Hi I'm Matthew Dunahee

I'm a recreational cyclist, a scouter, Graduate Architect, a father of 6 children, a husband, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in the Midwestern United States most of my life. I grew up in a large family, and enjoyed it. I was honored to serve a mission for the church in Tucsan, AZ and it has had a profound influence on my life. I studied architecture in college. I continue to work and live in the midwest. My family and I enjoy camping, biking, hiking, snorkling, art, books, travel, and movies.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and I felt it was right at a very young age. It always seemed to make sense. The summer after high school however, I had an experience that caused me to question everything. I asked Heavenly Father for an answer. It changed my life forever. I know it is true, and lead by Jesus Christ through inspired leaders here on earth. We can be happier by living the gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I love to serve in the church. I have held many different callings or assignments and grow from each of them. Helping and serving others is a blessing that strenghtens me, and is what I think the savior would have me do when ever possible. I try always to use my faith to look at the bright side of any situation and to make the best of life.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Matthew Dunahee
The family is where the best opertunity for teaching, learning and character building take place. The each member of a family unit has important roles that allow all to have basic needs meet and provided for. Parents love, support and care for the individual well being of each child. The children trust that there parents will teach them correct principles. In return, children help and allow parents to grow and improve as people, developing selfless love or charity.
