Hi I'm Matt

I am the father of six. I grew up in Mesa, Arizona. I speak Marshallese. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm Matt. I've been married now almost 18 years and we have 6 kids. My oldest and youngest are boys and I have 4 beautiful girls in between. We have a lot fun doing family things. We love to ride bikes together especially at the beach in California. I'm a trim carpenter by trade and have owned my own business now for the last 6 years. We live in Chandler, Az not far from where I grew up in Mesa. In my free time, I love to play golf or enjoy a baseball game. I served a mission in the Marshall Islands and speak Marshallese.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church but certainly had to come to my own understanding of the gospel and gain a testimony for my self. I remember reading the Book of Mormon for the first time while in college. Through that process and truly seeking the Lord, I came to know of the truth. As I served my mission, my testimony had greater oppurtunities to grow. Throughout my life I have seen miracles happen and can feel my Father in Heaven carrying me through difficult times.

How I live my faith

I love to be in the front row. I love to see others gaining their own testimony. For the past 15 years or so I have served with the Youth in our ward. They have so many things to worry about but see them overcome these things makes me proud to be associated with them. For me, I just try to keep moving forward each day. Some days I struggle but I'm trying to be better each day. I think that is what my Heavenly Father would want me to do.
