Hi I'm Matthew

I was born and raised in Bountiful, Utah. I play soccer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play soccer! I have played for fifteen years, for high school and club teams. My favorite soccer team is Chelsea FC is England; I have been a huge fan since I was little. I love table tennis and I am pretty good at it! I am going to the University of Utah on a full scholarship for academics. I plan on being a lawyer after I study business as an under-grad. I have four siblings and two wonderful parents. We own a cabin, and I enjoy riding ATVs and snowmobiles while we are there!

Why I am a Mormon

Many people would tell me that I am a Mormon simply because I was born and raised within the LDS faith. This isn't the case, however. I have asked myself the hard questions and struggled with a measure of doubt, as does anyone. However; after study of Christ's ministry and his teachings, I have concluded that the LDS church is in fact the very same church that The Lord established on the earth two thousand years ago. I am a Mormon because I know that it is God's church and I believe that the only way to salvation is through obedience to commandments of God and also by completing saving ordinances. That is why I am a Mormon, because the LDS church is the only church that completes all of the ordinances that are necessary for the salvation of the human soul.

How I live my faith

I have had several callings. I have been the president of several youth groups within the LDS church, where I have helped to coordinate activities as well as look out for the needs of the other members of the groups. I have been a home teacher, which means that once a month I would go into a different member's house from my ward and teach them about the gospel, as well as look out for any needs they had and for any service opportunities that presented themselves to me. I am currently serving in the Australia Sydney South mission, teaching people about the LDS faith and inviting them to come unto Christ.
