Hi I'm Matt

I'm a husband and a father. I'm working on becoming a middle school English teacher. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to learn. I consider myself a scientist. I'm fascinated by human language. I'm getting a master's degree in secondary education. I like to knit. I like to take my kids fishing. I think the banjo is the greatest instrument ever invented. Orange is my favorite color.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that the atonement of Jesus Christ is real, that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, and that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know these things because I've prayed about them and the Holy Ghost confirmed their truth to me.

How I live my faith

I believe that actions speak louder than words, so I try to be as good an example as I can no matter where I am. I was a missionary for two years in the country of Thailand. My current job in the church is teaching a youth class each Sunday.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Mormons believe the purpose of life is to be happy. The secret to being truly happy is being obedient to God by following the teachings and example of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
