Hi I'm Matt

I grew up in Star Valley Wyoming. I am a football player, horse trainer, and I m a Mormon

About Me

I grew up in Star Valley Wyoming, AKA God's country. I wouldn't trade growing up in a small town for anything. On the weekdays life was filled with the joy of being horse back with friends in the outdoors. On friday night I had the great pleasure of representing my family and my community on the football field. After high school I put my mission papers in to serve the Lord for two years. I am now a missionary in Laguna Beach Calf. its an area of the Carlsbad mission. I have been out on my mission for 16 months, time is flying by so fast it feels like a dream. Serving the Lord and the people here have been the most rewarding time of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because its the true church of Jesus Christ. I was born into the church, and was raised in a LDS dominant area. So going to church when I was growing up wasn't a hard choice because its what everyone did. There came a point in my life when I had to decide if I was going to play college football or serve a mission. I spent a lot of time in fervent prayer to our Heavenly Father asking him if the church was true, and if I needed to serve a mission. I got my answer that it was true and I needed to serve a mission. The church has been such a blessing in my life and bringing people closer to their savior and seeing them feel peace and comfort through the Atonement is true happiness.

How I live my faith

I live each day by trying to apply the Atonement in my life. I am far from perfect but as I find peace and comfort though the Atonement I find my life coming closer to Christ.
