Hi I'm Matt

I am originally from Layton, Utah. My wife and kids have lived in Utah, Tennessee, Virginia and Oklahoma.

About Me

I love spending time with my family, attending my kids sporting and theater events as well as just hanging out. with them. I like cycling and playing chess in my free time.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a home with a Mormon mother and a Baptist father. I attended both denominations in my early youth and enjoyed aspects of each. When I turned eight I made the decision to be baptized in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My dad supported that decision. I served a two year mission in Brazil which was a tremendous experience for me as a Mormon and as a person. I'm active in the Mormon faith because that is what I believe God wants for me and living the teachings of the church make me a better person.

How I live my faith

My faith is more than just what I do, it is who I am. I am a counselor to the bishop in our ward (our local congregation) and work extensively with our youth. I love to teach the gospel to children of all ages. I try to visit all of the new families that move into our neighborhood (Mormon or not) and welcome them to the area. I enjoy working, playing and living the gospel here in Kaysville, Utah.
