Hi I'm Ammon Matthews

I'm from Boise, Idaho. I am currently serving a mission in the Saint George, Utah Mission. I play ultimate frisbee. I'm a mormon

About Me

I have completed two years of college at BYU-Idaho. I play ultimate frisbee and basketball. Ulitmate frisbee is my favorite sport. I love playing it whenever I get the chance. Maybe someday make it onto the USA team. My family consists of nine kids. I am the third oldest and I would not change anything about my family. I love them so very much. I am currently serving a mission in the Saint George, Utah Mission. It is amazing.

Why I am a Mormon

 I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for many reasons. As I have grown up I thought that I always had to be perfect because in the scriptures it says we are to be. I thought that is the way it should be or I had no chance in this life. No one is perfect and through the teachings I have been taught by going to church I have learned and believe that I can be forgiven of the sins that I commit and have the ability to be saved in the last days with everyone else that returns and comes unto Christ through the restored gospel.

How I live my faith

Right now in my life I am serving as a missionary for two years. Prior to coming out on a mission I was a student at BYU-Idaho. I had several positions in which I did all that I could to serve the people around me and full the responsibility that was given me. I read my scriptures every day and know that as I do so my faith in Jesus Christ will continue to increase and grow. Prayer is such a vital part of our day. As I continue to pray morning, night and any other time that I feel like i need the help of my Father in Heaven I am able to develop that relationship with Him and feel the love that He has for me. As I go to church every week and am able to learn and grow through the Spirit that is there. I am also able to partake of the sacrament. The Sacrament being an important part and such a sacred and spiritual experience helps me to focus on Jesus Christ and the ability that I have to become like him some day. By doing this things consistantly I am a happier person and am able to see the difference that it makes in my life.
