Hi I'm Matt

I'm a snowboarder. I'm a Beat-boxer, a ping-pong player. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Idaho, I started working in Potato fields when i was 11 years old, and I love hard work. After I turned 16 I started working for a company called "South Industries" building dome houses all over the United States. My latest job was working for a cruise company named "Royal Caribbean" and "Celebrity Cruises". My favorite things to do are to be with friends, and snowboarding, or both at the same time. I also like to play ping-pong, and I love to beat-box. I have never done it professionally, or in front of a lot of people, but I do plan on maybe trying to join a group or something so that I can get better at it, and maybe one day do it in front of a lot of people. I also love the outdoors, I love to fish, camp, hike, shoot archery, guns, wake board, snow-machine, and pretty much anything outside. I went to college in Idaho for one year, and am currently serving a mission in the Florida Orlando Mission, speaking Spanish.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy. And I love being happy. This Gospel is the most important thing in my life, along with my family, and It has made me a better person. I know that even when life gets hard, that Jesus Christ is always there to help us out, and to be our friend. He will never leave us comfortless. He has helped me in so many ways, and I will forever be indebted to Him. I know that the Prophet Joseph Smith is a true prophet, and also that the Prophet today, President Thomas S. Monson, is a true prophet as well. I know that no matter what we have done in this life, that God is always there, and He wants to help us through the hard times. He is always just a prayer away, and the line is never busy. I think that one of the biggest reasons that I know that this Gospel is true, is because I have felt the love of my Heavenly Father while I read the Book of Mormon, and I have prayed about it, and know that it is scripture from God. If the Book of Mormon is true, then all the rest of this Gospel is true, and I know that it is with all of my heart.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example of the believers. The best way that you can show that you are a follower of Jesus Christ is to try to live your life the way that He did. He went about doing good, and lifting those with feeble knees. We need to do the same. I used to teach the 6 year old kids in Primary at the church, and they were a blast. I also have completed my Eagle scout award, and helped the community out in that way. For my project, i designed and made a swing that is wheelchair accessible, and installed it at a school in Idaho named Journy's. I love helping and serving people, and feel the Spirit when I do. I know that the statement, "when you are in the service of your fellow being, you are only in the service of your God" is true.
