Hi I'm Matt

I love to mountain bike, but i only go downhill. and.... I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving in the Minnesota Minneapolis mission, working to bring God's children closer to Jesus Christ. I grew up in Utah. I love anything to do with the mountains. Such as Biking, snowboarding, hiking or camping. I believe God's creations were meant to be enjoyed and appreciated, and nature is one of those creations i love so much. I have an amazing family, and friends that mean everything to me. I believe everyone of us are children of our Father in heaven, and that we should see each other that way. Everyone deserves love and respect, regardless of your race, class, religion or gender. I love my life, I love Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a Mormon family, but I didn't know it was right until I decided to find out for myself if it was true. I know that the only way to know if this church is true is through studying the Book Of Mormon and asking our Father in heaven. Thats what I did, and that's why I'm a Mormon. It is the restored church of Jesus Christ once again established on the earth, and it helps me to know what truly matters in this life, why I am alive on this earth, and the eternal plan God has layed out for each of us. I am a Mormon because knowing and living my faith has brought me closer to Christ than i ever thought I could be. It is everything to me.. I know true happiness comes by devoting your life to the things that last throughout eternity.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to better myself, and seek ways I can become like our example, Jesus Christ. We are here on Earth to Learn, grow and progress as God's children, and trying to keep that purpose and perspective in mind helps me decide what truly matters, and what doesn't.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Matt
God is evident in everything around us. The earth and it's beauty, spaceor nature in any form. The fact that we are alive, and here today, the scriptures and writings of inspired and enlightened people. there are many things, but what makes me sure above all things is the relationships, connections and bonds of love that can exist between human beings. Those type of emotions could not have come from evolution. The fact that we have emotions at all is evidence of divinity within each of us. We come from a divine source, and we are sons and daughters of a loving God who wants us to be as happy as possible. It is through the family and friendships of love that we attain that happiness.
