Her beauty is clearly seen in these pictures. She's stunning. But there's a beauty that's rooted deeper inside of her. Lauren's heart is full of love and passion and it gushes out of her. She's mature beyond her age, kind and tenderhearted, and most importantly, she loves Christ. She has a desire to grow and change and become more like Him. I've always looked up to her, for as long as I can remember. The older looking up to the younger seems a little backward, but it's true. I love this girl so much and am so proud to see who she is and is becoming.
