Hi I'm Alicia Marie Larsen

I'm one of the coolest people I know! ... but that's because I'm from a really small town in Idaho :)

About Me

I am just your average boring small town girl... living in a lonely world... who took the midnight train going anywhere... Okay that not true, I'm not really lonely (for the most part), and I never got on a midnight train to anywhere, BUT I did fill out mission papers which is almost just as crazy boarding some random train that takes you to anywhere! I have been called to serve in the México Tuxtla Gutiérrez Mission! Which is really funny because I actually didn't do so hot last semester in my spanish class (I'm also a BYUI student *woot, woot*)... which makes me wonder if God was paying attention last semester... or if I should have been the one paying attention in spanish... Either way, I guess He believes I can learn spanish so I guess I can! :)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon (or LDS as some "Mormons" prefer it ;)) because I have personally asked the Father in His son Jesus Christ's name if this was the true church. Do you want to know what the answer I got was? No. THIS IS THE TRUE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST. Everyday I can feel the love of the Father, and of His son, and I know that it is their love because I want to show everyone just how loved they are as well, and I know that it is through this gospel that a person will feel just how much their Father, and older brother, Jesus Christ, loves them.

How I live my faith

How I live my faith is by waking up and living! Everything in this crazy world is testifying of our Heavenly Father and the plan he has for us, his children! But the weird thing is, you can't see it unless your looking, and what I've found helps me see that is daily prayer and scripture study! Talking to Heavenly Father is always the right way to go when wanting to develop a knowledge of what His plan is for you and what helps Him answer is the scriptures! Especially the Book of Mormon! If you haven't read this book, I HIGHLY suggest it! You don't even have to be a Mormon to get your hands on one of them! Any Missionaries in your area would be more than happy to give you one or (if your a little timid of missionaries because they can get a little overzealous) go to either the nearest Desert Book or DI and they are bound to have a copy there (they are roughly $4 at Desert Book and at DI--because they are used-- they are FREE). So try it out! But make sure you don't forget to include to constant prayer while reading it, otherwise I can't promise that it will do much for you. But if you team up daily personal prayer (And I mean PERSONAL! You are talking to the person that loves you more than the whole wide world (which is why He wants you to learn what's beyond this world), so don't be afraid to tell him how you feel and what you want) and study of the Book of Mormon I can promise that there will be a new light in your life that has the power to bring you the peace and happiness you are searching for.
