Hi I'm Matthew

I live in Utah. I play numerous sports. I love my Savior. Called to serve in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in Utah my whole life. I play many sports; including football, basketball, baseball, tennis...etc. Some of my favorite hobbies are table tennis, hiking, wake boarding, and snowboarding. I played as Center on my high school football team. I enjoy learning, and gaining as much education as possible. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I have five siblings and I love them so much. They teach me to never give up in life. Something people don't usually know about me is that I love to sing. I played lead role in my school play, and have sung in the school choir for many years. I enjoy the outdoors and love camping.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know with all my heart that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is true. We have the only true church because all the keys of Jesus Christ have been restored to the earth. We have additional scripture, The Book of Mormon, and I know it is true. Like the Bible, it prophesies of Christ, and restores many things that were lost in the many translations of the Bible. It is another account of Jesus Christ in the Americas. I know that God calls latter day prophets in this day in age. Through Joseph Smith, the true Gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored once again. Prophet Thomas S. Monson is the current prophet and I know that he is called of God. He receives guidance from Jesus Christ on how to lead His church in this troublesome world. I'm a Mormon because I believe in hope. I know that God lives. This church gives me something to work towards. It helps me stay on the straight path. It helps me strive to live like Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I enjoy serving others as much as I can. In this church it is stressed so much to serve others like Jesus Christ did. I love finding ways I can help others. It gives me a warm feeling inside every time I help someone in need. I don't drink coffee, alcohol, smoke, or partake of anything harmful to my body. I never deny that I am a disciple of Jesus Christ because I know that he lives.
