Hi I'm Natasha

I'm a wife, a daughter, a sister, a blogger. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I am a twenty-something college graduate. I am currently working. My husband and I were recently married and we're loving it! I love the smell of fresh rain, the sound of thunderstorms, going on nature walks with my husband, and being out in the open air. I also enjoy talking and spending time with my family, baking, blogging, and spending time with friends. I love to learn new things and listen to good music. I love being a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

My parents joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints when I was 5 years old, so I grew up in the church. But, just because my parents were members, I still needed to know for myself that it was true. I gained a knowledge of the truthfulness through prayer. The Holy Ghost confirmed to me that it is true. The gospel means everything to me. I know our Heavenly Father wants us to be happy and I know that He has a plan for us to return back to Him. I know that He loves us.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by being generous, kind, and by serving those around me. I try to set an example of clean living and high moral standards. My faith is an anchor in my life. I also attend a branch similar to a congregation for young single adults. I am currently the leader for the woman's organization in our branch.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

That's a good question. Yes, I believe in a modern day prophet. Just as Moses' people needed guidance in his day, we need guidance in ours as well. I believe that God speaks through a prophet and guides him just as he did Moses. I believe that God is an unchanging God and loves us just as much he loved Moses and his people. God would not leave us to fend for ourselves. We need His direction in our lives and that direction comes through a prophet. Show more Show less

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Everything that we have comes from our loving Heavenly Father. He has asked us that in return, we give back just 10 of our increase as tithing. Tithing is not a new concept, it has existed since ancient times. The great thing about tithing is that it's equal for everybody. Rich or poor both pay 10 of their increase! Money donated as tithing is used to build church buildings, temples, and help finance our missionary effort. Great blessings come from paying tithing.   Show more Show less

Why is family so important to Mormons?

We were put here on earth in family groups so we could learn and grow together. We believe that family relationships continue beyond death. As a result, families are very important to us and so we work hard to strengthen those relationships that will last forever. I've learned so much from my family and am grateful for their support and love. Show more Show less
