Hi I'm Matthew Hale

I have lived in Mesa, AZ for most of my life. I will serve a mission in the Little Rock, AR area. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated high school in 2013. Starting my Junior year, I have worked in retail for two years. I am interested in a career in engineering. After I return from my mission I plan to attend Arizona State University for a degree in Industrial Engineering. I am interested in many other things, such as photography, model building, computer programming, robotics, cycling, weight lifting, American history, and math.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that belonged to the church, but I have chosen to remain a member and become converted to the gospel after studying the scriptures and learning for myself that the LDS Church is true by asking Heavenly Father in prayer. He has taught me through the spirit that this is His true church on the earth.

How I live my faith

I attend church every Sunday and read the scriptures every day. I do my best to keep all of the commandments, and I see the many ways that this blesses my life. I spend time helping people in my ward with my talents and abilities. Including the older single women in my ward that are unable to do things that I myself can do for them. I try hard to set an example for those around me. I want to be a positive influence in their lives and never do anything to bring them down.
