Hi I'm Matt

I work in Construction and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy working on cars and spending time with my wife. I got a degree in Construction Management, met and married my wife in college and I've been moving around the country for the last three years for work.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents both converted to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints before they met, so I was born into the church. I grew up attending meetings every Sunday and having a lot of fun at all the activities. As I grew up I realized that there was something more to the church than just a place we went to on Sundays. In High School the standards that I had been taught since I was a child really helped in avoiding a lot of potentially bad mistakes. My friends recognized there was something different about me, but mainly they just noticed that I never swore. My faith grew as I got older and got more involved in my own personal search for truth. When I was 19 I went on a mission and there gained even more faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ and the restoration of His church. Today, my faith in the Savior helps me to live each day with a hope for a brighter future and a knowledge that there is more to this life than meets the eye. When challenges and trials face me, I know that the Savior knows what I'm feeling and knows how to help. Although the trials and challenges are still difficult I know that the Savior will come again and all the wrongs in the world will be made right.

How I live my faith

Throughout the week I still am noticed as someone that doesn't swear and go out for drinks on the weekend. I attend church each Sunday and occasionally attend activities though out the week. At least once a month I visit a few families to make sure they are doing well, share a message and help them out with anything they may need. Occasionally when I see someone in need like a car broken down on the side of the road, I help out and get them back up and running.
