Hi I'm Matthew

I'm a Christian, a missionary, I love music and the outdoors, I love my family and I'm a Mormon!!

About Me

I'm a single guy currently serving full-time as a missionary in the Arizona Tempe Mission, Greatest mission in the World!! Although I'm away from home, my family is still one of the most important things in my life, dont know where I would be without them. I LOVE anything with music, listening to or playing. Growing up I played the saxophone, clarinet, piano, a little bit of drums, and sang in a few choirs. It's been a love of mine ever since. I also enjoy the outdoors, mountain biking especially, Growing up and living in Utah, i get to enjoy that and other outdoor activities like hiking, fishing, camping and skiing.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know this is Christ's church restored to the earth. By applying the Gospel of Jesus Christ in my life, i've been able to find the peace that comes from His Atonement. Although I grew up a member, i've still needed to find my own testimony and know for myself that it is true. Through personal study, thought, and prayer I came to know that the Book of Mormon is true, that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God who restored the church after years of spiritual darkness, and that Jesus Christ is my Savior and stands at the Head of the Church. He speaks to a living modern-day prophet and we can come closer to our Heavenly Father by following his teachings.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith by serving the Lord full-time as a missionary in the Arizona Tempe Mission. I talk to everybody, trying to share His Gospel with as many people as I can. I know that it's the ONLY way we can return to live with our Heavenly Father and our families. As i've seen the lives of those I've taught change for the better, it's strengthened my faith in the Jesus Christ. I know as we live our lives according to His commandments, we can have His Spirit with us, and we can feel the peace and happiness that comes from living His Gospel.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is the word of God. It teaches us how we can come to know of our Savior Jesus Christ and is convincing evidence that Joseph Smith is His prophet. Like the Bible, it was written by prophets in ancient times and preserved for our day. By studying the Book of Mormon AND Bible, we can come to a greater knowledge and understanding of what God wants for us. Show more Show less
