Hi I'm Matthew

I was born and raised in Provo, UT. I come from a fairly large and wonderful family. I am student at BYU. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My family and I are all ballroom dancers. I am a successful competitor with several rankings. I am an eagle scout. I am also a student at BYU in Provo, UT. I am a member of the prestigious Ballroom Dance Company. I hope to study exercise science and after obtaining my degree, jump to chiropractic school. I am serving a mission for the LDS church in South Carolina Columbia and I leave August of 2016.

Why I am a Mormon

Well I was born and raised in this church. For generations my family has been members. At first I went for my family. However the older I got the more people started asking me questions about the church and why I am a member. I took some time but I found my answer as to why I am still a member. Because it just feels right. It's a simple and unsatisfactory answer for some. But for me I know it's a witness from the Holy Ghost. I can't imagine being anything else because I don't want to be anything else.

How I live my faith

I have had the awesome opportunity to teach a family history class for my ward. It was wonderful to see people make progress and break through barriers. I have also had a chance to use my dancing abilities to teach the youth of my home town a dance designed for a cultural celebration in our community. I have the blessing and responsibility to visit members and less active members of the church in their homes. I visit with them and love them. I learn ways I can offer them service and strengthen their testimonies of the Savior.

In whom should we have faith?

Since there is no other person who can get us back to our Heavenly Father, including ourselves, we must put our Faith in Jesus Christ. It is only Him who can save and redeem mankind because only He performed the great Atonement. Show more Show less
