Hi I'm Matthew Clive

I grew up in Washington. I love basketball and the outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from Washington, I played Varsity basketball, and continue to have a passion for it, I love the outdoors and enjoy living an active lifestyle that's full of adventure.

Why I am a Mormon

Because it is the true church on the earth today! I have come to know through earnest scripture study and prayer that it is true, and because of that it is worth so much. I stay in the church because it is what makes me happiest, to follow Jesus Christ and to have the opportunity to live with my family forever. It's such a great blessing that in the right frame of mind, I cannot choose any other path.

How I live my faith

I am a devoted member of my current branch, and I oversee the lessons taught to the branch members as a Sunday School president and am there to enrich the lessons that they learn.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Matthew Clive
Serving a mission is a great opportunity that all righteous and able church members can choose to experience. It is in no way required, but it is encouraged. It is encouraged for a very good reason, as nearly all of the returned missionaries say that it has been the best decision they ever had to go on a mission and that it was the best period of their life so far. Also, many say that it prepared them for life's challenges very well. For many reasons, including those just stated I have chosen to serve a mission and am going to Columbia at the end of 2017.
