Hi I'm Matt

I grew up in Colorado all my life, I love basketball and photography. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

A little bit about me is I grew up native in Colorado, With the mountains so close by I grew to love the outdoors, especially at sunset. This love for the outdoors sparked a photography pursuit in landscapes. I now search for amazing landscapes at sunset especially. I am a huge fan of basketball and I love to play it. I am a student at BYU and I try to spend as much time as I can on basketball. With basketball comes fitness. I love fitness and I try my best to stay fit by using fitness trackers and dieting.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church but I cant say I was always a true member of this church. As a child I would ditch my Sunday school classes because I did not enjoy being in them. I was always relying on the faith of others. As I grew older I in a sense began to investigate the church even though I was already a member. As I grew up my love for the savior grew immensely and powerfully. I read the Book of Mormon all the way through and prayed to my heavenly father for a witness of its truth and I can say that certainty that I know that Joseph Smith translated the plates and is in all reality a profit of God. I know now that God is real and Jesus Christ is my savior and redeemer. I love this gospel, It has brought me such true happiness in my life that I know I would not have been able to find anywhere else. My love for the gospel has inspired me to be better and give up worldly tendencies for Christ. I love this gospel I cannot say it enough, I do not know where I would be without it. I bear solemn witness that Jesus is the Christ and this is his church and I know this without a doubt and that is why I am a Mormon

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday and participate in religion classes at my College studying books of scripture. I make an effort to serve with the church when opportunities come up. I love home teaching and visiting people in the church to share lessons about the gospel because so many people can offer so many great insights to life and the gospel.

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

Matt
We can receive answers and help from the Holy Ghost and be able to recognize and know what is truth and what is evil. The blessings from discerning good from evil with the guidance from the Holy Ghost can greatly impact our lives for the better. Show more Show less
