Hi I'm Matt.

I'm an English Major with the goal of one day being a Professor. I'm an Editor and Copywriter, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am probably one of the most different people you will ever meet. Right now, I am going to college to pursue a degree in English with the main goal of eventually becoming a College Professor. My main interests involve writing, animation, and music. In my free time, I love to get outside and participate in activities like disc golf and running. I also enjoy playing different video games; mainly games that involve role-playing or action. Being an English Major, I of course enjoy reading and enjoy books that are suspenseful and have great character development. When it comes to hanging out with people, I basically enjoy anything. I could simply sit down and chat with someone for hours and have a good time just doing that. I try to see the best in people, and I'm generally very easy-going.

Why I am a Mormon

As far as religion goes, I have gone back and forth between being an Agnostic and Mormon the majority of my life. I was born to an inactive Mormon mother who still has a great testimony and an Atheist father. It was rather odd growing up in that environment, and I was never really fully immersed in the church, despite the fact that I was born into it and have been a member my entire life. I was a somewhat active Mormon through high school but then slowly became inactive as a result of the constant debates going on in my head between religion and science. As I got older and matured, I started to see that religion and science really have nothing to do with each other and that they both serve entirely different purposes. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is not solely meant to show us our origin and exactly where we came from and when that all took place, although that is definitely interesting information. It is meant to show us how to best attain peace in our lives through service of the Lord. Throughout having crazy experiences that are too incredible to be coincidental and hearing about even crazier ones, I came to a realization that our church is the true church chosen by our Heavenly Father. The Book of Mormon is truly a blueprint of how we must live our lives and serve our Lord, Jesus Christ, in these last days, and I suggest that everyone should read and ponder it day by day.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending Church and helping other people in coming close to the Lord. Of course, I do not directly do it for them, but I try to help them get on the right path. I also love participating in service projects and home teaching fellow members to feel the spirit of Christ.
