Hi I'm Matthew

I am currently growing up in the U.S. I am a high school student and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I play a LOT of video games. I'm a brother to 6. I plan to go off to college after high school and hopefully a full mission. I joined the church after several months. I prayed and went to sacrament meeting. It was a scary decision. I was afraid of stopping bad habits. I did it though. At first I didn't notice the progress but it was there. Heck because of the friend that helped me I don't even bite my nails anymore! I am definitely happy I gave it a shot and I'm definitely happier now than before.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it's true. The hardest part is finding that out for yourself. I prayed and fasted. I had a lot of help from missionaries and friends. If you are reading this it's for a reason. I don't know what reason but there is definitely one. I got a Book of Mormon about two years prior to my baptism. I wasn't a very good person. I actually teased the guy that was nice enough to give it to me. I met with missionaries on Mormon.org/chat (check it out they've some awesome people). It wasn't easy and I faltered a lot but once I Had that seed of faith it grew. It's still only a seedling but it's getting there. Even if you don't believe I invite you to investigate and visit The Church. You may not believe but you'll meet really kind and diverse people. I can testify that this church is true and that God is real. I leave this with you in the name of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

It's hard to live the way I should. I struggle keeping track of my actions and thoughts but I try. I am currently only participating in sacrament meetings but I hope to soon be able to join the activities.
