Hi I'm Matt Griffeth

I'm from Marietta, Georgia. I love sports and movies. I am a married student and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Matt and I love to play all kinds of sports, especially basketball, soccer and volleyball. My favorite kinds of movies are Disney movies. I was in Argentina for two years being a missionary. I am now fluent in Spanish. I love to have a good time. I am married to a wonderful woman and now have a baby on the way. I love my wife more than anything and she always helps me to be a better man. I go to school at LDS Business College in Salt Lake City.

Why I am a Mormon

Well, I am a Mormon because I was born into the church. I never really knew if it was the right church to be in. I was one of those members that would just go to church just to go, not really wanting to. But something that changed my life was deciding to go on a two year mission, which I mainly did because of my parents. But as I was in the missionary training center to be able to learn the basics of spanish, I started to really wonder why I was there, so I decided to figure everything out. I started to read and pray about the Book of Mormon, which is one of the main things one has to do to figure out if the church is true. I was able to find out the answer to the question that I had. It was something that I could feel more than find or hear. I felt something very real, and I know that it was the spirit telling me that the book is true. That knowledge helped me throughout my two years of being in Argentina and where I currently am in my life.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by doing all the things the church wants us to do. Something that I like to do is to do service. service is a good act without being paid. sometimes I wonder why I do it but after its all over with I just feel good and I am happy that I had sone it. In the church, there are a lot of different ways that we can serve. That is one reason why I love this church so much. Helping those who need it is just amazing and I wish I could do it all the time. Another thing that I try to do as much as I can to live the gospel is teaching those who are interested in learning of the church. The best way that I can spread the gospel is by living its teachings and being an example to those around me.
