Hi I'm Matthew
I completed graduate studies in anthropology. I like to read and write. I'm an educator. I'm a Mormon.
I teach college. I enjoy teaching, learning new things, researching, and writing. I have a family and enjoy to spend time with them. I also enjoy running, hiking, biking, basketball, and baseball.
Why I am a Mormon
I am a Mormon because I read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it to know that it is true. I received an answer of its truthfulness. My faith was tried as a missionary, where I saw other people do the same as me--to find out for themselves that the Church is true. I feel of the Savior's love through witnessing of his truth and serving other people. All of these things I have done as a Mormon. Living the Gospel of Jesus Christ has brought me much happiness. When I have fallen, the Lord has lifted me up. I am not perfect, but I know that as I try to be like Jesus and to walk in His ways by following his example and teachings as found in His Church that I have greater happiness than when I don't follow his ways.
How I live my faith
I live my faith by teaching the gospel to a small group of adults on Sundays at church. I also serve in the community and attend to my civic duties.
