Hi I'm Matt Spataro

I'm serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the Northwest and I love to be outdoors! I love to run, hike, and take pictures. I spent a year at BYU and I can honestly say it was the best year of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I know the church is true because the spirit has borne witness unto me. Nothing is more powerful than a spiritual confirmation from the Holy Ghost.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the little things. Little things add up. This year I decided to read my scriptures and write in my journal every night. That 15 minutes I take every night to center myself on Christ is my favorite time of the day. No matter how defeated I may have felt, I can make good on the promise I made to myself. And there’s been a noticeable change in my life since I’ve kept my humble commitment. I’m more hopeful. I have a greater sense of purpose. A greater sense of peace. I have learned to rely on the Grace of Christ. And truthfully, I am a much happier person. I'm currently serving a mission in Las Vegas Nevada, and I'm able to share that joy I feel with others!
