Hi I'm Matt

I grew up in Mountain Home, Arkansas and am now currently living in Mount Vernon, Ohio. I am full of love, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a pretty easy guy to get along with. I always have been. I enjoy fishing and reading in my spare time. I am an only child that was raised only by his mother. Times were tough, but thanks to the gospel things just keep looking up.

Why I am a Mormon

I did not think that I would ever become a Mormon. I am a little stubborn and so when missionaries arrived at my door I was less than pleased to see them. I did at least let them teach about the basic beliefs that Mormons believe. I even was able to receive the answer to a question that not even professors at college could answer: which was "If God sent prophets in the past during troubled times why did he just stop?" It never says in the Bible "this is the last prophet". The missionaries told me that God still calls prophets to help his children, and that the current prophet is Thomas S. Monson. I was so happy when they told me this. A prophet means that God has not given up on us. A prophet means hope. I know that Thomas S. Monson is the current prophet. I know Jesus Christ is the savior. I know the book of Mormon is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to follow all of the commandments as well as pray daily. Of course scripture study is also important. I am always willing to help out anyone that needs it. If someone is moving I will help. I have several callings in the church including family history consultant. It is such a cool feeling to find out more and more about my family, and to be able to help others do the same. I am also an event coordinator for the youth that allows the members to spend more time together and have a fun time.
