Hi I'm Nathan

I'm from a family of five brothers, and have a young family of my own now. I have Crohn's disease, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I read and write as a hobby, enjoy being a husband and daddy, and despite some serious health setbacks with Crohn's Disease, am living after a manner of happiness while pursuing a career to support my family.  

Why I am a Mormon

Probably more precious to me than anything else is the knowledge of how much our Heavenly Father loves us, and that as often and as much as we turn to Him for help, He will always be there for us. This knowledge has kept me strong when so much around me seemed to fall apart. The restored gospel of Jesus Christ has brought this assurance into my life. I owe my faith, the strength of my family, and my own personal character and quality, to the testimony I recieved from the Holy Ghost of this restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I feel its truth with every earnest prayer, and with every sincere study of the holy scriptures. I love this gospel, and the truth that brings such happiness and peace to me and my family.  

How I live my faith

As a teacher of youth and a resource for other teachers in my local ward, I do the best I can and trust that the Lord will supplement my efforts.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

We want so badly to have tangible evidence. We are inclined to look for it in everything before accepting something as true. Faith cannot work like this. Thomas the Apostle wanted so badly to see and feel the prints of the nails in Christ's hands and feet, but Christ taught him that you are more blessed to first believe, even without seeing. Faith is our evidence of those things we cannot see with our eyes just yet. The Holy Ghost, through feelings, is our guide to these truths, if we ask the Father in faith. I knew by the feelings in my heart these principles were true, long before I thought to pray for the confirmation. The confirmation that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is Jesus Christ's restored church was ultimately just that, confirmation of what I had already felt in my heart through study and participation.  Show more Show less
