Hi I'm Matt Williams

I'm a university student, I'm an athlete, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

HI! I'm Matt. I am currently studying business management and Chinese at my university. I love the outdoors, I love track and field. I am currently on the track and field team at my university. I love being with my friends and family. I love enjoying life. 

Why I am a Mormon

 I grew up as a Mormon. But as I got older I decided that I needed to decide for my self whether or not this was the way I wanted to live my life. I read the Book of Mormon, went to church, and did my best to live the teachings that I learned. Through all of that I felt the comforting presence of the Holy Ghost which lead me to know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints really is God's true and living church on the earth today. I know that because of the restored truths we can all know our potential. I know that families can be together for all eternity. I know that Jesus Christ died for me, and loves each and every one of us.

How I live my faith

 I go to church every Sunday. I always try to participate in the lessons at church. I travel a lot because I am an athlete so I always try to be a good example to those on my team and the other people I am blessed to meet. I also try to go to the temple as often as possible. I find that when I am near or in the temple there is added peace in my life.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Matt Williams
 When I read the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures I feel like my life is being guided by God. That is a huge blessing. In this life there are tons of decisions and consequences of those decisions. If you have God helping you make those decisions the consequences will be great! I love the scriptures and the happiness they bring to my life. Show more Show less

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Matt Williams
The writers of the Book of Mormon are many ancient prophets from the ancient American continent. They were similar to Moses or Noah or even Peter, James, and John. They all had the same mission, to testify of Christ. I know the book of Mormon came from God's servants and that it was translated for us through His power. I know that if you read it, it will change your life for the better. Show more Show less
