Hi I'm Natalie

I'm a Criminal Analyst, a Musician, a Grateful Wife and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Out of the five children in my family, I'm the youngest. We are a family full of personality! I am a native to Kansas but have been practically a Georgia girl my whole life - just without the Southern accent. I married a born-and-raised Georgia man and my best friend. I love searching for answers because I always seem to have questions flooding through my mind. This is one of the reasons I love doing Analyst work. It's my job to find answers to the questions! Shortly after I started college, I started singing in the Atlanta Symphony Chorus Orchestra. Whenever I can, I try to meet up with old and new friends to play a tune here and there. My first memory of my mother is a very short(er) version of me standing next to my mom on the piano bench, singing while she played piano. I have always loved music and appreciate a mother and father who encouraged my musical endeavors. Music can be so empowering if you allow it. It's through music that I learned you can never truly reach your potential and appreciate what you have unless you work for it.

Why I am a Mormon

I've never doubted God existed. It didn't seem possible to believe such a thing just by looking at all the good and wonderful things around me. While growing up in the South, I've had many friends of different Faiths and we would discuss differences between different Faiths. I couldn't help but compare doctrine of other Faiths to doctrine of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Looking to scriptures and prayer I found clarity and comfort; The Church of Jesus Chris of Latter-Day Saints' doctrine was logical and in harmony with universal principles. Not only did it make sense, but it felt right. I used knowledge and feelings as my compass to find wherever Truth is. Throughout my teenage years I received constant confirmations that basic principles and doctrine of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true and is the only true restored Gospel upon the Earth. Throughout college and my marriage, I have worked to build a stronger relationship with my Savior . For me the Gospel of Jesus Christ has one central theme and that is true happiness through Jesus Christ. I know by personal experience, that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter - Day Saints is God's Church on the Earth today directed to offer that happiness to all. His Church is equipped with all things to help us be better people and live happier lives. We are all God's children; I know he loves us very dearly and wants the best for us.

How I live my faith

All the stories and accounts of the Savior all speak of his consistency in focusing on individuals. That is something I try to do. Sometimes the best way to do that is just by being happy. If you're happy and living the way the Savior would want you to live, it's only natural to be kind to people. Then as time goes by, you learn how to reach out to those people and help strengthen them as well as their relationship with the God just by loving them. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is a plan of constant improvement, which for me, starts by learning how to love.
