Hi I'm Matthew

I grew up in Southern California. I am a school teacher. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the father of two boys. I've been married for 10 and a half years. I enjoy playing the guitar and hiking in the mountians. I currently teach Social Studies in Southern California.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family. I continue to live the gospel of Jesus Christ because I came to know of it's truthfulness as a teenager. I decided to read the Book Of Mormon. While reading it the Spirit of the Lord touched my heart. I also prayed to Heavenly Father and my prayers were answered. I came to know that the Book of Mormon is true and that it testifies of the reality of Jesus Christ and his sacrafice for us. I came to know for myself that Joseph Smith was also a true prophet. This knowledge has given me strength to live the commandments and helps me raise my family. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has brought peace to me and my family.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to be kind and helpful. I serve my famliy as well as in the Church. I am a leader in the men's organization of the Church. I follow all of the teachings of the Church leaders and scriptures.
