Hi I'm Matthew Knowlton

I am from beautiful Portland, Oregon and I am a Full time missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints.

About Me

I am from a big family of of 4 brothers and 3 sisters. I am going on a mission and I love the Lord's gospel. I am a concert junkie of 3 years. I love music and I love to read. I love to explore with wonderful friends and someone very close to me. I graduated High school early to serve a mission and am accepted to Utah State for the fall 2018 semester.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised in the church for my entire life and I have questioned my entire life if what I was being taught was true. So I finished reading in the Book of Mormon and I knelt down and prayed and I thought came into my head telling me "You already know". I have received answers like this throughout my life, promptings from the Holy Ghost. I wanted to serve a mission but I received an answer to "go now" So here I am, giving 2 years to my Lord. I cannot deny him. He has blessed me throughout my life and now is my time to give back.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every single day. In every aspect I can showing small acts of faith to my Heavenly Father. I have served in my ward every Sunday filling in every single calling for a young man there is. I devote my Sundays just to my Heavenly Father and to my family, I can feel the Lord's spirit guiding me and protecting me when I keep the Sabbath Day holy.
