Hi I'm Matt!

I'm a Father, Husband, Veteran, and a Mormon!

About Me

I am married with one little girl. After serving in the United States Air Force for 20 years we settled down in Utah. I currently work for a charter school as an IT Department Manager. I am an avid amateur astronomer, keenly interested in aviation, and a perpetual scholar. I am also an amateur radio operator, electronics hobbyist, and microcontroller programmer, and a die hard flight simulator enthusiast.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because after seeking out truth, I was blessed to find it and a way to know for myself that it is true. I love the fact that I am sealed to my family for time and all eternity. I find great joy in knowing that those things that bring me the greatest joy in this life can carry over past the grave. By and through the Priesthood those blessings can be conveyed on all of Heavenly Father's children. I can also help to let those who may not have had an opportunity to do so in this life to realize the same blessings of the Temple. I knew after accepting the challenge to pray to know whether the Gospel and the Church are true or not for myself. I know that if I can find this out for myself, so can anyone else who desires to know. Get a free copy of the Book of Mormon and talk to the missionaries. Read, ponder, and pray to know the truth and you will have the same result as I did.

How I live my faith

I work everyday to know what I need to do to live up to the potential that my Heavenly Father expects of me. I love attending my meetings at Church each week. It is uplifting to hear of the blessings the Gospel have impacted the lives of others. It is a wonderful time to contemplate the impact of blessings in my life and focus on what I can do in the coming week to help others and serve my Heavenly Father. Some days are better than others, but by exercising repentance and tightly embracing the joy of accepting the Savior's atonement for my mistakes, I can forget about those errors and strive to progress.
