Hi I'm Matthew Ballard

I'm a water polo player, I love the outdoors, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy the outdoors and spending time being active. I love camping, swimming, boating, riding quads, water skiing, tubing, and the occasional sky diving adventure. I love to live life to its fullest and see all that life has to offer. I love finding old family names to take to the temple and making home made bread! boom!

Why I am a Mormon

The church and the gospel are my own personal oasis in life. Going through school and work everyday builds up stress in life. For me the church is my way to relax and to calm my self. it gives me direction and guidance when i need it most. it has become a center point in my life and i know that's what i'm working towards. The Church provides loving support and with it I can grow stronger everyday!

How I live my faith

Church is not just a one day activity. we can live our faith and show others everyday of the week. i find joy and happiness in serving others and making some one else smile. if i can make just one person smile who's having a bad day, it makes mine all the better. I am currently serving a mission in Montreal Canada, Parlez-vous français?

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Matthew Ballard
oh no no no... the basis of our church is founded upon the teachings of Jesus Christ, which are, loving our fellow man, helping others, and compassionate service. There are many things our church does in helping other in humanitarian work. Feeding the hungry, education and litteracy programs, welfare farms, bishop`s store house. The list goes on and on.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon Temples? What goes on in Mormon Temples?

Matthew Ballard
In our church temples are really the house of the Lord. In them we accomplish ordinances which have the power to bind families together, not only in this life but for the life to come. Secret is not the right word to use when describing the temple... sacred in the best way to describe what happens. Temples provide a place of peace and comfort in loud and distracting world.
