Hi I'm Matthew

I am a reader, I am a Musician, I believe a smile can cure just about anything, and I am a Mormon

About Me

I am your run of the mill Joe, except my name is Matt. I love music. I believe that God allows us to get a glimpse of heaven through the fine arts such as music, art, etc. I have found that when I sing music that contains religious themes I am always up lifted; which on days when I am super stressed is always good. But I also love to sing show tunes and some (I use the word some loosely) more modern music.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because that is what I choose to be. Some may say it is because I was born into this religion. I say differently; the direction my life has gone I can tell you that God has watched out for me and that I am one of his sons. So are you or if your a girl you are one of his daughters. He has answered my prayers to now if The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is his church; and I know my answer.

How I live my faith

I try my hardest everyday to do something better today than I did yesterday. I try to be kinder to people, and more loving. I also incorporate my faith into my music; I have found that has I visualize and internalize the words to hymns and other sacred music that I can go "Hey I have felt that way too", and I can put more of my soul into a performance. Above all I believe that being an example is paramount.

What is the Law of Chastity?

Matthew
The Law of Chastity is Heavenly Father's rule of sexual conduct between a man and a women. We believe that the power and way life is created is sacred. As such it should only be used between a man and a women that are legally and lawfully wedded. However it also includes not watching pornography in any of its forms or provoking those emotions in ourselves either by ourselves or by another person. Show more Show less

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Matthew
Test it out. You have to come to know for your self that its true. The missionaries can help you get to that point but they can not make you know; only you can do that. Read the Book of Mormon, and pray actually pray with the intent that if Heavenly Father answers you that you will actually do something. Then in the Lord's timetable the answer will come; he will answer he is bound by his own law to do so. Show more Show less
