Hi I'm Natalie

I'm a wife and mother, a pharmacy technician, and a board game enthusiast. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife to a wonderful man, and a mother to my silly, playful daughter. I enjoy spending time with my family, as well as extended family. I enjoy getting together with friends and having a good time. I love life and all the memories that are created on a daily basis. I have a passion for playing the piano; I've played for 20 years now and it continues to bring me a deep satisfaction and enjoyment. I work as a Pharmacy Technician. I love my job! I'm very detail-oriented, so this field of work is perfect for me. It's wonderful getting to help so many people and being a small part of keeping them healthy. I love being around people and learning from them. I love the connection that two people can make with each other, whether it be acquaintances, friends, or family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, but I haven't always been converted to it. I had experiences where I knew that the things I'd been taught were true, but I didn't take the time to let it sink in all the way. I didn't know for myself that this church is true until I sincerely sought much-needed help from Jesus Christ in my early 20's when I wasn't living righteously, and wasn't happy. I exercised my faith and prayed for His guidance and love to heal the emotional wounds and guilt that I had caused by my own wrong choices. The road of repentance wasn't easy, but I felt His love guiding me back to the road to happiness- living His gospel willingly and happily. My experience is very personal to me, but I can say with full conviction that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer. I know His gospel is upon the earth, and as we search for Him in this world of changing values, He will be there. He is the constant, unchanging anchor we need to hold onto to find true joy. My testimony has strengthened through many beautiful experiences my Heavenly Father has blessed me to have. The gospel makes me so, incredibly happy! That's why I live it. Nothing makes me- or CAN make me- happier.

How I live my faith

I pray frequently that I may see others as Christ does, so that I can be slow to negative feelings and quick to love and kindness. I try my hardest to show others love where ever I am. I want others to feel the love of their Savior through me, as I live how He would. I read from the Book of Mormon nearly every day, and I pray (at least) once a day. I attend church every week, for I know that gathering with others, learning from them, and feeling the Spirit with them is very important to my own spiritual growth and stability. I strive to help others whenever I can.
