Hi I'm Matthew J. Bryson

I'm a pianist, powder skiier, and a servant of the Lord. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey! I'm Matt! I'm a native Utahan who can't get enough of the great outdoors Utah offers! I'm convinced Utah has the greatest snow on earth, but am also in love with the red rocks of the south and Wyoming's Grand Tetons. I love to laugh, read, compose piano music, and compete in Ultimate Frisbee! I currently put my constitutional studies degree on hold for two years to serve the Lord, and now I'm blessed to serve as a missionary in the great state of Arizona. I believe the greatest gift anyone can receive is the gospel of Jesus Christ; it makes me so happy to have the opportunity to share it with the world!

Why I am a Mormon

The choice to be a Mormon was made long ago when I entered the waters of baptism. I chose that day to take upon myself the name of Jesus Christ. Although I was baptized years ago, my testimony that this is the true church of Jesus Christ remains alive and active today. It began by reading the Book of Mormon, praying to a loving heavenly father, and patiently waiting for Him to answer my humble prayer. The answer came. Filled with the light and love of Jesus Christ, I have lived my life according to the doctrine of Christ. Faith, Repentence, Baptism, Recieving the Holy Ghost, and Enduring to the End. I promise that God answers prayers, He loves us and desires for our happiness. Search, ponder, and pray; by doing this, I am confident you will find and receive the pure joy and happiness found through the gospel of Jesus Christ. I have, my family has, and it has blessed our lives.

How I live my faith

As a Missionary I am blessed to be able to reach out to others every day in service & love, sharing what I know to be true. A Missionary serves full-time as a representative of the Church of Jesus Christ. My purpose is to help others find and grow a relationship with our loving savior Jesus Christ. I love this opportunity. Helping others increase their faith in the teachings of Christ, as well as His atoning sacrifice, increases my faith, and my understanding of His Gospel. I hope to live my faith with charity, love, integrity, and a determination to serve our Lord to the end. We are the children of God, each of us unique and equally important. We have each been given the freedom of choice, that we may choose to return to live with Him one day.
