Hi I'm Matthew Olsen

I grew up in Austin Texas. I attended Brigham Young University Idaho. I'm a Missionary in Oaxaca, Mexico. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Austin Texas with my family. My mom and dad have been married for 25 years. I have three sisters an older sister whos a professional singer in Nashvillle Tennesse, a twin sister whos my best friend and a little sister who is an amazingly kind and fun to mess with. I played varsity Football and ran Varsity track my sophmore through Senior year in which I had great experiences sharing my beliefs with friends and schoolmates.

Why I am a Mormon

I have read the Book of Mormon and I know that it's true. As I have lived the gospel I have felt the presence of the lord walking me through life helping me all along the way in making me the man that I am today.

How I live my faith

Living my faith has best been taught to me by my Mother and Father. They have been solid examples on how I need to fall to my knees to pray, read my scriptures and to constantly and consistantly be involved with my local coongreagtion. I live my faith by surrounding myself with people who uplift me and encourage me to live my standards. Obedience is a simple word, but sometimes hard to do. Through being obedient to my covenants I have placed myself in a place of success and oppurtunity.
