Hi I'm Matt

I love baseball, snowboarding and hanging out at the beach. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 21 year old kid that loves to kick back and relax. O recently just returned from full-time missionary service for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the great Tennessee Nashville Mission! I love sharing the wonderful message that we have. My "normal" life consisted of being with my family and friends. Mostly my family though. I love em! Going to the beach with my brother and playing sports. I love the game of baseball. I am thankful to my God for all the great blessings he has given me that come because of His son, our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Mormon faith and baptized when i was 8. Did that mean i completely knew that the church is true? Not at all. I had an idea that it was true but never really knew for myself if it was. That all changed when i decided to pray one day and asked God if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church that Christ himself set up while he was here on this earth. My answer came to me through the Holy Ghost and I recieved a witness that this is the only true church on the earth. I have had that testimony confirmed to me over and over again as I have lived the commandments that God has placed before us. I have also received a testimony that Joseph Smith was called to be a prophet on the earth just as the ancient prophets of old had been called. I know that he saw God the Father and Jesus Christ in that grove of trees. I know that through the power of translation the Book of Mormon was brought about. I know that it is the word of God. I know without a shadow of a doubt that this church, the "Mormon" church, is the true church of God and I invite everybody everywhere to read the Book of Mormon and find out for yourselves if it is true. Because if that is true than Joseph Smith is a prophet of God and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church of God. 

How I live my faith

I live my faith by my life. The biggest impact we can ever have on anyone is to set an example for them. Actions truly speak louder than words!

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Three steps to knowing if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true. 1. you need to have a desire to know the truth 2. read from the Book of Mormon 3. pray to your Heavenly Father asking Him if what you are learning is true. If you do all these things with a sincere heart, real intent and faith in Jesus Christ then the truth will be manifested unto you by the power of the Holy Ghost. You may have experienced feelings of peace, hope, comfort, or happiness as you’ve read. If so, you have already felt the Holy Ghost telling you that these things are true. Show more Show less
