Hi I'm Matthew Larsen

I was raised in California. I love learning, I love running, I love eating mexican, I love hiking and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I love running, playing soccer, reading, hanging with friends, and trying new things. I am on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am serving in the Chile Santiago North Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the Book of Mormon is true. I have read it all and I have a testimony that Christ lives. I was born into the church. I love the gospel. I have gained these precious testimonies because of trying to get as close to God as I can. There's nothing more sweet than feeling the love of God in your life. It's a wonderful experience. And that is why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an "example of the believers" I go to church every Sunday, to seminary in the morning during the week, to youth group whenever I can, and to any other church meeting. I also live my faith by serving a mission for Jesus Christ for two years. In this I consecrate two years of my life and pay to serve a mission.

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

Matthew Larsen
Some blessings that I have received from the Holy Ghost are answers to my questions, peace to my mind, and guidence as I travel through this life. I know that the Holy Ghost bares testimony to our souls of things of God like if the Book of Mormon is true. If Joseph Smith really was a prophet and if he really did translate the Book of Mormon form gold plates. How can we receive these blessings? Well all we need to do is ask. God is our father and loves us and just like any father He wants to bless us but he won't interfere in our lives unless we ask Him to. He knows how to teach us so that we can grow and become like Him. And that is through personal experince which means we need to ask Him for guidence and how can He guide us? By the Holy Ghost. Ask and ye shall receive, knock and it shall be opened unto you. Show more Show less
