Hi I'm Matt

I'm a father of five. I'm a supply chain guy. I love to work with my hands and make things. I enjoy sports.

About Me

I am the tenth of eleven children. My work is in the supply chain discipline of an international computer company. I've lived in Indonesia, Chile and a few different states in the US. I played lacrosse through college and now enjoy it by coaching my kids' teams. I enjoy making things, especially through woodworking and gardening (though I'm still learning how to do both!). I love my family, both immediate and extended. That is where most of my time is spent.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel has brought blessings beyond count to myself and my family. The truth of it's principles and teachings are so evident and real to me through my life and what I have seen in others' lives. I have also felt the personal communication from the Lord in my heart that this is His church and shows the path to return to him.

How I live my faith

I live the principles Christ taught to the best of my ability. That usually means serving other people. Within the church organization I have worked in missionary positions, teaching the youth, congregation leadership, scouting, teaching adult classes and many other areas. Right now I work organizing activities and conferences for youth in a multi-city area that includes nine different congregations.
