Hi I'm Eli Larsen

I love to run swim and bike. I am currently studying Chemical Engineering at BYU. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a BYU student majoring in chemical engineering. I love to run, bike, hike, swim, to be outdoors and to be fit. I love math and science particularly chemistry. I love to laugh and to make others laugh. I have been called to serve in the Adriatic South Mission speaking Albanian and I am super thrilled for this opportunity to share the gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to wonderful parents who are both members of the church and was raised and taught the gospel from a young age. I am a Mormon because I have felt the spirit testify truths and I have seen the Lord's hand influencing and blessing me in my life. I am a Mormon because "I know that He [God] loveth his children; nevertheless, I do not know the meaning of all things."(1 Ne 11:17)

How I live my faith

I strive to be like Christ in everything I do and say, in all of my thoughts and actions. I look for opportunities to serve others everywhere that I go and find joy in knowing that I helped someone out. I love to be a friend as well as a home teacher and enjoy meeting and getting to know people. My roommates and I often have lengthy conversations about gospel topics and love to share things we have learned that have touched or enlightened us. I live my faith each and every day, it is a major part of who I am.
