Hi I'm Matthew Squassabia

I have lived in Colorado, I am serving a mission in Long Beach California, moved to Vegas and I am joyous to be a Mormon. :)

About Me

I love to dance... and run, and bike, and swim, and well you get the point. If I can move to a beat while doing it I am all for it. Music is a large part of my life, and I don't know what I would do without it. I don't know what I want to be yet, but I am thinking probably a medical doctor of some kind. I know that I can be anything that I set my mind to though and am looking forward to what I can do in the short time that we have to do it. I am serving a mission in long beach California right now and intend to go to BYU Idaho when I get back. Gaming is a large pastime for me and I enjoy hiking and camping in the mountains. My favorite food is a good old fashioned Filet Ming Yon and Movie type has got to be either a comedy or epic.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know of the truth of his restored gospel. It is the way to endless joy and it is the end product of the decisions of all good people. I am Mormon because I know that the fullness of the gospel is found in the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints. Most importantly I am Mormon because there is no greater call in the world than to serve our fellow men and women and I know that the truths that are with me are the greatest service that could be brought to all the world.

How I live my faith

I know that first comes faith in life. It is amazing the things that it brings afterwards. I found my faith in serving and in realizing that the best way to be happy is to make others happy. Like when a good joke is told it builds friendship and love which responds in joy and happiness. I chose to serve to spread joy. I do this because of my faith in Christ and what he did for all of us. He lived a life devoted to serve and even gave his life for us. I know this to be true and intend to do my best to make others have the same opportunity that I did to know my savior. There were times in my life when I was unsure and when I doubted that there was really anyone who could be perfect or even that there is a god out there. I ended up coming to the conclusion that He is there I see him in everyday life. So many times people say that we have no miracles today. I say that they are all around us and are proof of god and Christ. When a mother holds her child or when a family spends time tougher and pushes away the sins of life. These are miracles and are proof enough for me that god is there, and that he has a plan to save every one of us if we will let him.

What is the role of the husband and the wife in the family?

Matthew Squassabia
In a family the husband and wife are both essential parts towards having and raising children. One does not dominate the other and both work togther in unison to help their children to grow up to be good people. The husband is responsible to protect the family and the wife the same, just as each gender fills specific roles naturaly there are undesignated roles that will be fufiled by both husband and wife. These roles are left to be decided by that maried couples choice. Show more Show less
