Hi I'm Matt

I grew up in Utah. I found the gospel for myself when i took a leap of faith and beacuse of that, I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am currently 19 years old. Ive attended a few semesters of College but ive never lived away from home. I love snowboarding, singing/playing music, and drawing (even though i may not be the best at it).

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in Utah where most people are primarily Mormon. I always went to church, but i never went because i wanted to. When i turned 19, i had the option to go serve a mission. Being in the area that i was, it felt almost expected to serve a mission. There was alot of pressure on me at the time and i needed help. I desperately tried to get away so that i could find out for myself what i needed to do. I talked to my parents, and they told me to take a leap of faith. I decided I'd trust them and so i began to read. I read and i read but nothing seemed to make a big difference. One day i prayed with all of my strength for a sign, anything. Just to know what i should do. I got my answer through an unsuspecting family member that was influenced to say the things i needed to hear. I know that this church is true, and i know that if you just take a leaf of faith and try for yourself, you'll see that this is the place to be to be happy. I know that the lord hears every prayer and will answer them. It may not be immediately or in the fashion that you wanted it to be but it will be in the best way for you in the long run.

How I live my faith

I teach the 4 year old kids in my church, They are a blast to teach the gospel to. I also am a Home teacher, i Home teach 2 families that i have grown quite fond of because of this calling.

What is faith?

Matt
Faith was a little difficult for me at first, but my dad gave me a great example of it. When it is night and the sun isn't up, how do you know that the sun will come up the next day? You may not think about it necessarily, but you already have a faith of your own. You have faith that the sun will come up, but you never really know until it comes up and lights the sky. Its also like a seed, when you plant it you have faith that it will grow but you'll never know until you can see it grow. But like a seed, you have to nurture it otherwise it will die. You must work with and believe in your seed of faith and then just like the sun, you'll see it light up your life. Show more Show less
