Hi I'm Larissa

I grew up in Utah. I am a student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to spend time with family and friends. I enjoy hiking and exploring the great outdoors. I love to craft! I crochet, sew, and scrapbook. I enjoy sketching, drawing, painting, and writing. I am working on my associate of science.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up Mormon, and I always enjoyed going to church. But, I think everyone wonders, at some point in their lives, what their purpose is. That popular question 'why am I here?' is one that I found myself asking as a teen. In trying to discover who I was I started neglecting my scripture study. I wasn't happy anymore. After having a really good lesson in church, I started reading my scriptures again. I felt that happiness come back into my life. As I continued to read and pray everyday, and really listen to my youth leaders at church I found that the gospel not only made me happy, it also answered my questions and gave me direction. Now I know that God loves me and wants the best for me, by following the guidance he gives me through the scriptures and church leaders I find answers to questions like "what is my purpose here?". I am happy and feel great peace knowing that God is in control and can help me through the challenges of life.

How I live my faith

I served in my church as a librarian. I helped the other members by finding pictures, making copies, etc. The library is there to help teachers have what they need to teach effectively, and I was there to make sure they can find those resources. I am currently serving as a missionary in Germany.
