Hi I'm Matthew

I was raised in an abusive home, spent my 20's looking for answers and growth. I found it and now ... I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 35 a husband and father of two young children. I have a successful business I started after about ten years in the technology/Internet industry. Like anyone raised in an abusive home I still struggle with the consequences of other people's actions ... but I have peace now. I know my Father in Heaven personally and I counsel with Him in my prayers. He loves me and the love of His son fills the void I had. When I first learned that there really was a God it was a complete shock to me but the most important truth I've ever learned. My life is full, and complete, and robust now because of my membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and the deeper knowledge (and relationship) it gives me with God.

Why I am a Mormon

There is one simple truth that you will not find anywhere else; it is that we lived before we came to this Earth and that we are here for a reason. That is a true doctrine. We did live before we came here, we are here for a reason, we can effect where we go after this life. Our life does have meaning. If you listen to your heart it will tell you that, yes, you did live before you came here. That truth is worth knowing more about.

How I live my faith

The Mormon faith is a way of life, not a church. We believe ... I believe ... in The Savior, Jesus Christ and we try to live in harmony with His teachings. I feel a love and compassion for my fellow beings that I never felt before. I remember when I started investigating this church and someone from the pulpit said "I love you all" and I thought, 'impossible'. Now, however, I understood what he meant and how it feels to love others and feel at peace here on Earth.

What is done with the tithing that Mormons pay?

Matthew
Tithing is used as an action arm of the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is used to build houses of worship, to help the communities in which we worship, to help the downtrodden, sick, and widowed. It is money given by members to The Lord to accomplish His purposes. Moreover, I have found that without a doubt my life is better and my business more successful as I pay an honest tithe and keep the Sabbath day holy. Show more Show less
