Hi I'm Garrett Olsen

I was born and raised in Utah. I am the oldest out of eleven kids. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love to write and draw. My favorite sport that I have always played, competitive or not. I will be attending college after serving my mission. In high school I was a percussionist, that performed in the plays our drama department set up. I was in the front ensemble for marching band for a year, and then the battery for drum-line for two years; which we took state

Why I am a Mormon

Well I was born into the church, and I always liked what they taught me; encouraging me to do good. One day some of my friend were talking about the Book of Mormon. That night I realized I had never read the book and so how could I know that it was true. I determined to read it and ask if it was true. When I had finished reading it I went down on my knees in prayer to ask my Heavenly Father if it was true, just how I was always taught when I was younger. What I got was this great warm burning in my chest that was comforting. It didn't hurt or worry me; as I knew that it was the Holy Ghost and was testifying that the Book of Mormon is true. After that every time that I do something that I should or learn something that is true that feeling comes back to confirm that it is the right thing to do or the truth.

How I live my faith

I am called to home teach two families. I have also been called to serve as a senior primary teacher, teaching the nine to ten year-old's.
