Hi I'm Matthew

I grew up in Arizona and i love to play baseball and meet new people! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am very outgoing and i love to explore new things in life. I own my own Pool Cleaning Business and i love to work. Some of my favorite hobbies are to play baseball, go hunting, work, and hangout with my friends and family. I have taken a year of community college and plan to be an orthopedic surgeon if i dont end up playing baseball. I have had many learning experiences in my life that have allowed me to grow in so many ways and i love helping others and letting them now that they are loved.

Why I am a Mormon

When i was 6 or 7 years old, my parents were baptized into the LDS church. I wasnt really aware of the kind of change this was until i was 8 and was baptized. Since that time, i never really had a very strong testimony of the church and never really lived by it. But when i had some events in my life that made me think about who i really am and if i even know who i am, it caused me to rely on the Lord. Through a lot of praying and studying the scriptures, i finally gained my own testimony of this church and how true the Book of Mormon is. This has brought so many blessings to my life and in every way i have become who i am today because of the gospel and i am so glad to be a part of it. The knowledge that comes from reading the Book of Mormon and praying with faith has helped me understand what i really want in my life and they have helped me to realize what the important things in life are. I know that Jesus Christ is our savior and redeemer. I know that through his atonement, we are all able to return and live with him and our Father in Heaven once again. It is through this knowledge that i will never return to my old ways again. I know we have a prophet on this earth that leads and guides our church today. His name is Thomas S. Monson and he is a man called by God to lead us in the way that God would have us go. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that if you pray to know the truth, your prayer will be answered. Everytime i have prayed with Faith, Heavenly Father has answered my prayer. Families can be together forever through the Plan of Salvation and if we follow the commandments and live our lives in the light of Christ and do what is necessary to return to him, then we will have that opportunity. My testimony is everything to me and without it, i honestly do not want to know who i would be or where i would be. It has shaped me into who i am today, and it can do the same for you, but you have to let it change you. Submit your will to the Lord and follow His will, and you will never regret it.

How I live my faith

I am a missionary out preaching the gospel in the spanish language and i love the gospel!

What is faith?

Faith is believing in something without having seen it. Faith is something that you aquire thorugh practice. If you dont try to have faith, then you never will. You must use your faith ever day and in every situation you encounter. With Faith, anything is possible. Show more Show less
