Hi I'm Matthew Lake

Im a pre-missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints I love volleyball and dogs and Im a Mormon

About Me

I was born and raised in Tempe Arizona and I have grown to love Arizona. Phoenix Suns fan. I am the youngest in my family of four. I currently attend Arizona State University studying kinesiology. I love to play volleyball.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the church but I would I say that I was converted to the gospel at age 17 when I truly began to feel and understand the atonement of Jesus Christ and the truth of the Book Of Mormon. utilizing the atonement and repenting completely and fully is a indescribable feeling of renewal. In The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints The Book Of Mormon is taught to be the keystone of our religion. I would say that The Book Of Mormon is the keystone to my life. Without The Book Of Mormon My life would would crumble and not go on as I know it today. I would lose close to all direction that I have in my Life. I know that this church is the church of our savior and redeemer, Jesus Christ. The Savior suffered and died for all of our sins. He also set the example of how we should live our lives. Therefore I am a member of this church to fulling understand the atonement of Christ and live my life like he did. Our Heavenly father has not ceased to communicate with his children. He loves us and wants to speak to us and give us direction in our life. Therefore he has called a modern day prophet to lead and guide us in this day. Heavenly Father gives us this direction through our prophet Thomas S Monson. I know that he is Heavenly Father's Prophet is day are His called Apostles.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by living my life. My faith and my beliefs are such a large part of who I am I cannot live a minute without living my faith as well. I strive each and every day to live my life in the way our savior Jesus Christ has outlined for us. One of the greatest things Christ did in his mortal ministry was service. Therefore I believe one of the greatest things I can here in this life is service. Whether it be volunteer work through an organization or everyday service like helping someone who looks like they may need help. I live my faith by following the example Jesus Christ has set before us.
