After experiencing bullying as a child, Lauren struggled with her self-worth. Those struggles followed her to college at UNL. Having played soccer since the age of 4, a friend of Lauren’s on the soccer team encouraged her to try out, and she made the team! Making the team gave Lauren a great sense of accomplishment but deep down she still struggled with her value and purpose. Some girls on the soccer team invited Lauren to join them at the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Lauren soon discovered that as a child of God’s she could place her full identity in Him- and that no amount of anxiety or fear could take away form the fact that in God’s eyes she’s worth something special.
