Hi I'm Matt

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've lived in the Midwest and east coast of the United States. No matter where I have lived, my family and the love I have towards them has grown. Having so many siblings makes life so much fun. I am always trying to spend my time in the best way, whether it is flying a Cessna 172, snowboarding down a mountain or just spending time with friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I love my savior Jesus Christ, and I know this is the only church with all the truths of the gospel. I know that in my mind and my heart. I have felt the Holy Ghost testify in my heart. Also, all the truths I learn make sense in my head. I have tried and tested God's promises and found them sure. He is real. He is helping us right now. I am going to stick on Christ's side because I want to do what He asks, help others, and eventually have my own family that I can be confident will always be together, even after death. I can't wait for opportunities to share the gospel to others.

How I live my faith

I'm always trying to live my life in a way that allows the Holy Ghost to be my constant companion. I can definitely agree with Alma that "all things denote there is a God." Everyday of my life I better my relationship with my Heavenly Father. I can see his hand in my life so very often and the gratitude I have for Him turns around any bad feeling I have.

Who chooses the Mormon prophet?

God has always had prophets that speak His words. The Bible and Book of Mormon are full of them. Having a true and living prophet is very important because they lead Christ's church on the earth. Naturally, it would make sense that since it is Christ's church, He should choose the prophet. This is done through revelation, or simply: God speaking to his children. The twelve apostles pray very hard after the previous prophet has died to ensure that the most senior of them is the next prophet and president of the church. When they have all felt that that is the way of the Lord, it is done. Show more Show less
