Hi I'm Mattie Earnest

I grew up in Central Oregon and am going to school at BYU. I am also preparing to serve a mission in Arequipa Peru.

About Me

Right now I am going to school at BYU studying public health. I love to learn and hope to be able to use my education to help people all around the world. Some of my favorite things to do are dance, hike, travel, and bake. I have 2 brothers and 2 sisters. I am also getting ready to serve my mission in Peru and can't wait to serve the people there!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because being one makes me happy. Following what the Lord has asked me to do has blessed me life in so many ways. As I read the scriptures, pray, and go to church, I am filled with the spirit. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me and am grateful for the blessings being apart of this church has brought me.

How I live my faith

I work with the group of women ages 18 and older. Every week I meet with three other girls to talk about how we can serve and uplift the other women we go to church with. Throughout the week we try our best to find ways to serve and love others.
