Hi I'm Larry

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Salt Lake City, UT but now live in Chicago, IL

About Me

I am a 38 and am a father of 2 girls and 3 boys ages 4 to 12. I love playing basketball, riding bikes and watching movies with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints teaches you to be the best you can be and to follow the example of our Savior, Jesus Christ. I am also a member because of the kind people that surround me each week at church. It is amazing to see the strong bonds that form between you and others as you all strive to live the commandments of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Whenever I am in need I know that I can find the help I need from someone in the church. They are selfless, loving and sincere followers of Christ.

How I live my faith

I try each day to treat others around me as Jesus Christ would if he were here. I do this by smiling a lot and trying to make others feel comfortable around me. In my dress and actions I try to speak as Jesus Christ would by not swearing or saying rude things about others. When I see others in need I try to offer a helping hand in simple ways like opening a door for someone will full hands or with small children or by smiling at someone who may be lonely or having a bad day.

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

I believe that God is the literal father of my spirit and that he has a body of flesh and bones. I know that he loves me and answers my prayers. Show more Show less
