Hi I'm Nathan

I'm a husband, father, Mormon, nerd, and geek.

About Me

A loving husband, devoted father and faithful Mormon. I'm a tech geek programmer that dabbles in social media. Sometimes I just want to play video games. My wife calls me a hero worshipper. I love most things Disney. I'm a bit of a TWiT.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and baptized when I was eight. I cannot point to a specific even or time where I became "converted," but I can name many individual experiences that have helped me know the church and its principles are true. Most importantly, whenever I teach about or testify of the gospel I feel the Holy Ghost continue to witness that what I am saying is true.

How I live my faith

I serve on the leadership council for my local congregation. We minister and administer to bring those in our congregation to Christ. I also lead an organization for the men of our congregation. I regularly visit members of the congregation as part of my membership in that organization for men.

Who founded Mormonism and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

Nathan
There are two answers to this question: 1.) Jesus Christ setup and established a church. He gave his gospel to Adam, the first man, and it has been passed down among his righteous people. After Christ died and was resurrected, the people eventually rejected all his apostles. The true and pure gospel of Christ was lost. Which brings us to. . . 2.) Joseph Smith was a young boy chosen by God and Jesus Christ to restore the gospel that was lost since the time of the original apostles. He restored the Church of Jesus Christ in these latter days.

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

Nathan
Both my grandfathers have passed away, and it is a great comfort for me to know that they will be resurrected because of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. There is a little time of separation now, but I will see them again. Show more Show less

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Nathan
Most people know that word as it relates to court. A witness will provide testimony about a case for the court. That basically covers it in the Mormon setting as well. Individual members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have witnessed things which confirm their faith. Their testimony represents an account of those things. Show more Show less

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?
