Hi I'm Larissa

I love helping people, and I am going to school to become a nurse and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy soccer, basketball, volleyball and all sports in general. I received my medical CNA (certified Nurses assistant) in high school. I played soccer in high school and played basketball and volleyball for fun. I go to Brigham Young University in Idaho where I want to major in Nursing. I love music and I used to play the saxophone in middle school. I love to help others and just want to make people happy.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon! I know this church is true, I have seen the impact and joy it has made on other peoples lives. I am grateful for families whose marriage remains past death into forever. People ask me what makes who I am.. my happy, joyful, forgiving, and bright uplifting personality. My answer, I follow Christs example, not his rules. His church is a choice to live as righteous as Christ would not a punishment. Our father in heaven and our brother Jesus Christ want us to be happy! And so by praying, avoiding drugs, alcohol, and smoking I will be the best person I can be. But it isn't just about the physical things; it also has to do with spiritual and emotional. Being Mormon allows me to have happiness and to share that joy with people whose paths I cross, whether it be once, or every day. I am Mormon not because I am forced or just plain weird. But because I want to live in heaven one day, and have all the joy possible.

How I live my faith

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. In this church we have callings, (they are not jobs because we are not paid nor forced) my calling is to bring joy and happiness to those who have never truly felt it or have lost those feelings. I am a teacher to all those around me, I am an example to those I talk to, see, or even if they just see me. I do a monthly check up on the women in my church to make sure they are doing okay, sometimes a visit, other times just a phone call, but I know it means something, because I choose to do it. I go to church every Sunday and feel a warm embrace by those around me. I go to get-togethers quite often to make new friends and strengthen old ones.
