Hi I'm Matt

I grew up in Washington state. I love to play volleyball and soccer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

One of my favorite things to do is play volleyball. In high school I participated in track and field as a pole vaulter which is also a passion of mine. I am in my freshman year of college studying mechanical engineering. I hope when I graduate I can use this degree to help people in the area of prosthetic technology, specifically in artificial devices for those who have had amputations or other challenges in their life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that everything I live is true and correct. I know that I have a Father in Heaven who loves me and wants to help me. I am a Mormon because I want to be with my family forever and help others to reach that same goal. I continue to be a Mormon because I have faith that what I am doing is right and what God wants me to do when I follow the teachings of this church. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet that restored the true church to the Earth and that the Book of Mormon is true and has an accurate history of actual events that occurred hundreds of years ago in the Americas. I know that God loves me and wants what is best for me. I am a Mormon because I know it is right.

How I live my faith

Everyday I live my faith by speaking to my Heavenly Father in prayer and asking for help with my struggles in life. This helps me to know for myself that he is there and that he loves me. I also do my best to help those who I pass by as I live my daily life because I believe that serving others benefits not only those I serve but myself also. I also live my faith by committing to serve a two year full time mission for the Mormon church and try to reach out to others to teach them of the truth and help them build a positive relationship with others. I work at doing all these things every day so I can live the things I believe in.
