Hi I'm Matt Vanderwalker

I was born into the church but I still had to find the truth for myself.

About Me

I'am a plumber by trade. I have been married for 11 years to a beautiful and spiritual woman. We have 2 daughters 9 and 6.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a member of the church definitely influences the way I live my life. As a child I never really understood the reason for going to church. As I grew up and started to prepare for a mission at the age of 19 I realized I needed to know why I was going and what I was going to be teaching. I studied and read the book of Mormon and took the challenge of praying about it. I knelt down the night I finished the book, and without any feelings of good or bad I prayed. At that moment of uttering is the book true a feeling overcame me to assure me that it was in fact true. At that moment the seed was planted. I had to now continually strengthen and nourish those feelings. I know The Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints is true. That is why I am a Mormon

How I live my faith

I strive every day to do what is right. Sometimes I fall short but I turn to the savior for guidance and forgiveness.
