Hi I'm Nathan

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I guess you could say I'm just your typical college student. I enjoy going to school and interacting with people from all walks of life. When I'm not at work or school I spend most of my time studying and taking my wife out on dates. I enjoy sports and the occasional movie when I have a free moment. There's a lot in life I still haven't done yet but I don't let that get me down. I look forward to what the future holds and the possibilities that are waiting for me.

Why I am a Mormon

Well, it took me 23 years before I truly felt like I was converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Finally after trying to do everything by myself I realized how badly I needed help. I couldn't do everything on my own anymore and decided to try and live the gospel teachings of Christ. My life has never been better! I don't live perfectly and still make many mistakes but I feel the love of the Savior urging me to try a little harder and do a little better each time I stumble. I'm Mormon because my soul is always comforted in the redeeming atonement of Jesus Christ. I have peace even in times of chaos.

How I live my faith

My wife and I teach the 4 year old class in sunday school. Sometimes I feel like the kids are actually teaching me. I'm trying to duplicate their humility and honesty as I go throughout my week. I read my scriptures and pray just about every night but I'm not perfect at it. Thankfully the Lord is patient with me as I try to overcome the shortcomings in my life. The best nights are when my wife and I have our own Family Home Evening and I get to listen to her talk about her faith and testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ. Her faith truly strengthens my testimony and I realize how important it is to have loved ones in your life.

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

Nathan
I go to college in what many people consider the "bible belt" of America. Many people assume I'm not a christian or that I don't believe in Jesus Christ as the literal Son of God. Most people don't realize just how christian our faith is and they're usually surprised at how similar many of our beliefs are. The truth is Jesus Christ is the Son of God and there is no other name by which people can be saved. Jesus Christ is my savior and the Savior of the world. His goodness is available to all and brings happiness to anyone who reaches out to Him. Show more Show less

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Nathan
People always ask me how I know Mormonism is true. I didn't know that it was true until I finally read the Book of Mormon, which testifies of Jesus Christ, and humbled myself to pray and ask God if it were true. God answered my prayer and the all encompassing feeling of love and warmth that I received is something I can not deny and will never forget. As I read the teachings of Jesus Christ and serve those around me the Spirit continues to testify to me of the truthfulness of Christ' gospel. Show more Show less
