Hi I'm Jay M. Larsen

I grew up in Idaho, attended Utah State University, then moved to Las Vegas, Nv. to work. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am retired after over 40 years working in the IT field. I have been married for 47 years to my lovely wife and am a father of two and grandfather of 5. Love to spend time with my wife, children, and grandchildren. Family is really important to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true and was restored to the earth by Jesus Christ through the prophet Joseph Smith. I have read the Book of Mormon many times and know it is true and another testament of Jesus Christ. I know that Jesus is the Christ and through his atonement, we have the opportunity to live with him again as families if we are faithful, live the commandments and keep the covenants we have made. I know that the Church of Jesus of Latter-day Saints is led by a prophet today who receives revelation for the Church. I am a Mormon because of the above knowledge and because the Church brings me peace and happiness.

How I live my faith

My wife and I have been serving in the church by helping church members and non church member with employment needs. We hold monthly employment networking meeting for those needing employment. Physical needs go hand in hand with spiritual needs. Prior to that my wife and I taught a class on strengthening marriage.
