Hi I'm Matt

I grew up in Washington. I am a competitive swimmer and runner at Pacific Lutheran University and I am studying Physical Therapy.

About Me

I am a student at a 4 year University in Washington. I participate in Cross Country, Swimming, and Track at my University. I am studying Physical Therapy. I have been playing piano for about 15 years now. I served my Mormon mission in Sao Paulo, Brazil where i learned to speak portugese fluently. i have since been practicing french. I enjoy fantasy fiction with a passion. With fantasy fiction i love series on TV with really good storylines such as Lost and Heroes. When im not reading college text books i like to read Harry Potter, Wheel of Time, Lord of the Rings, and other fantasy series. I love most kinds of music but i particularly love the piano. I most like show tunes such as themes from movies and rag time. Scott Joplin and Claud de'Busey would have to be my favoirte compossers.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because it makes too much sense to be false. I grew up in the Mormon church and haveing grown up with the doctrine around me it made it very easy to develop an understanding of God. I always had a belief in God and knew there was more beyond what i could physically prove and i decided in my teenage years to put it to the test. As i learned more and more and aplied my learning of God i noticed how better to understand the Holy Ghost. The more i have grown to understand the more it has benefitted my life both temporally and spiritually. The farther i go and the more i grow to know about this church the more i come to realize its undoubtful truth. What has given me the strongest belief in this church isnt anything anyone has ever told me. It isnt anything i have ever read about it or heard about. There is somthing more to it, and you can feal it. It is the one and only true church.

How I live my faith

Since i goto a University that has fewer then 10 members of my church I get the opportunity to live my faith in the presence of those who don't. Outside of this i am responsible for all the activites for my local congregation. i organize dances of which i am the DJ as well as a weekly get together we have at the church. besides this local responsability i am responsible for a large event that takes place once a year which brings all of the young single adults of my church together to learn various gosple principles, play various games, and of course have a big dance. at my local congregation i also will ocassionaly teach during some of our gosple lessons.

What is faith?

Faith simply said is the belief in somthing you cannot see. It is a principle of logic to believe that the sun will come up tomorrow due to the evidence you have that it came up every other day of you life. Faith also is a principle of action. to have faith in somthing must be followed by action and word. It lastly is somthing that grows. As more confidence in the unkown is continuley confirmed so does ones faith in the given subject. Show more Show less
