Hi I'm Matthew

I'm a cross country runner, tuba player, bass singer, and the youngest brother of four. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a cross country, and long distance track runner, and have been since 8th grade. Running is very fulfilling to me because it requires a lot of physical and mental effort. In races, I can focus all my attention on one singular purpose (Reaching the finish line). When I finish a race I feel satisfied because I've given my all. Running regularly can be tedious because it often requires me to put aside other things I may have wanted to do in the mornings, or after school, and it can be repetitive or monotonous at times but it's worth it because my training pays off in races on cross country courses and on the track. I also love to listen to all kinds of music from classical, to alternative rock, because I get a lot of value out of the melodies , and lyrics provided by all kinds of genres.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have found that as I learn about Jesus Christ, and glorify God (often through song), and as I abide by the commandments that Jesus and his prophets have given, I have a spirit of peace, joy, and purpose in my life. The truths of the Gospel of Christ are confirmed to me through The Holy Ghost, which is a warm and powerful feeling in my heart that strengthens my personal faith. I find that when I express myself to God through prayer- asking for help in my life, He listens and gives me the help I need.

How I live my faith

I attend church weekly in order to refresh my conviction to living my faith and expand my understanding of it. My fellow church members are friendly and loving and want to help me succeeded both spiritually and secularly. I am currently preparing to serve an LDS mission in Calgary Canada, where I hope to share the Gospel with many people.
