Hi I'm Matt

I'm a Mormon from Southern California. I love to snowboard, watch movies, and hang out with my family and friends.

About Me

I graduated a few years ago with a Business degree and a minor in Economics. I am glad to have a college degree, but don't miss going to school. I met my wife one day in the college cafeteria. I got her phone number, but for some reason never called. We ended up in a class together a short while later. We started making up excuses to study together, fell in love, and got married. We just had a baby girl and I am still trying to get the diaper changing thing down. People tell me now that I'm a Dad, I'm old. I am still trying to hang onto my youth though. I snowboard, roller blade, and fly remote controlled helicopters.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be a Mormon because of the peace being a follower of Jesus Christ brings. This church teaches that no matter who you are, where you live, what you've done, Jesus cares about and loves you. I've learned that God wants to give all of his children the opportunity to find peace in this life and the life hereafter. The Mormon church has helped me find this peace. God speaks to me individually. I can pray and have my questions answered. God speaks to the world through His scriptures written by prophets of old. God also speaks to us through a prophet and 12 apostles who are alive today. There is a lot of bad things that go on in the world today. A lot of confusion about who God really is. The Mormon church has helped me understand what my purpose is on the earth and how God can help me and my family to be happy.

How I live my faith

Right now I have been very busy with work so I don't get to put as much time into church as I'd like. I attend church once a week. I read my scriptures as often as I can. I try to help those around me and be a positive person.

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Definitely do. I love to read the 4 gospels that follow the life of Jesus.  Show more Show less
