Hi I'm Mats

I grew up in Utah. I love football and basketball. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up playing sports from the time I can remember. I started playing basketball in a county recreational league at age 5 and have not stopped since. I played football throughout Jr. High and High school. I look forward to going to college after serving a mission for my church. I plan to study physical/sports therapy and hope to someday work with athletic teams.

Why I am a Mormon

Have lived part of my life with, and part of my life without living the teachings of the church and there is a marked difference in my ability to be happy. it is not say say that the only time I have ever smiled or laughed is when I have been active in attening the church, but there seemed to be such hollow happiness without the gospel in my life. I made the decision to change 3 years ago and i have been happier in the last 3 years of my life combined then the first 21. I know it is directly linked to having a sure knowledge of God's plan for me and by being willing to do the hard things.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a missionary for the church. It has been an experience I wish all young men to have an opportunity to experience. I have learned more about being a good husband, a good father, and having a better all around balance in life for when I return home and begin building these relationships.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?
