Hi I'm Matt

I like to hunt, fish, play sports, I'm a missionary, I love my family and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Matt. I am from Idaho Falls, Idaho. I love to hunting and fishing with my family, especially my dad and my brother. I love spending time with them. I am a huge basketball fan. I have been playing since I was a little kid. My favorite sports teams are The New York Yankees, Utah Jazz, and the 49er's! I served a mission in Arizona and it was the greatest experience of my life so far! I am currently going to college at BYU-I in Rexburg, Idaho. I am going into business. I love to work and give service to others. I like to do crazy things! I like to travel. I have THE best friends in the world and love them all. I love spending time with my family and laughing with them. They are a HUGE part of my life. There is never a boring day around our house! I know that I will be able to be with them forever!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I know that it is the true church restored back onto the Earth today through the Prophet Joseph Smith. It is the same church that Jesus Christ, our Savior, setup while he was here on the Earth. I continue to follow his gospel because it brings me happiness and I know that I can be with my family forever by being married and sealed in the temple with them. I know that this church is true. I know the Book of Mormon and Bible are both true and by living by the things in those books we will come closer to God and Jesus Christ. I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer. He lives and loves us all more than we can comprehend. I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God and that he did see Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ in the flesh. That is why I'm a Mormon

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to be a good example to those around me by doing what is right. Right now I have the great calling of being a full time member missionary. I just served a full time mission in Arizona. I still strive to be a missionary and give service to others as much as i can. I know that the Savior is a great example of serving others. He was always serving others, so that is what I try to do everyday. I strive to follow the counsel that the Prophet gives to the world and the other commandments. I am far from perfect, but that is the great thing about repentance. I know that I can be forgiven of the things I do wrong. I just try to be better than I was yesterday.
