Hi I'm Cliff

Currently serving a mission in Brazil! I laugh like its my job. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Heyyo! I was born in California, but live in Ohio now! I'm currently serving a mission in Brazil. I love any sport that is competitive so... all of them! I have always loved swimming and have devoted a lot of time to it and accomplished a lot through effort. I will be attended Brigham Young University after my mission and majoring in business management.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been raised as a Mormon my whole life, but being the only one in my school makes me realize what a blessing it is to know God's eternal plan for me. He has given us agency to choose good or evil. He placed us on Earth so we could learn and grow. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. Through fervent prayer and scripture study, Heavenly Father has made known unto me that it IS true. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ that solidifies my faith and knowledge that this church is true. Through the Plan of Salvation that our Heavenly Father has laid out for us, we can return to His presence again and live with our families forever in happiness! My favorite scripture is Helaman 5 verse 12. It promises us that when we build our foundation on Christ we cannot be brought down by the temptations that surround us. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by showing love towards others and towards my Heavenly Father. I can show my love for Him through my choices and obedience to His commandments. We are set free and enjoy happiness when we are righteous. We have the freedom to make choices, but we cannot choose the consequences. Through the power of repentance though, we can be forgiven of our sins. Jesus Christ, our Savior, suffered and atoned for all of the pains and sins of everyone who has lived, is living, and will live in this world. Through this sacrifice, it is possible for us to repent and be forgiven of our sins. I strive to become a better person every day and to help others know the fulness of this gospel. I hope all of those who read this will pray to Heavenly Father earnestly and ask if this Church is true. If you do, I have no doubt in my mind He will make known unto you that this is one and only true church upon the face of the earth. I'm Cliff Larsen, and I'm a Mormon.
