Hi I'm Nathan

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm an average run-of-the-mill husband and father. I love my wife and kids...and sometimes our pet dog. I enjoy fly fishing, but seem to never have enough time to get to the river. I work for a software company and find it to be a rewarding occupation. My goals for 2014 include making more time for Family History...and fishing.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon makes me happy. It brings an indescribable joy into my life and the lives of my family. Being a Mormon gives me hope in dark times, and keeps me humble in times of plenty. When I stumble, my beliefs pick me up and put be back on the straight and narrow path. Being a Mormon brings clarity and direction in a world that seems shrouded in uncertainty. I've had my own seasons of doubt and journeys of truth. However, through those trials, I've become better acquainted with my God and my Savior. I have found truth in the teachings of the ancient as well as modern prophets and apostles. I know, while imperfect, Joseph Smith did what he said he did and saw what he said he saw. Without doubt...I know where I came from, why I am here, and where I am going. Being a Mormon has brought me this comfort.

How I live my faith

I look to leave places, positions, and people better than when I found them. While not perfect, I look to follow the example of my Savior in what I do and what I become. I teach my family to "treat others as you would want to be treated" and to look to God in all things. I work as "pastor" in my Mormon ward, which has given me some pretty fantastic experiences. Living my faith is more than attending church on Sunday. It's a way of life. It has become part of my DNA. Christ is the perfect example. From His childhood, Christ looked to do the will of the Father. Every day. That is my hope. That I can look to my Heavenly Father...daily...and find ways to do His will among His children.
