Hi I'm Matt

I grew up on a small farm in Pennsylvania, served in the Marine Corps, and worked in construction. I am a Mormon

About Me

I am a father of 5. I enjoy target shooting and reloading. I am considering going back to school. I am currently the Assistant Cub Master and ARP Group Facilitator for our ward building.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member my entire life, however for the past 16 years I have struggled with many violations of church doctrine. As I hit bottom about a year and a half ago, I found the ARP program. It helped me to revive my testimony. It enabled me to return to full fellowship in the gospel. This has brought such peace and joy to my life.

How I live my faith

I have the opportunity to serve as Assistant CUb Master. It is so neat to see the boys as they work so hard to progress and to watch them grow up. I also am priviledged to be able to serve as the Addiction Recovery Program Facilitator for our building. This program changed my life and I am so thankful for the opportunity I have to be able to help others. It is wonderful to watch the Lord help those who are struggling with whatever their addiction is to overcome it and return to Him.

What are Mormon Temples used for?

Matt
The temple is used as a place to increase our knowledge of Heavenly Father's plan of salvation. We also make covenants there to help us return to live with him again. We have the opportunity to be closer to Him here than anywhere else. I use the temple to feel His peace and love and to experience the revernece and beauty that is found within. It is also a place to find answere to whatever is troubling you. Show more Show less
