Hi I'm Matt

I love basketball. I'm a huge fan of movies and Slurpees. I'm a Mormon and I love it.

About Me

My name is Matt and I love life. I have a good time in just about every situation. I love watching movies and basketball while hanging out with friends and enjoying a delicious Slurpee! I have had two semesters of college. I played basketball and participated in track for my high school in Washington. I absolutley love my friends and family. They are the best (THANK YOU)! I am the youngest in my family - I have two brothers and three sisters.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this church is true. I have had the privilege of being raised up in a great family with the best siblings and parents ever that live that principles of the Gospel. BUT I still had to find out for myself whether or not the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. I have done so by reading from the Bible and the Book of Mormon, attending church, and praying to God and asking him specific questions about what I have read and learned, and then listening to the feelings from the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost speaks to us by giving us feelings of love, joy, peace, gentleness and faith. I have experienced these feelings when I am with those that I love, when I read from the scriptures, when I attend church, when I am kind to others, and in all good things. The Holy Ghost gives me these feelings (feelings of truth) most strongly when I am thinking of the Savior. I have made mistakes, I have been depressed, I have been discouraged but I have become stronger through these trials because of Jesus Christ and His infinite love and care. I feel the closest to Him when I read from His scriptures and testaments. Namely, the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best by following God's commandments. I read from the scriptures and pray every day and I attend church every Sunday. I find more happiness and blessings through obedience to God's commandments. I also try my best to help others to find those blessings in thir life. IF we read scriptures, pray, attend church together... we will come closer to Christ together.
