Hi I'm Matt

I love flying and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Matt and I do a lot of different things. I love playing all sports from Football to golf and everything in between. I also love going to the lake and wake boarding and just hanging out on the water. I love hanging out with friends and family. I actually come from a decent sized family, with seven of us total. I'm the second youngest with three older siblings. I'm currently going to college, getting my pilot's license and working full time so I'm a pretty busy guy.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being Mormon! I love that I belong to a church that helps me come closer unto Christ, which helps me experience true happiness. I love the Book of Mormon. I love the Bible. I love how, together, they teach us more about our Savior Jesus Christ. I love my Heavenly Father. I love the relationship I have with Him. I'm so grateful for the Love that I feel from Him. I know that He is there. I know that He knows me. I know that He loves me and because of that I try to follow Him more carefully everyday. I know all of this because I have exercised faith in Him and have felt the confirming power of the spirit testify to my heart that it is true. There is nothing in this world that can take that knowledge away from me because it was not the world who gave it. I want all who ever read this to know that if you are not sure if what i am saying is true, then pray and ask your Heavenly Father if it is and He will tell you. By so doing, you will feel His love and not doubt.

How I live my faith

I grew up in a place where there weren't many Mormon's like myself at school or on sports teams so I experienced a lot of different responses from people when they learned about what I believe. Some were good, but some were also bad but I learned that it was through those bad responses that really challenged me to come to a greater understanding of what I really believed. Luckily, I had a good foundation of support from family and friends so it really helped me through it. I also spend some time each week going to church and learning more about my Heavenly Father. I absolutely love that special time because I'm able to come closer to Him with friends and family and experience true happiness with those I love. I've learned that my church experience becomes so much more special though when I strive to apply the principles I learn on Sunday all throughout the week.
