Hi I'm Matt Healey

I grew up in Utah. I love soccer. I love to travel. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I served my mission in Toronto Canada and loving it! The people in Toronto are amazing and I loved the opportunity to share my love for the gospel with them. I love to play all sports, but my favorite is soccer. I love to design things, and would one day love to start my own business. I am currently a student at the University of Utah studying business.

Why I am a Mormon

I have lived in this church my whole life but I cannot imagine what I would do without it. I have a strong belief in Christ and our Heavenly Father and I know that it is only through the Atonement that Christ performed that we can return to be with them. This is why I continue to go to church and follow our living prophet. I know that the Lord loves everyone and this helps me to continue to endure and choose the right.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being faithful in my church responsibilities, such as visiting my neighbors and volunteering for service. I love to see people at church and I love to go there to learn more about Jesus Christ and his Gospel. I served a two year mission for the church and am excited to continue to share our message with the world. I love to preach the gospel and help others to find that thing that is missing in their life.

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Matt Healey
Because God has asked us to. Tithing is used to forward the work of the church, by building churches, temples and spreading the gospel. There is no paid clergy in our church and the money is only used to help the world. I have always paid tithing because I see blessings in my life from it. I know that 100% of my money comes because of God and so it is all I can do to give back that 10% that he asks. Show more Show less

Are Mormons Christians?

Matt Healey
The official name of the church is "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints" We believe in Jesus Christ and as members we try to follow his teachings as best as we can. I know that Christ is the Savior and Redeemer of the world. I know that it is only through him that we can be saved because of his ultimate and infinite sacrifice. Show more Show less
