Hi I'm Matthew

I grew up in Idaho, Florida and Utah. I enjoy being outdoors. I love soccer, hunting, dirt bikes and snowboarding. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am about to graduate from High School. I play soccer and serve on the Seminary Council at my highschool. I am going to go to Weber State University when I return home from serving a mission in Salem, Oregon. My hobbies include hunting and fishiing, hiking and horseback riding, dirtbike riding and snowboarding. I am the third child in a family of seven children. I have the current pull-up record at my highschool and I love life.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the church, I was born into it. I have always had a testimony for as long as I can remember that this is the true church. As I have grown older, through the experiences I have experienced, I've grown a stronger testimony and now I know this is the true church. I have read the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that Joseph Smith translated it and that he was a prophet of God. He went through so much for the church. Some people wonder why he didn't give up. I know that he didn't give up because he knew that this is the true church and that it is the most important truth on the earth and that it was very important that he shared what he knew with others. He could not deny what he knew to be true. I know that the Prophet Joseph Smith restored the fullness of the gospel to the earth and didn't leave anything out. The power of God was restored to the earth I know that this is the true church and am so happy to be a part of it.

How I live my faith

I am the first assistant to the bishop I am in charge of conducting meetings getting someone to say prayers and conduct music and everything else that needs to be done in the Quoram. I also do my best to get all the kids that are a part of the corm or group to come to all church activities. I have a home teaching assignment with a companion. we go to the houses of three people and teach them a lesson or just visit with them, we try to go once a month. I am preparing to serve a mission for the Church in Salem, Oregon. I am doing a lot of things to prepare myself for that like reading preach my gospel and The Book of Mormon and other material that will help me know the material that I will be teaching on my mission. I know that this is the true church and that is the most important truth in the world. Everybody needs the opportunity to know that so they can live with their Heavenly Father again after they die.
