Hi I'm Matthew

I grew up in Orem, Ut and have 4 younger Brothers and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 20 years old and I am enjoying life at its fullest. I love the Church and all that it does for others around me. I have 4 younger brothers who I love very much. Not to mention my Mother and Father who give me outstanding support while I am out serving the Lord Jesus Christ. I Love to play with children and to help the people of Virginia learn more about Jesus and what he does for us in our every day lives. I love to work hard and if I get dirty so what! It is fun! I also love antique cars and the amount of fun work that can be found while working on them.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a part of this Church today because I have seen and see each and every day what it does to change the lives of people all around me. I did not always believe it all to be true but as I have been out serving the Lord I have seen Miracles worked in the lives of members and non-members alike. I love the Gospel that is taught and the never ending growth that you can and will find in the pages of the Book of Mormon. The Prophet, Thomas S. Monson is an amazing man who gives us everything that God needs us to know. I love him and honor him very much.

How I live my faith

I live by the word and work of God each and every day. It is so much fun to be out in Virginia talking to people about Jesus and how he can help us all in our lives no matter how far we have fallen. It is so much fun to hear people talk about those 2 guys who always ride around on bikes in a suit and tie. I love the service that I have been called to and it has changed my life forever.

Can husband and wife be together forever? Do you believe that families will live together in heaven?

Matthew
Yes! Husband and Wife can be together forever. We will be with our family in the next life or "Heaven" as some put it. Families can and will be together forever. This is because of the authority that God gives to man to bind things on earth and in heaven. It is through sacred covenants that we make with God in His Holy Temples where His authority is found that we can do such things. It is a wonderful blessing in my life to know that I will be with my family forever and to know that my future spouse and I will be married for not only this life but the next as well.

What is faith?

Matthew
Faith is an action word. It means, to me, to put action into something that I cannot necessarily see but I know is there. I like to look at it like flying a kite. I can’t see the wind that lifts the kite high into the air but I know that it is there. So I take action and throw the kite into the air, running and hoping that that wind will catch it and lift it high into the sky. Show more Show less
