Hi I'm Matt

Small town guy trying to do my best to be what I'm meant to be

About Me

Grew up in a small town. Married a beautiful little blonde. Father of five. Have created several businesses. Professional photographer and home designer/builder. Technology geek. Talkative. Like to dream about what can be.

Why I am a Mormon

Born into a solid Mormon family whose roots in the church go back to the church's very beginning. Read the Book of Mormon for the first time at age 17 while living by myself on a remote ranch. At that time I experienced a spiritual manifestation that I absolutely could not deny...and then I could say, "I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God. Joseph Smith was a prophet." Over several decades since that first experience I have had many additional spiritual re-confirmations.

How I live my faith

I do my best to keep the Ten Commandments. I'm faithful to my wife. I don't allow destructive things into my body or mind. I strive to be on the same path Jesus Christ would be on, I'm trying to do what He would do. I forgive others and forgive myself.
