Hi I'm Matt Robertson

I grew up Texan! I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have always wanted to dunk a basketball. My pursuit began when I was 1 year old and I got my first "Little Tikes" basketball hoop for my first birthday. I have always had a basketball in my hands... dribbling, shooting, pick up games. Many of those years playing, my dad was Coach. He taught me the game and skills of basketball. I played all through high school, but the "dunk" is ever elusive. But the the thing that has stayed consistent is my dad teaching me. All those years he was teaching me the game and skills of life. Now I am grown. I have freshmen year of college under my belt and I am off to serve the Lord for a two year mission. I know many of the lessons I learned on the basketball court and off, will help me to be a humble and grateful servant of God. I am so thankful for my dad. He is a great man and I admire him in so many ways. I hope to become the kind of man he is. I am thankful for my family and love them so much. I have two beautiful sisters and an awesome kid brother. One day, after I return from my mission, I hope to work with Computer programming. Life is great!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member. That sounds cliche, but it is true. I am grateful for the opportunity to grow up in this gospel and learn about Jesus Christ and how to be like Him. I have gained a testimony of my Savior through living the gospel principles, such as, prayer, fasting, scripture study, seminary, and preparing to become a missionary. Much of my life has been spent preparing for my mission. I am so thankful for the opportunity to serve the people in my mission. I know that when I serve, love and pray for the people I will serve then my their lives are blessed an so is mine.

How I live my faith

I have grown up as a member of the Church. I have been a member all of my life. I am young, but have had many opportunities to serve. Especially last year as a freshmen at BYU. I worked as a teacher and home teacher. It was great to visit with those I home taught and get to know them. I was able to serve and give many blessings. One thing that is worth mentioning, is for my Eagle Project I built a giant sand box for the community ball park. This has been used for years by the younger siblings of those playing soccer and baseball to have fun and play.
