Hi I'm Matt

I'm a missionary in Australia, I love snowboarding and anything to do with the mountains, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I grew up in the mountain valleys of Utah. I snowboard in the winter and wakeboard in the summer. And if possible I love to do other activities like mountain biking, rock climbing, and hiking. There's nothing better than standing on top of the tallest mountain around and being able to see for ages in all dirrections. I have a great family and love them alot. Being the second oldest of eight I hope to be a good example for my younger siblings. And currently I am seving a mission in Australia. 

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a member of the church , and believed what my parents had taught me. Church was just what we did on Sundays. One day one of my teachers challenged me to pray about the book of mormon and ask whether it was true or not. Inside I thought that was a stupid idea for I already felt it was true. Yet I still found a time when I could kneel and offer a prayer to God about the book of mormon. I can't describe the feelings i felt then only that it was an amazing feeling of peace and comfort. I know without any shadow of a doubt that the book of mormon is true! I would invite all to read it, ponder its teachings, and pray to know for themselves whether it is true. I know that if you pray with real intent desiring to know the truth you will recieve an answer that the book is true. 

How I live my faith

 At the moment I am living my faith by serving a two-year mission for the Lord. I love my mission and the people I have been able to work with. Its an amazing thing to see someone's life change for good. Especially if it is based on a belief in Jesus Christ and His Atonement. It is only through Christ that we can remove feelings of doubt and shame, and cleanse ourselves of sin. I have a strong testimony of my Savior Jesus Christ and hope to serve him even after my mission by always lifting and inspiring those around me. I may not always be a missionary, but I can always do missionary work!
