Hi I'm Matt

I'm a husband, father, brother, son, and a friend. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love just about everything mechanical and recently graduated with my bachelors in Mechanical Engineering. I'm working full time now for a diesel engine company. My hobbies include snow skiing, water skiing, wake boarding, watching movies with my family, and restoring classic cars. I went on a mission to California to share Christ's message and I'm a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always known that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. Every time I open the pages and begin to read I feel a piece come into my life I don't get by reading any other book. As I study the Book of Mormon I feel my thoughts and desires aligning with those of our Savior Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I strive to keep the spirit in my life by living a clean life and choosing friends who will help me be a better person. I enjoy serving in the Temple and usually go a couple times a month with my wife. We perform ordinances for those who have passed away without the opportunity. I also enjoy being the Webelos Scout Leader in my congregation. The youth are so inspiring and have so much excitement for life.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon Temples? What goes on in Mormon Temples?

Matt
Temples are very special places. They are not secret, but sacred. Anyone can enter the temple if they are willing to prepare properly. When someone is baptized they make certain promises to God. When we go to the temple we make even bigger promises to God. If someone is not fully prepared, they will not be able to live up to these promises. Our goal is for all to eventually be ready to make these promises to God so they can also enjoy the blessings that come from making and keeping them. Show more Show less
