Hi I'm Tyler Larsen

I like to golf. I love to learn about math and science. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy being active by hiking, swimming, running, golfing, and playing basketball and tennis. One of my favorite hobbies is computer programming. I love math and science, and I'm excited to attend Brigham Young University in order to learn more about computer science. I'm currently serving a 2 year church mission in Oklahoma City and I couldn't be more happy!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a Mormon and I always believed that the church was true. When I was 11 years old, my baby brother Wyatt passed away at 5 and a half months old. Although it was the hardest challenge I have ever faced, it also strengthened my testimony of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The spirit testified to me and my family that we will be with Wyatt again someday. Families can be together forever and this eternal truth is why I am a Mormon. I wouldn't trade the happiness and peace that comes from this gospel for anything.

How I live my faith

I am living my faith by serving a 2 year church service mission in Oklahoma City. Sharing the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ is very important to me because I want others to receive the blessings that come from it. As a missionary, I devote all my time, talents, and energy to serving the Lord and those around me. Serving others is so rewarding and Christ was the perfect example of service. Wherever he went, he focused on others and how he could bless them. No matter what happens in life, we can always serve those around us and receive the joy that comes from it.
