My name is Lauren I''''''''''''''''m 19 years old. I was born and raised in Henderson, NV. October 24, 2009 is a day I will never forget. I was saved by the grace of God. He flipped my world upside down or right side up! My life was changed forever! I don''''''''''''''''t have the words to express the love and gratitude I have for my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! God is the author of Salvation. For 18 years of my life I tried to fill the void inside of me. The void was so profound it felt as if I was hollow. It was an emptiness I thought one day may be filled with the love of a husband and kids. The day I knew that I knew that I knew there was a God and that He loved me and was with me, listening to me, wanting to help me the void inside me was filled and a weight was lifted from me forever. Making it known to me that the void was my souls desperate need for a relationship with God. Before I was saved, saying I was lost and broken is an understatement. As far as I was from God, growing up knowing nothing of Him or His Son, He was near to me. Watching over me and protecting me, all the days of my life. Since Ive been saved, God has completely transformed me. I''''''''''''''''m finding my identity in Christ. Im becoming the person God designed me to be. He is my Creator, the author of my life, He set this path before me and is in control of everything! My part is to be obedient and follow Him. Im amazed by His wondrous works! He is so incredibly good to me! I dont have the words to express the holiness, the grace, the faithfulness, the love, the kindness, the beauty, the perfection, the understanding..I could go on lol.. that has been shown to me! I will forever be grateful. PRAISE THE LORD!
