Hi I'm Nate

I'm a surfer, father, and web designer in Hawaii. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a stand up paddle surf instructor and web designer in Hawaii on the North Shore of Oahu. My wife and I have 3 little girls who are tons of fun. I work and home and love the ocean.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know this is the true church of Jesus Christ. Although I grew up a member of the church, there came a time when I had to know for myself if the church was true. I read the Book of Mormon for myself, then prayed to Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, by myself, asking Him to let me know that it is true. I got my answer and I know it's true.

How I live my faith

I do my very best to put my wife and kids first in my life and to be like Jesus. I pray and read the Bible and the Book of Mormon with my family. I work with the youth at church. I help plan activities such as campouts and dances. I also teach a class every morning for the high school age youth. The youth voluntarily come to church every morning before school starts to learn about the gospel. Every year we study a different book of scripture. We have studied the New Testament and The Book of Mormon. We have a lot of fun. Every day I try to be a little better than yesterday and become more like Jesus.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Nate
Read the Bible. Read The Book of Mormon. Listen to, and read, the words of the living prophet today. Then, think and ponder on it all. Then, kneel down and sincerely ask God in the name of Jesus Christ to let you know that they are true. God cannot lie. He's perfect. He will let you know through the feeling you will receive in your heart and mind. It's a bold prayer to make, but if you want to know the truth, you've got to go to the source of all truth for yourself. Show more Show less

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

Nate
All the missionaries pay for their missions, sometimes with the help of other members. After I graduated high school, I paid for my mission delivering pizzas. I was a missionary in Barcelona, Spain. Show more Show less
