Hi I'm George Eugene Larkin

I was the first child in a family of five. I grew up on a small farm and learned how to work. I was blessed to get an education.

About Me

I grew up on a small farm & had to work hard to help my father. I had two younger brothers and two sisters. I was able to go to college and received my masters degree in Chemistry. I have been blessed by the scouting program. I have three sons who are Eagle Scouts and I have helped many other young men to reach that rank. I enjoy hiking and being in the out doors. I am now retired and enjoy being with my wife, children and 24 grandchildren.

Why I am a Mormon

As I have served others my testimony of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ has grown. I have come to know for myself that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is God's true church on the earth today with the power and authority to act in His name. I have felt the Savior's love and tender mercies in my life and know that He lives and loves each of us. The Book of Mormon is another witness for Jesus Christ. It has helped my testimony to grow.

How I live my faith

Before I was married I was a missionary for my church. I was in Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Ontario, Canada. It was a learning and growing time for me as well as being able to help and serve others. I have worked with the youth organization and been a scout master. I have served in several leadership positions in the wards I have lived in, which included Bishop & Bishop's counselor. I have also had the opportunity to help with missionary work locally. I work for a couple of years in our church employment office, helping others with job search and employment skills. During much of this time I have also been a home teacher. My sons and grandsons have assisted me in this effort to help several of the widows in our ward, to be aware of their needs and to help where we could.
