Hi I'm Matthew Woolley

I'm a good ol' Utah boy born and raised! I love hockey,spending time with my family and hiking and batman! and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving an LDS mission in the California Roseville mission and loving every second of it! I grew up in Utah in the suburbs of Salt Lake City, One of the most important things to me is my family, I love them and have so much fun with them! I have one older brother and two older sisters so yes i'm the spoiled youngest child. I have always had a love for sports especially hockey and I love to play and watch it. Since becoming a missionary I have really broadened my horizons and I enjoy a wide array of activities from biking to eating good food to meeting new people. Us missionaries love to talk to everyone we meet! I love being able to serve my Heavenly Father and stand as a disciple of Jesus Christ and declare our bold message that God has once again called a prophet to the earth today! I love just enjoying every second of my life and laughing and having fun because this life is short and it's meant to be enjoyed and the gospel of Jesus Christ makes it even better.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because i know it is the true church of Jesus Christ restored to the earth today! I was born into the church but I became truly converted just after I graduated High School. I found myself at a point in my life where I needed to decide what path to take and it became clear that either I was going to continue going to church or I was going to stop, like anything in this world I decided that the only way I could find out if it was true was to read and truly study for myself, someone once told me to know Shakespeare is the best writer of all time you had to read his writings and it was the same I needed to find out if the Book of Mormon was the wrod of God or not so I read it and I prayed about it and I know it is true 100% and The happiness that has come to me from living the gospel is so wonderful and i'm thankful for the truth I have every single day!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing it with anyone that will listen! I love this gospel and it has brought great joy and happiness to me and my family and I want that for all of my brothers and sisters on this whole planet and so I am serving a mission so that I can bring the joy I feel into others lives if they are willing to accept it, This has been a hard thing for me to do since I generally am not really outgoing but I want to share it so much that I go out of my comfort zone to share with each person I come into conact with!
