Hi I'm Matthew

I am a student, I am a convert southerner, I am a swimmer, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was born into an LDS family in New Jersey. I moved to North Carolina when I was 6. I am the third of four children. I have an older brother, an older sister, and a younger brother. I am a huge sports fan. I love to swim. I am a student at BYU-Idaho. I will be serving a mission in the Colombia Bogota South Mission. I report to the Missionary Training Center in Bogota Colombia on July 13, 2016. I am so excited to serve the Lord and the Colombian people.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a testimony of the Book of Mormon. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a prophet. I know that Christ suffered and died for our sins. I know that, if we follow the commandments, that we can return an live with God. I know that Joseph Smith saw Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ in the Sacred Grove. I love how the church teaches morals and values that help me be happy. I have a testimony that if we are kind and follow the commandments we can be truly happy.

How I live my faith

One way that I live my faith is that I will be putting my schooling on hold to serve the Lord for two years. The decision to serve the Lord was one of the most difficult decisions that I have made but I know that it is what I need and am supposed to do. I have been very blessed in my life, and the least I can do is serve Him for 2 years.
