Hi I'm Larris S. Olsen

I was raised a Mormon in Utah and am now an elementary school teacher in Idaho.

About Me

I am a father of 5 grown children with one grandchild. I enjoy watching many sporting activities mostly from my own home. I also like polishing rocks. I teach first grade at a local elementary school. I spent a mission in Germany many many years ago.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church and have always tried to followits teachings. I remember as a young boy being influenced by my older brothers missionary service and my mother's prayers. My mission helped shape my life in many ways. I have had prayers answered and a witness given to me by the spirit that what I have been taught is true. I am not always successful in living the gospel but I know that it is the correct path.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving in the Sunday School organization of my ward. I enjoy the opportunities to teach when I can and also watching the others teach. I visit families to teach them and to help with their needs. I try to live the best I can and serve as I am asked.
