Hi I'm Natalie.

I'm a Jack of all trades. I am both introverted and outgoing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a history teaching major, Spanish minor from the East Coast. I'm the oldest and only girl in my family, with four younger brothers. I'm picky with food and music artists, but could count just about everything as a hobby.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I like living in a world with an idea of where I came from and where I'm heading. I could never give up the peace and comfort it gives me, and I'm always so thankful that faith in any religion provides a sense of direction. I'm a Mormon because in this crazy world, I refuse to believe that a source for solace is nowhere to be found.

How I live my faith

I'm currently serving a mission for the church in upstate New York. I'm here because the gospel has changed my life! I would think whenever anyone has something they really love they would want to share it with as many people as they can. That is exactly what I'm doing.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Natalie.
No. It is encouraged mostly of guys ages between 19 to about 24, and girls are presented with the option when they turn 21. On a basic level, its an opportunity to meet tons of people and to do nothing but serve others. I know some people have the understanding that its to force others to convert to our religion, but more than anything missionaries are there to serve and there for those who have questions.
