Hi I'm Rachel Larsen

I was born in Texas. I have played sports my whole life. I now live in Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently attending college in Utah. I am about to serve an LDS mission in Brazil. I love to play sports, especially volleyball and basketball. I am the youngest of four, and I am the only girl.

Why I am a Mormon

There are many reasons why I am a Mormon. I was raised in an LDS family, so I grew up being apart of this gospel. As I have grown up I have gained a testimony of different aspects of the gospel. It brings so much joy into my life that I would not have otherwise. I have a testimony of The Book of Mormon. It testifies of Christs life here in the Americas and it can bring so much peace into our lives. I have received many answers from my prayers through the Book of Mormon. Being a member of His church, I have learned that I am never alone. I have a testimony that God has a plan for each individual, and he wants us to have as much joy as we as we make our way back to living with Him again. I am proud to say I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I currently serve in my church as an activity planner for college students. Every Monday we do what is called "family home evening." We get together and do service or activities to take a break from our busy school and work lives. I also am called to visit people in my ward and share messages to them about the gospel of Jesus Christ, and serve them in any way I can.
