Hi I'm Matt

I am an Idaho kid and I love to play sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love striving to make myself better. In high school I was the soccer and tennis captain of my varsity high school teams. I was always looking for ways to help myself improve. I also love being outdoors. I love skiing and I love running outside and I am also an avid disc golfer. I love spending time with my friends and doing new things with them. My friends mean the world to me. My hobbies also include crocheting and playing the guitar and ukulele. I also love singing. In high school I was also involved in a show choir and a men's acapella group. I love music and the messages that are shared through music. I come from a family of eight. I have two sisters and three brothers. My older brother has always been my example and I always want to be like him. I love my family more than anything in the world and we are very close to eachother.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this is my Heavenly Father's plan for me. I feel His love each and every day as I strive to live my life in accordance with His standards. I'm also not perfect which has given me a testimony of my Savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ. I have applied the Atonement in my life and I can testify that it is real. I know that God loves me and that He wants me to return to live with Him again. I also know that the only way to accomplish that is through Jesus Christ. The teachings of Christ that are found in the Book of Mormon and in the Bible help me every day to feel a greater desire to follow the example of my Savior and be a better person. I know that as we accept Christ in our lives and use the blessing of the Atonement, God will help us on our path to return to live with Him.

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving as a missionary for the church. My whole life I have wanted to serve a mission and now the opportunity is finally here. It truly brings joy sharing the message of the restored gospel and serving others. I know the service is what Christ would be doing if He were still here and so I want to serve all those that I possibly can. I know that helping others is the only way to be truly happy.

Are Mormons Christians?

I love Christ and I strive to become like Him each and every day. I know that as a Christian faith we have the honor to represent Him in everything we do and it is an amazing blessing to always strive to follow Him. Show more Show less
