Hi I'm Bryn Larsen

I love flowers and stripes and Lord of the Rings. I believe that dancers are God's athletes. I'm #Mormon4ever

About Me

I'm a student at Brigham Young University, where I'm studying nursing, social work, and special ed. I'm currently taking off a year and a half so I can be a missionary here in southeast Texas! Working as a nurse and now serving as a missionary has taught me to love. I never knew my heart had this capacity to absolutely LOVE and adore so many people, but God has made it possible! This gospel has added an inexplicable amount of happiness and peace to my life, and I want nothing more than to share it with those I serve and love here in the Great State of Texas.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church, but I've come to develop my own testimony of it's truthfulness. Something that has always helped me is consciously looking for the Lord's hand in my day-to-day life. I did this even when I was really little, so I attributed the beautiful things in life--from the great and marvelous to the small and simple--to the Lord and His love for me, at a very young age. Now I'm 20, and now I don't always have to think to myself, 'That is the Lord's hand', now I just know it and it's indisputable in my mind. My mom, however, is a convert so I've had the unique opportunity to grow up with her perspective and insight on growing up outside the church, finding it, then believing and converting to it's truthfulness.

How I live my faith

I've grown up serving in my church, whether it was writing letters to missionaries for Primary activities, shoveling snow and caroling to ward widows for Young Womens, serving as Young Womens class Presidents at different points, teaching the 5-year-olds Primary class, or being a Visiting Teacher and ward pianist in my campus student ward, I've had a great and unique opportunity to be "my brother's keeper" from a young age. Now I'M the missionary receiving letters from the Primary! And nothing feels better.
