Hi I'm Matt
People call me Teo, Moti'i, and bigs. I speak Russian and a little Ukrainian, love to sing, and I'm a Mormon.
I am 24 going on 25, and I love living life! (You should be thinking Sound of Music at this point). I'm finishing up a Masters degree in Information Systems at BYU, love User Experience Design and want to make a difference in the world. I love music and art and have done both most of my life. I have the best family in the world!! No questions asked--plus friends to match. I lived two years in Ukraine and Moldova as a volunteer missionary and loved it. I love languages and linguistics and as a result, I have a habit of meeting new people. ;)
Why I am a Mormon
Because it is the most wonderful thing in the world! I have found no thing that brings me as much joy and happiness in life as striving to live like a "mormon". At its simplest, it is a life of striving to know truth and live by it. It is striving to know God, our Father, who is the source of all truth. I want to be like Him.
How I live my faith
Faith is belief plus action. Faith is dead without some sort of action on our behalf. If we believe that we can be blessed by reading the scriptures, we'll read them as a sign of our faith or belief. If we believe that God answers prayers, we pray. I try my best to show my faith by giving of myself in church associations, by being loving and of service in my relationships with friends and family, by doing all that I can to show my love to my Heavenly Father in word and deed.
