Hi I'm Mat

I'm a returned missionary, a factory worker, a brother, and a Mormon.

About Me

 I am an avid outdoorsman. I love mountain biking, hiking, and camping. I am a single, soon to be college student. Scouting is one of my passions in life. I grew up in small town Illinois.

Why I am a Mormon

Before I was born, my great-grandmother decided to join the mormon church. Although I was born into this faith, I now have a firm belief in it and I know that I am in the right place. When I was about 16 I was wondering if what my family had been teaching me was correct, that is I wanted to know what this church God's church. As a result, I went to the source of all truth-God. I knelt down and asked God in the name of Jesus Christ if the church I was in was right. I remember feeling a great comfort and peace come into my heart. At that moment, the answer was clear. I needed to continue with the church of my youth and put trust in God that didn't lie and that he will not change. And now the church is such a strength to me and my family. We know who we are-children of our Father in Heaven. And, we know where we will go-to be with our Father in Heaven as a family together forever. This I know because of the knowledge God gave me when I wanted to know and was willing to listen in my youth.

How I live my faith

 I try and live my life as our Savior Jesus Christ would live. I read the scriptures and pray daily to seek answers to questions and to communicate with my Father in Heaven. I visit those who have lost their way, or have chosen paths that are not the way to happiness. Attending the mormon services really make my week. Each congregation has great love for all people, which to me is simply amazing and also keeps me coming back.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

We can increase our faith in Jesus Christ by understanding better who he is and what he has done. By knowing that he is a perfect being that never changes or lies and that he has always dealt with His children the same, then we may put our full trust and faith in Him. When we understand who he is and what he has done we will increase our faith in Jesus Christ.  Show more Show less
