Hi I'm Matt Schofield

Lived in Utah my whole life. I am currently serving a mission in manchester, england. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

l have graduated high school. I love the outdoors. I would live in the mountains if I could. Love to go fishing and camping with friends, family, or by myself where I find peace and a place to just think. I am blessed with an amazing family that has raised me in this church and that supports me in everything I do. I love the temple. I try to spend as much time there as I can. I am currently serving a mission for our church in Manchester, England from August, 2014 to August, 2016.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon and I am proud of it. This gospel has changed my life for the good and will continue to do so exponentially as long as I keep the commandments and follow the counsels of our prophet. I know this church is the true church of God. I have read the Book of Mormon and I know without a doubt it is true and that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and he translated it correctly and was God's instrument in restoring this church on the earth. The spirit that I have felt throughout various experiences is amazing and I strive to have it with me at all times. I know that every person on this earth has a purpose and is a son/daughter of a loving Heavenly Father who knows each and everyone of us. He cares about us more than anything. I know that Jesus Christ came to the earth and lived a perfect life. I know that he suffered for my sins and for the sins of every person to live on this earth. He has been through everything we will ever go through so when times get tough, all we need to do is turn to Him and he will help us get through anything. With Him, anything is possible.

How I live my faith

Christ lived a perfect life. The more I study and learn about him, the more I want to become like him. I try to develop all of the attributes that make Christ who he is. My faith has grown so much as I have tried to develop these attributes. I am trying my hardest to serve and teach the people in Manchester. The gospel of Jesus Christ has had such a huge impact on my life. It has brought me and my family so much happiness. I want to help other people experience this same joy in this life and in the life to come.
