Hi I'm Matthew Uppencamp

I grew up in Provo. I love music, technology, and the Gospel. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love listening, and performing music. I love learning about all the new advances in technology, and hope that I will be able to try my hand at it one day. I love this Gospel, and how it helped shape my life and put me on the right path. I'm preparing to go and serve a mission in Wisconsin and hope that I will be able to serve in the best way I can, and when I get back I want to go to college and continue to learn

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church as many others I know, but it wasn't until I decided to serve a mission that I felt like I truly came to understand the Gospel as I do now. Before I made the decision I decided to go away from my home ward and try out singles ward. This was the turning point for me because for once the choice to go to church was completely based on my willingness to go. After going for a while I decided the reason I came to church is because I wanted to, I wanted to learn more of this Gospel, I wanted to serve, and with a little help from so many friends I chose to go and do just that.

How I live my faith

I make sure to go to church every Sunday, read from the scriptures daily, try to follow the commandments, and try to find ways to help others. I always find happiness and joy when serving others, and can't wait to do that for a solid two years.
