Hi I'm Matthew
I'm a software developer, a student, and a blogger
I work full-time as software developer and go to school to pursue my computer science degree. I spend my few minutes of spare time blogging, playing the piano, and working on side projects. I am married to the best chef, photographer, and wife in the world.
Simply put, I am "Mormon" because God told me to follow this path. One of the most important tenets of my personal faith is that if I ask with a sincere desire, God will let me know what to do in my life. I prayed and asked him if this was the path I should follow, and He responded in a resounding "Yes." As I've studied the Scriptures, pondered on the messages presented to me by many religions, and sought God's answers through prayer, I have come to know for myself that the Bible and the Book of Mormon are God's word, and that this is the right path.
I made the decision to serve for two years as a full-time volunteer minister and helping hand in Denver, Colorado. It was an amazing two years, and not a day goes by that I do not reflect on the the work I did, the fun I had, and the lessons I learned there. Following my mission, I have volunteered as a youth Sunday School teacher and now serve as assistant pastor to our local Spanish-speaking congregation.
