Hi I'm Zac Olsen

I just graduated from high school and I am ready to start new adventures! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to spend time with my family! Quality family time has been a huge emphasis in my family for my entire life. Whether we are working in the yard, playing games, or just hanging out, we have a blast together. Playing board/card games is one of my favorite things to do with them, or anyone else. Some of my favorite games are Dominion, Nertz, and Settlers of Catan. Skateboarding, racquetball, and swimming are some of my favorite sports. I really enjoy being active and spending time outside. Other hobbies are rock-climbing, wake-boarding, and, a more chill activity, reading. I love to read fiction and fantasy books as well as books on self-improvement. I will begin serving a mission in the Guatemala, Guatemala City East Mission on September 16. I cannot wait to serve the Lord through full time missionary service.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this is Christ's church on the earth. I know that Joseph Smith restored this church in these latter days. Participating in His church brings happiness and joy into my life. When I am doing my best to live righteously and follow gospel teachings my life is better. I know that this gospel is a source of true and eternal joy. I am so grateful for the hope that is provided by this gospel. I know that even though I make mistakes I can be forgiven and eventually live with my loved ones forever in God's presence.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by not only attending church meetings each Sunday, but by living by the gospel's standards each and every day. I study the scriptures every day in an effort to draw closer to my Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ. I do my best to exemplify Christ through my actions. I hope that people will get to know Christ a little better through interacting with me and watching how I live my life.
