Hi I'm Nate!
I grew up in Oregon, and now I'm a medical student in Louisiana. I'm a Mormon.
Hi! I'm a medical student in Louisiana, and am recently married to my beautiful sweetheart. I have been a member of the church my whole life, and am so grateful to be a part of it. I enjoy the outdoors, I'm a big fan of soccer, football and doing things with my wife, my parents, brothers and sisters. I enjoy exercise and playing board games. Basically I enjoy a lot of things, I just enjoy life.
I am a Mormon because I feel like it is the best place for me. Since I have been a member for a while, I have had many opportunities to see the benefits of being a member. But the biggest reason I am a member is because I have felt the Holy Ghost tell me that it is true. As I have read about and prayed about the doctrines of the church, I have felt at peace and have felt the warm feeling that I have come to know is the Holy Ghost telling me that it is true. In this way I know that the Book of Mormon is true, that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that the prophet on the earth today is Thomas Monson. I love this church and know it is the church of God.
I live my faith by going to church every Sunday, I read my scriptures every morning before going to school, and I teach the 8-12 year olds in Sunday school with my wife. Every Tuesday night I also help the boys with Cub Scouts. Its a lot of fun and I feel it really helps me and the kids I work with by doing all of these things. I know that doing these things, my personal efforts and my service make me a better person and also make the children better too.
