About Me

Hey everyone,About Matt

I am Matt and I am here to talk about pornography, drinking, drugs, partying, and sex…do I have your attention now?

More specifically, I am actually here to share my journey through life with you and explain why removing these aspects of life I just mentioned have created more joy and fulfillment in my life.

The reason I created this site is to get REAL with you about life as a high school student, college student, and young adult. If you are between the ages of 15 to 25, I am specifically talking to you although everyone is welcome here 🙂 My goal is to shake things up a bit and talk about the insecurities, struggles, and hidden areas of life that other people aren’t willing to talk through.

So now to me and my journey through life…

I am currently 22 years old. I have completed high school and just graduated from college last year so I am out in the “real world” working full time for a living now. All through high school, I was hooked on pornography. The drinking, drugs, partying, and sex started once I became a college student.

I thought and felt that these were the finer things in life, that this is what life was all about. Just having fun and doing whatever I pleased seemed to be the ideal life. 8 years of seeking and living out this lifestyle, and I am here to tell you that it led to nowhere. When I looked at myself and evaluated everything, I realized I was a living a lie and didn’t feel good about myself deep down inside.

I am now a Follower of Christ (different than a Christian…I will explain later) and my eyes have been opened up to what life is truly about. I am filled with joy, and these last 14 months since I gave my life to Christ have been the best times of my life.

Now, let me be clear…I am not saying when you give your life to Christ, all your problems, pain, and worries vanish. In fact, those parts of life never go away, but it’s suddenly different and more peaceful going through those times when you know you’re never alone.

I am NOT here to convert you to become a believer, I just ask that if you feel you can relate to anything I’ve said so far that you would just use this site to peer into my life and continue listening, reading, and engaging.

If you are confused or have questions, then please leave a comment or drop me an email at matt@fulfillmentinlife.com. I also would love to receive all kinds of feedback from you. Please don’t hesitate to share your opinions and feelings on the content I have created on my site.

I am here to help and I am offering up all the failures and areas where I fell short in my life to show you what I have learned and how the message of the Good News has transformed my life. If that sounds like something even slightly interesting that perhaps you want in your life, then simply hang around…what have you got to lose?

I look forward to sharing life with you, getting real, interacting with you, and helping out in any way I can! 🙂

    Matt I am a father of the boys. One of which is currently a junior in high school, one a freshman, and the third in elementary school. I have seen the times change of the years while parents, teachers, and other faculty ignored the facts. The facts are that times have changes and kids are growing up much faster. If they do not get the education of these subjects at home or at school. They will find it online. I commend you for being up front to bring these subject to the four front.

    Hello Matthew,
    I couldn’t agree more. Your website is truly unique. Go and read Job 3:25 and tell me what it means to you.

    Have a blessed day my friend…

      Johan, I definitely will. I look to not only look at specific verses when people recommend them…I like to look at the entire chapter and take a step back so I have a clear understanding of the context. Stay tuned and I will give you my thoughts.

    Hi Matt,

    I just stumbled across your site, and want to thank you for taking this on. My sons are both out of high school, and one has just started college. They are great kids, but I know that the pressures of today’s world provide a lot more challenge than what I had to deal with growing up.

    I wish you continued success, and truly look forward to seeing you change the world in your own way.

      Hey Jim,

      First off, I am happy to know that you stumbled upon this site and it is no coincidence that you did. I would love it if you asked your kids to check out the site and see what they think, it might be able to help them with the struggles they will be facing soon as they start college.

      Thank you for the kind wishes and my hope is truly to change in the world in way that God has called me, by doing his will and not mine own and I strongly feel that he has put this on my heart to go after my own generation slightly younger than me to show them what life is truly about.

      Have a blessed afternoon Jim!

    Hi Matthew. I’m way passed that age you’ve mentioned, but I turned to Christ at the age of 24 after a life of booze, drugs and name it. The years that followed my conversion were not that easy. I knew two sober years but I was feeling condemned. I had a slip of 3 years then I was delivered again for two more years… But it was like I wasn’t fitting into church anymore. I slipped back for 7 years. And finally was delivered again. God never let me down, probably because he knew the struggle I was going through.

    I am clean and sober since 2004 now. But I know how hard for me it was to get where I am now. I am saved by His grace. I don’t have to work for my salvation. Hey did it all at the cross. But I have some work to do to remain clean and sober…. Trying to live like I think He wants me to live….in His love basically.

    Anyway, it’s cool to see a young man like you having such goals and purpose in life, and I really encourage you to continue. God bless,

    Guy

    Hi! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Have you any idea how
    you can make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4.

    I’m looking for a template or plugin that could possibly fix this issue.
    When you have any suggestions, please share. Cheers!

      Hey Angel,

      I’m sorry that I am of little to no help here. All I can tell you is that the WordPress theme I picked for my site happened to work out. I think there were some themes to choose form that we’re “mobile-friendly” is all.

      Beyond that, I know there are other ways to pay somebody to optimize your site so that it is mobile-friendly. If you like the way my site looks on your mobile device and are satisfied with that, then you simply have to choose a premium WordPress theme I believe and check to make sure that it’s mobile friendly.

      I hope this helps!

      Hey Alec,

      Thank you so much, I am happy knowing that it is indeed relevant. Please let me know what kind of blog posts and podcasts you would like to see in the future.

      I would just ask that you and the rest of the community kindly bear with me as I am getting married in 4 months and going through some other amazing life transitions! As a result, I do not have the free time or ability to work on my website as much as I’d like to.

    With havin so much written content do you ever come across any issues of plagorism or
    copyright violation? My website provides extensive unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced however it appears a variety
    of it is popping it all around the internet without my
    authorization. Have you any idea any methods to help protect against content from being scammed?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.

      Hello Emelda,

      I am sorry to hear that you are having issues with others stealing your content. :/ Unfortunately, I do not know of any methods to TRULY help protect agains this.

      There are plugins that don’t allow people to right-click/copy-paste from your website, but then people can still screen shot your website if they wanted to. So, I don’t think there’s any true way to prevent it fully.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between user

    fantastic job with this. Additionally, the blog loads very quick for me on Chrome.
