Hi I'm Matt

Im a wilderness survivalist, animal defender, and a Humanitarian. My heart is in Ireland and Scotland and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Im Matt, im from the beautiful state of Utah. Im the youngest of 5 boys and love my family. I love music and was in a hardcore band called Just For The Record for 5 years, I play the bass. I also LOVE animals and belive they deserve mad respect. I have had the oppertunity to see some amazing parts of the world and do humanitarian work for some of those less fortunate. I also enjoy survival skill and have done 28 day courses surviving out in the wild. I want to be a therapist for young people when im all grown up.

Why I am a Mormon

Im a Mormon simply because it makes me happy, and it makes sense. I did not always have a firm testimony, and there were times, and im sure will be times, when I have doubted. But, what keeps me going through it all is Jesus Christ. His name, his face, his example is something I would never be able to deny. Worshiping him through this Gospel has brought me satisfaction and peace nothing else could. The Book of Mormon and the words of modern prophets have especailly taught me more about our Savior. I know that the words they speak are true because of the way they make me feel. Ultimatly, I am a Mormon becaue the Holy Spirit told me to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Currently I live my faith by serving a mission in Scotland and Ireland. So far I have serves in Belfast, Edinburgh (Dalkeith), Sligo, and Paisley. I absolutly love my mission and have learned so much from it. I enjoy missionary work because you get to see people become what Heavenly Father would want them to be. Everyone around us needs Christ in their life, wheather they realize it or not. Seeing some one let Chirsts love into their heart brings me more joy then anything else could. I also love this work because of the love you have for others. Being a set a part representive of our Lord, ive had expirences when I have felt an intense love form some one I never though I would. And in that moment I get a glimpse of how God must love me, and everyone else.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Nope, but your totally should! Men have a Preisthood responsibility to serve and if they want to honor their Preisthood they must. Sisters Arent under that same obligation but I would encourage them to serve just as much as I would an Elder. Show more Show less
