Hi I'm Damien Larson

I sing, play guitar, and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. . And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music. I sing and play the guitar as much as possible. A song is a prayer and a testimony that can really affect people. I've also played a lot of sports in my life: football, baseball, wrestling and swimming. I love being involved and making friends through different activities. Spending time with my family is a big deal to me, they're my best friends. I go swimming and hang out with them at every opportunity I get!

Why I am a Mormon

The reason I have chosen to be a member of this church is because God sent his Son to establish his church and to save us from death and sin. Over time, people changed His church so our Heavenly Father called a prophet to re-establish it with all the truth it had originally. So really, I'm a Mormon because this is the true church of Jesus Christ. I've studied and prayed about it multiple times and every time I get the same answer that-yes, this is true. And I know this is the same answer as a lot of people, but when I live the gospel and keep the commandments I'm happier. When I read the Book of Mormon, I'm happier. Rules and books just don't make people happy unless they're God's rules and books! So I know for myself that this is real, and I want everyone that reads this to not take my word for it, but do the same thing I did: read, pray, study it out in your mind, and keep God's commandments. Then He will bless you for it.

How I live my faith

People can tell the difference between someone being fake or genuine. People really can see through what you say and know your intentions. I live my faith by being real with people. I try my best to see people how God sees them and love them how God loves them. When I've done this, I've been able to help people change their lives. I've seen people become so much happier in a matter of days and weeks! I live my faith by finding people that are interested in finding truth. I share with them what I know, and help them strengthen their faith in Christ. Another big way I live my faith is with my family. Being the oldest sibling, I have a big responsibility to be an example. I'm trying to the best things, not just good things, so my little brothers and sister will have a bigger reason to live right. I try to do only things that will make my Heavenly Father, family, and friends proud. I know I'm not perfect, but I live my faith as much as possible. Its the least I could do.
