Hi I'm Mattie

I'm from Utah. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I like helping others and raising money for the American Cancer Society Relay For Life. I enjoy music, reading, and being spontaneous! I also suffer from depression/anxiety and have made a lot of bad decisions in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born LDS. However, I didn't necessarily understand what the gospel was. Because I lacked understanding, I made some wrong decisions in my life that I lived with for many years. One night things got extremely bad and it scared me. In this moment of pain I decided to say a prayer. I hadn't prayed for a long time, but knew that the Lord would hear me and help me if I just had faith. That prayer changed everything for me. Unfortunately, I was still to scared to talk about my past to my Bishop and I was still struggling with temptations. Finally, I had enough. I didn't want to be in pain or scared anymore so I prayed and repented. Because of the Atonement I have been given another chance to live my life the right way, the way the Lord wants me to live. I am so much happier with Heavenly Father in my life and knowledge I have of my Savior and the love He has for me. It's incomprehensible just how much we are ALL loved by Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, but it's there and I personally feel their love and faith in me each time I pray, read the scriptures, go to church, keep the commandments, and follow the prompting of His Holy Spirit.

How I live my faith

I love going visiting teaching each month and am currently getting ready to serve a mission.
