Hi I'm Zack Olsen

I was born in Alabama and spent the last 13 years of my life in Idaho. I made baby quilts for children in need.

About Me

I just turned 18 this March and am pumped to be going on my mission. My greatest achievement so far has to be graduating High school with my Associates degree. People usually say I'm the calmest person that they have ever met. I hope to one day be a chemical engineer and maybe work with solar energy.

Why I am a Mormon

I read the Book of Mormon and figured out it was true. I want to help others and serve God. I also have a testimony that the church is lead by a person called of God to lead it.

How I live my faith

I always share my values with those that ask. I have never turned down assignments and usually called on when others are incapable of fulfilling theirs. I also try and teach doctrines to my friends, even if they don't listen. I work my hardest to live up to being able to say I'm a member of this wonderful church.

Why is self-reliance important to Mormons? Why do Mormons talk about emergency preparedness?

Zack Olsen
It important to be self reliant so that you and the people you care about can be safe in case of emergency. We can help others that way too. Show more Show less
