Hi I'm Matt

I grew up in Utah and love the mountains, I am always up there in my free time and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

About me, I love the out doors I am always out there in the summer going on hikes, rock climbing, camping or even long boarding. In the winter im not outside as often but I still go out to go snowboarding, skiing and sledding. I also like to stay indoors and watch movies and play some video games. When im not playing around im going to school to become an engineer, not sure what type I want to go into yet but i do love creating things and I also like math so its a good field for me. At the moment I am serving a full time mission for The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints. So what i wrote above is going to have to wait until im done haha.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon my whole life, now that doesn't mean I always knew these things were true. At first in my early I mainly went to Church because of my parents but as I older I pushed away and saw no reason to go anymore. Through that rough time in my life and from the help of my friends I grew in a desire to really know if this church i true. I started going back to church I started reading the Book of Mormon and praying. Through those simple steps I felt the Holy Ghost I felt more of God's love for me. After that I got my life back in line and dump of some heavy baggage which was weighing me down and i felt so much lighter. Then I had a desire to go and share this with others so I requested to go on a mission for the church and was accepted and now im sharing this joy I felt with others.

How I live my faith

Well write now as a missionary I live my faith by teaching others about the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I go out every day and teach people about how they can come unto there Savior Jesus Christ. There is no other feeling greater than helping some one else become closer to there Father in Heaven and to see how much there life changes when they have God in it.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Matt
We do not worship Joseph Smith now saying that he is a huge person in our religion because he started a new dispensation and restored Christ church back on the earth after it has been lost for hundreds of years. A dispensation is when a Prophet restores Gods authority back on the earth after it has been lost by rejecting the Prophet before them. God has told us that this will be the last dispensation until Jesus Christ comes back. Over all Prsident Gordon B. Hinkley says it perfectly "We worship God our Eternal Father and the risen Lord Jesus Christ". Show more Show less
