Hi I'm Matt

I have spent my whole life in Utah. I will be serving a mission for the next two years. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I will be serving a mission in the Chicago West Mission. My whole life I have loved sports and been involved with them. I love spending time with friends, whether it be going to movies, playing sports, or just talking. I love working with other people and making new friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church for simply one reason, It makes me happy. When I live my life how this church asks that I do, I find that I am so much happier. I know that this gospel is true. I know that Jesus Christ lived and died for everyone so that we all have an opportunity to return back to our heavenly father. I know that even though I'm not perfect, I am still loved by my heavenly father. I know that President Monson is the Prophet today and is Gods mouthpiece on earth. I'm so thankful that I do know this church is true, I'm thankful that when I try my best Christ makes up for my shortcomings. I have friends who maybe don't live in accordance with the church and I see the sorrow in their eyes, but when I see someone who is trying their best to follow the commandments, you can see the true happiness in their eyes. I am a member of this church because I love that true happiness, that only this church can bring!

How I live my faith

I participate in my ward by serving others. I do my best to find ways to help other people and try to be cheerful when I am asked to perform service. The most common way I participate in my ward is I sustain my leaders and do what they ask me to do whenever and whatever it may be. Having a dad that has been in church leadership most of my life I know how important it is to sustain them and that's what I try to do.
