Hi I'm Matthew

I am from southern utah. I love being outside and I love playing sports. I am currently in Winnipeg Canada and love it

About Me

I am the youngest of four boys. I loved growing up with my brothers and they helped me a lot by their example. I grew up in the military and we moved around a few times until I was 11. We finally settled in Southern Utah. Although people changed and the home changed, the church always stayed the same. It has been a great blessing for me to be raised in a home where I learned about my savior and his love for us. In high school I played football and I wrestled. I am hoping to go to school and become a Chiropractor. I am currently in Winnipeg Manitoba Canada. Many people know it as winterpeg manisnowba.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and always knew that it was true. I have read the Book of Mormon and I have prayed and asked Heavenly Father if it is true. I know that each one of us can gain a testimony of it by reading it and praying about it. That is why I have given up 2 yrs of my life. So that others can experience the same happiness that I have felt in my life. I have noticed too many blessings in my life from being a member of this church that I can't deny it. I have also noticed changes in lives of people around me and seen happiness come to all sorts of people. The first step is to open your heart and allow it to help you. The church makes bad men good and good men great. It is amazing to see people make promises with God and to see the change that comes into their lives when the go through that process. I have been through the repentance process. I do it all the time because I am not perfect and I make mistakes but I have been able feel like I am forgiven of the wrongs and the sins which I have made and done

How I live my faith

I served as a scout master for the 11 year old scouts.I try to be the best example that I can be. Sometimes it is hard but I have noticed that as I rely on Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ I can overcome my challenges. I do my best to live worthy to return to live with my family and my Heavenly Father. I am currently serving a 2 year service mission for my church in Winnipeg Canada. People ask me why I am in cold Canada from Utah. "I leave my family for two years so that others can be with theirs forever". Although I am not perfect I am constantly trying to improve and to become Christlike. I am far away from my end goal but I do my best and that is all that Heavenly Father asks of us.
