Hi I'm Matt Herrick

I love sports, food, and my family. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm the youngest of seven sons, no sisters. I have finished two years of college at BYU but I decided to set that aside for now and serve a mission for my faith and for my Savior. I love playing, watching, and talking about sports, especially football, baseball, and volleyball. I'm an Eagle Scout which has helped me throughout my life in many different ways. I love making jokes and laughing my head off. I was home schooled along with most of my brothers. Don't make fun of me haha. I simply love having a good, wholesome time with friends, family, and anyone else who wants to join!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church but by no means does that mean I am not a "convert" to the church. I had to find out for myself, just as everyone does, whether or not this church is God's true church on the Earth. I got my answer. I know that this church has the fullness of the Lord's gospel and is the only religion that can make that claim. I know this not because my parents told it was was so, but because I have asked my Heavenly Father and I have received my answer. I'm a Mormon because it gives me a peace of mind and heart knowing that I am doing what my Heavenly Father wants me to do. I'm a Mormon because it makes me happier that I ever though possible. I'm a Mormon because this church is true. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints because it is God's church here on Earth and I know it.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a full-time mission for my faith. I set aside school, dating, friends, family, and all other forms of social life for two years to serve my God. I do this not because I'm told to but because it is important to me. I love it so far.
