Hi I'm Matt Whiting

I am from Utah. Just returned home from the Missouri Independence Mission and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have spent most of my life in Utah. I am an eagle scout. I love playing sports, lacrosse, basketball, football, volleyball, you name it. I love being active. I always love being outdoors and in the mountains. I find the most joy in the service of others and seeing their joy.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I have felt the Saviors love in the hardest times of my life and I know he loves me even though I make mistakes. I know that through the Plan of Salvation that I can live with my Father in Heaven once again and that I am sealed to my family for eternity and that I can have a family of my own in the future. I know that Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon. I have been to the Sacred Grove and know without a shadow of a doubt that he saw the Father and the Son there. I know the Book of Mormon to be the word of God and it has changed my life. I am so grateful for my Savior and Redeemer, Jesus Christ. I know this is His Church and without Him and His sacrifice, I wouldn't be who I am today.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a fulltime missionary in the Missouri Independence Mission. I love sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others and seeing the Atonement of Jesus Christ work within the people around me. I try to be a friend to everyone.
