Hi I'm Matt

I am from Holladay, Utah. I'm a musician. I love sports. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I have always had a love for music. I've been playing the bass for about 11 years (the double bass and then the guitar as well) and before that I played the piano. I'm part of a group called the Young Ambassadors at BYU, and we basically perform all over the world! I love sports. My favorites are snowboarding, golf, and lacrosse in that order. I am from a family of 4 children and a dog. I'm the second oldest. I am attending Brigham Young University.I want to go into the medical field, but I haven't honed in on a major yet. I had the great privilege of being a missionary in England for two years!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have come to know that Jesus Christ is the Saviour of the world through reading and praying about the Book of Mormon. I grew up in the church but I came to a point in my life where I needed real guidance and direction. My life was great, but i had some serious decisions to make regarding my future and I didn't know what to do. Thanks to the counsel I received from my parents, I turned to the scriptures, and to God. The things that I read about Jesus Christ and his atonement in the Book of Mormon changed my life. I prayed and asked about what direction I should take in life and my prayer was answered in a marvelous way. Since then I have been building my testimony through daily prayer, church attendence, and daily reading of the scriptures. I went from relying on the testimonies of others to strengthening a testimony that was my own. I know that Jesus Christ is my Saviour because of the Book of Mormon. I know that it is true scripture and it comes from a loving Father in Heaven. I also know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. I know that Jesus Christ lives and that I will one day meet him again.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by always trying to be a light for other people in the way I act and in what I say. I always try to walk the path that the Saviour invites us to walk so many times throughout the scriptures. I also am part of a group at BYU called the young Ambassadors, and one of the main focusses of the group is to share the light of the gospel through music. I love bringing hope into the lives of others through my talents. I love to read the scriptures. I really like the New Testament epistles of Paul. My favourite book however, is the book of Alma in the Book of Mormon. It teaches so much about Jesus Christ and his Atonement.
