Hi I'm Jonathan Larsen

I grew up in Southern California and I'm serving my mission in the Colorado Colorado Springs Mission.

About Me

I grew up raising and showing livestock. I am one of 6 children, and I enjoy spending rowdy, fun with my family. Because of my love for animals, I want to become a veterinarian. Because of my love for my Savior, I have put my education on hold while I serve a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon. I grew up in the church and as I got older I wanted to know that it was true for myself. So I prayed and asked my Heavenly Father if the church was true and I received an answer that it was true. The church and the gospel has always brought me peace and happiness in my life.

How I live my faith

I grew up in "the church" and have benefited greatly from the youth programs. I started in the Boy Scouts of America Program as a 8 year old Cub Scout, I earned the rank of Eagle School as Sophomore in High School and have continued to give service in my community. Service that I have done in the community with church service projects as well as with other groups I am a part of are: community clean-up, Adopt-a-Highway, canned food drives, visiting the convalescent homes, pajama drive for the local hospital children's ward, cards to soldiers, and yard work for the elderly. I love to help others.
