Hi I'm Matt James

I grew up in Dallas, Texas. I play several instruments and write my own music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Matt. I am 18 years old. I grew up in Arizona for 12 years, and then I moved to Dallas, Texas. I have 5 siblings, 3 brothers and two sisters. I have always loved music since I was a kid. I got my first guitar at 10 and I still play. I also play drums, piano, and I sing. I write my own music and have written about 20 songs. Other than music, I have always been into action sports since I was a kid, such as BMX, dirt bike riding, skateboarding, snowboarding, etc. I have plans to get a degree in business when I get home from my mission. My ultimate goals are to have a career of some sort in music. Whether that is being in a band, owning a recording studio, or being part of a radio station, I am not really sure. I will just wait and see where life takes me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have seen how much this church has blessed my life. I was born into the church, which I am very grateful for, but, I have developed my own testimony over the years. I have always appreciated the guidance and direction this church has given me. I have never had to wonder what was the true church, what my purpose here on this earth is, or what I have to do to get back to my father in heaven. I know that this is Christ's true church restored to the earth.

How I live my faith

As of November 1st, I will be a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am dedicating all of my time to serving people, and preaching Christ's word.
