Hi I'm Matt Skeen

I have been called to serve in the Missouri St. Louis mission. I will be leaving July 2nd and will be speaking English.

About Me

I am the youngest in my family and have one older sister. I just graduated High School and am now preparing to serve an LDS mission in St Louis Missouri. I love to hunt and fish. I grew up playing baseball and still love the sport.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the church, when I was younger I didn't always love going. My dad had been inactive for 20+ years so it was hard on my mom. As I have grown older, my dad has became active and we go to church weekly. My parents were never married in the temple, and that was always one of their goals. In August of 2012 that was fulfilled when they were married in the Logan temple, then later me and my sister were sealed to them for time and all eternity. This was a testimony booster for me. I was about 16 at the time, and didn't know if I wanted to serve mission. With this experience it made me realize that this is the one and only true church. There was no way we could be that happy as a family and for it to be fake. That day was when I decided that I was going to serve a mission and my testimony has only grown since then, as I have prepared to bring those who are searching unto the gospel. I know that the Book of Mormon is the true word of God. It is special and dear to my hear. I know my savior, Jesus Christ, died so that I can return to live with my Heavenly Father again. I know that if we use the atonement our sins will be forgotten and our testimony will be strengthened. I love this gospel and cant wait to share it with others. I say these things in the name of my Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I currently do not hold any callings in the church. Recently I have always been in the presidency in my quorums as I have been growing up. I serve with an open heart to anyone I see is in need of service. I have received my mission call, and cant wait to serve the people of St Louis. I will be heading out to the MTC on July 2nd.
