Hi I'm Matthew

I live in Alabama. I'm a computer engineer, and have two children and a wife who is my best friend. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a father of two, used to rock climb and had a motorcycle (before having little children). I'm a software developer at an open source telecommunications company that I've enjoyed worked at for about 10 years (with a 2 year mission pushed into that period as well).

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because God told me to be. Although I was born in the church, I had to find my own reason to stay. This came through my reading of the Book of Mormon, and subsequently asking God in prayer if it was correct. I received a strong, personal, and recognizable answer directly from my question to Him, that it was indeed given to us by a prophet called by Him.

How I live my faith

I try to do my best to live my faith. I know that in many ways, I am still trying to improve the way I live, but I am grateful for my Jesus - who has enabled me to repent and try to each day improve the way I emulate him. I like to work with both young and old people in and out of the church, and enjoy serving wherever a need comes. I've had the chance to go and help with a few hurricane cleanup efforts and loved being able to assist people who truly needed help.
