Hi I'm Matthew

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Matthew and I have a great life. I work, am a graphic design student, and have a wonderful, beautiful wife from Peru. She's the love of my life. I love art, reading, and dogs. I've lived in Mexico and learned Spanish there.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I love the church. It's teachings fill me life with hope and peace. I know my Savior lives and has atoned for my sins. I know my Heavenly Father loves me and that we are all His children. It all makes sense, more than any other philosophy I've seen in the world.

How I live my faith

I try to live a balanced life, letting the gospel influence each aspect, whether at home, work, or school. A religion only lived on Sundays is not very powerful.

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

With all the churches that sprung up after Jesus's life, being so different from what he had established, there was a lot of confusion. Knowing they couldn't all be true, a boy named Joseph Smith humbly asked the Lord and received an answer, learning that the true church wasn't on the earth, and he was prepared to become a prophet and organize the church once more.
