Hi I'm Matthew~

I was raised as a Protestant in Minnesota. Then in 1976 I joined: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

About Me

I'm a Husband, Father, Grandfather, Son, and student of Life. I love people. I've been an Emergency Medical Technician, a Crisis Counselor, Boy Scout leader, and faithful friend. I like to restore brass musical instruments.

Why I am a Mormon

All my life I have wanted to come closer to God. I remember praying as early as age six, and having my prayers answered. As a teenager I learned about the restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ. I read the Book of Mormon, prayerfully. The sweet witness of the Holy Ghost confirmed to me that it is truly: Another Testament of Jesus Christ I was baptised a member of the LDS Church in 1976! My membership has brought me peace, joy, and an insight into God and His Plan of Salvation, and how much God loves us!

How I live my faith

Compassionate service. I love to listen to people who need to be heard, who need a friend, and the love that is best shown in highlighting the good that is in people already, while also encouraging them to see the bright future blessings that are in store for them.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Jesus said: "If ye love me, ye will serve me and keep my commandments." As we try each day to treat people, and ourselves, in a kind and Christ-like way... we will feel the light and love of the Savior grow brighter within us. Our Faith will be strengthened, our thoughts of tomorrow will be filled with Hope, and peace will witness to our souls that God lives, and Jesus Christ lives, and through the Holy Ghost we may know that all these things are from God to bless our lives.
