Hi I'm Austin Olsen

I grew up in Huntington Utah, I'm a Missionary in wild and wonderful West Virginia , and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in rural Utah, and had the typical small-town upbringing which I love. As far back as I can remember I have had a love for sports, especially Basketball. I like to meet new people and to see their perspective on things. I love the outdoors, and alot of times that is where you will find me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the experiences I have had, and continue to have each day that testify to me of the truthfulness of this work.I know that TRUE peace and happiness only come through doing what is right. The price our savior Jesus Christ paid for us is real. The knowledge that I have that Jesus Christ knows me perfectly helps me to go through the tough times and makes the happy times that much better. I have had those experiences where the Holy Ghost has testified to me that I was in the right place at the right time, and those experiences have been some of the times when I have been able to feel his love the most. The gospel of Jesus Christ helps me strive to become the best person I possibly can be. That is what it's all about. It's not about where we have been, or where we are at right now, it's about where we are going and what we can become. The Atonement makes it so that if we choose to, we can be with our families for eternity. There is nothing else I want more than for those relationships to go on after this life.

How I live my faith

I am living my faith right now, through my service as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
