Hi I'm Matthew Siebach

I grew up in Naperville, Illinois. I am a college student. I love volleyball. I am currently a missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy being around other people and going out to have fun. I love being out in nature and seeing the beauty of the Earth and seeing what God has created for us. I have decided to go on a mission because I want to serve my Heavenly Father and get an experience like no other and bring others to Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I love the way the gospel makes me feel and I have a great bond with others of my faith. I have always been active in coming to church, and it has been a great blessing to me because I have learned so much and will continue to keep learning. At times I have felt low and I am sure everyone has felt that way, but the gospel has helped me feel better and remember that I am a child of God and he loves me. I have a testimony of modern day prophets and I know that they tell us important things as revealed to them by Heavenly Father. I know the Book of Mormon to be the word of God and it has answered so many of my questions. I love the gospel and I can't wait to be a missionary.

How I live my faith

In college I was called to be part of the Sunday School Presidency so I would often fill in for teachers and help give them teaching advice. When I was at home I was called to be a substitute for the youth sunday school classes. I taught almost every week and it has been a huge blessing in preparing to serve a mission. I also had the opportunity to teach Elders Quorum one week and it was a great blessing. I am now a missionary and am able to serve others and teach the gospel.
