Hi I'm Matthew

I grew up in Arizona. Big sports fan, I enjoy basketball, football, track, and soccer. I am an AZ Cardinals fan. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Husband to a wonderful wife. Father of one girl and two boys. I enjoy hiking, camping, playing, and watching sports. I enjoy watching movies and reading the occasional book as time permits. I also enjoy technology, guess I am sort of a computer "nerd". I enjoy good old fashion work, and do not mind getting my hands dirty. I am a college graduate, with a degree in Computer Information Systems, Bachelor of Science in Business Administration.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church by loving parents who taught me to love and follow Christ and his teaching. I have seen how the Gospel of Jesus Christ touches and changes lives for the better. I labored two years in Argentina as a missionary and have a great love for the people there. As a missionary, I watched as those being taught listened, questioned, read, and prayed to find out if what they were being taught were true for themselves. As answers came and prayers were answered lives were changed and families were touched. I too had to find out for myself if what I had been taught from a young age were true, a testimony is personal. Through study and prayer and living the the teachings of Christ I have found a great love for our Savior Jesus Christ. The gospel has made me a better person, I do not know what I would do without it, as it has touched my life in ways which are hard to describe.

How I live my faith

I live my faith as best I can, day by day, week by week. I try to be kind to all I come in contact with as we are all sons and daughters of loving Heavenly Parents. I enjoy spending time with my family. I love giving service to others; when in the service of your fellow beings you are only in the service of your God. Giving services brings great peace and comfort and helps me feel closer to my Heavenly Father. I try to follow the example of Christ as best I can. We are all in this journey together, and I love helping others when I can.
