or monologue to perform. I am very close with my family, especially my mom. In my free time, I am usually watching a classic film with my brother.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this church brings me so much happiness. I am given the opportunity to repent of my sins and be clean, which is such a joyful feeling. This is a church centered around family, which I love because my family are my best friends. Because of the blessing of temple sealing, I have the knowledge that I can be with my family even after death, which brings me so much joy and happiness. I love learning about Jesus Christ, and His life. Because this is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, we focus on Christ and His teachings, which helps me to find happiness through gratitude, service, and loving others. I know that my Father in Heaven loves me and is aware of me, which I have come to know through this church. This provides me comfort, both in times of crisis and in my everyday life. I know that the Book of Mormon is a truly inspired book given to us by God, and I'm so grateful for the truths it provides me. I love this church because it has helped me be happier than I could have possibly been all on my own.

How I live my faith

I teach a primary class of 4 and 5 year olds. We do fun activities each Sunday to learn basic principles of the gospel. I attend institute religion classes at my college, which are really enjoyable. I sing in an institute choir, where we sing LDS Hymns, American religious folk songs,and other religious songs. Singing is my favorite way of sharing how I feel about the gospel, whether it's at the start of a meeting or in a big group or choir.

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

The Old Testament is full of prophecies of the birth of Jesus Christ. The New Testament is a witness of the life of Jesus Christ, who is the center of our gospel. Many truths taught about in the Bible are also taught about in The Book of Mormon. Show more Show less
