Hi I'm Nathan

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 19 year old boy, I am from Tucson Arizona, I have been a member of the church for my whole life. I love to play sports, basically all of them, and outdoor activities, like hiking, rock climbing, and repelling. I go to college at BYU I have finished one year, I am majoring in excersize science, and after that I am gonna try to get to PT school to try to be a physical therapist..

Why I am a Mormon

The reason that I am a mormon is because it makes me very happy to know that this life is not the end, it makes me happy to know that I will be able to see my grandpa and other relatives again.. I am glad to know that because Jesus Christ died for me I can fix the things that I do wrong through his atonement, and that because of that I can be saved from a spiritual death, that there is a way to be forgiven and that brings me great joy.

How I live my faith

The way that I live my faith is through trying to live the things that I learn in church, and basically living a good life. I am currently on a mission so I am for sure living the gospel, and trying to get people to join this church and knowing what makes me so happy, because this church gives me a reason to be happy everyday, because I know the answer to where I am going after this life.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

The way to come to know Heavenly Father is through talking to him and reading scripture. Well this is how it has been for me, if I want to talk with God I pray to him, then he answers me, When he answers I feel the Holy Ghost, which for me is a joy in my heart, it almost feels like pressure building up in my chest but it is a good kind of feeling, and it is unmistakeable, this is just how I feel him and it is different for all people. Many times the way that God answers me is through the scriptures, mainly the Book of Mormon, and even though it was written hundreds of years ago it still seems to be the right kind of thing that I need to hear in my life. Basically the way that I came to know my Heavenly Father is by learning about Him in scriptures and also by praying to him, and I know that he is there becasuse he always answers me.
