Hi I'm Nate Warburton

I grew up on a dairy farm. I'm a husband and father. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband to a beautiful women and father to a lovely little girl. I love the outdoors; especially snowboarding, and love Jesus Christ. I served a LDS mission for 2 years in San Bernardino California. I love California and the people there. I had many opportunities to share the gospel and I as I got to serve the people there I saw how the gospel can change people's life for the better.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I have gained a testimony of its truthfulness. This means that I have gained a testimony of the this church and its teachings by the power of the Holy Ghost. I can remember one specific moment earlier in my life where I wanted to know if the things that I had been taught by my parents where true, or not. I remember I took the challenge to read the Book of Mormon and prayed to know if it was true. I was frustrated because I did not feel like I had gotten any kind of an answer. Thinking back I was expecting to much, I remember late, one night I drove home and pulled up in my driveway, I sat there thinking about my life and the direction I was going, wondering what I should do, as I had a lot of very important decisions to make. I can remember that my mind caught hold of the thought that the teachings I had read in the Book of Mormon were all good, and everyone I knew that lived these teachings were happy. I then thought to myself, how could these things not be true, when they brought so much good and happiness. When I thought this I felt an overwhelming feeling that is hard to describe but that I cannot deny was the Holy Ghost. I came to know my Savior Jesus Christ and how even though I make many mistakes I can become clean through living these teachings and one day return to live with Jesus Christ and My Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I have the opportunity to go Home Teaching to other members in my Ward. I love these visits because we get to help each other come closer to the Savior. I read the scriptures and listen to the direction of a living Prophet of God, Pres. Thomas S. Monson. Living the Gospel is what Jesus Christ teaches us we are to do. This means everyday incorporating the gospel in my life.

Are Mormons Christians?

Nate Warburton
Yes, I have had this question posed to me many times and I implore anyone who wonders this to read The Book of Mormon. This sacred text clearly teaches and testifies of Jesus Christ. We use this record as scripture along with the Bible. One of my favorite passages in The Book of Mormon that testifies of Christ is 2 Nephi 25:26, here a Book of Mormon Prophet tells why he is writing this record. Show more Show less
