Hi I'm Matt

I love music. I make mistakes. I learn, grow, and change. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Matt. I love life. I have learned over the years what exactly makes me happy. My family makes me happy. Teaching and helping others makes me happy. Simply, I love the Lord. Additionally, a large part of my life has been dedicated to music. I've played the guitar since I was 14 and have been singing for my entire life. Music brings out the best in me. I love it. I've been taught to love and appreciate music by my talented mother. I have been blessed with five fun-loving siblings and two wonderful parents. Life is good.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown into an adult and my understanding of the Savior has evolved throughout the years. He loves me. No matter what I do I can repent and repair my relationship with Him. I am a member of this church because of the clarity it provides me of who am I. I am a son of God. I know what I'm doing here. I know where I can go if I trust in the Lord. I have experienced His love and it has motivated me change. I still change as He continues to touch me. The Church has helped me find peace and happiness. I can live with my family forever. I can bless others' lives. God lives. Jesus is the Christ. The gospel is so sweet, so simple. I owe my life to Him. I am nothing without Him. Because He lives, I too can live. I am grateful for a loving Father who still reaches out to us, His children, even today. Joseph Smith was a prophet of God called to restore what was once lost. There is a prophet today - President Thomas S Monson - who leads and guides His mortal work. I know this to be true. I have felt it. I have internalized the message of the restoration. I have tested the words and works presented. I received an undeniable answer that the Book of Mormon is true through the sweet love and peace that cannot be replicated. The Holy Ghost has whispered as only He can. My heart has been touched as only He can touch it. I am who I am and do what I do because I know by the power of the Holy Ghost that Jesus is the Christ.

How I live my faith

I have served in several positions during my time as a member of His church. But most of all, I love being involved in the dissemination of truth through teaching the way He did, with love. Currently I oversee the teachers of Sunday School and occasionally get to teach myself. Teaching and learning gospel truths is essential to our progression and understanding of our Savior. The more we learn, the closer we become to Christ. Truly He is the only way back to the Father. As I help our teachers catch the vision of His eternal sacrifice and instruct them on how to implement Him into our lessons, the Spirit of God enters the lives of those we serve. I am happy to help the work of God move forward!
