Hi I'm William Andrew Joseph Matteson
I'm a son of 2 amazing people I'm a brother of 5 incredible siblings I'm an uncle to 3 wonderous kids I'm best friends with a genius I have plans for the future: Video Game Development (Programming in general), Books, Movies (and more). I'm naive, but faithful. I love those I serve. Mosiah 8 : 18 I will never satisfied with: "It's not THAT bad."
Why I am a Mormon
Because God is real. I knew it in my head and deep down for a long time, but it was never in my heart until I earnestly and unbiasedly asked Him if He was really there. When anyone truly opens there soul to Him and plans to ACT on what He tells you, He will tell you. He loves us all and is ready, even now, to give us unimaginable gifts and wisdom as we turn to Him. Never forget though: Everything must be done in wisdom and in order, and it is not requeset that a man run faster than he has strength (and no, asking for more strength isn't always the answer). I love thee God. I don't know why you've given me so much and ask so little in return, but I'll be darned if I don't give as much back as I can.
How has the Book of Mormon brought you closer to God?
The pure word of God has infinite worth. Just reading it seriously teaches me everything I need to do to cause myself to be a great person.
How has the Holy Ghost helped you?
Saved me and has guided me to the right paths that will save others. Let me know you CAN know things for CERTAIN. Only satan would tell you that because you can't speak it in words, you can't possibly KNOW it. All that is doing is pointing out the clear limitations in our communication. But, as God and almost 14+million people as my witness, you very much CAN.
How can your talents and gifts bless others?
With divine help: in every way.
How I live my faith
I take God seriously and yearn for his correction. I will continue with God, receiving more light, line by line, precept upon precept, here a little and there a little, and remove the dark scales from my eyes. I know The Lord loves me and He has been more merciful to me than I deserve, yet I will be a good receiver and accept this gift He freely gives to me and use it to change my life.
