Hi I'm Nathan

I'm a young architect and builder. I make bread and drink veggie juice and grow plants. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm Dad to five little ones. My wife and children are the sparkles in my eyes. I am an architect and contractor. If you turn around to look for me, you'll probably find me lagging behind, investigating how your building is put together. I am a bishop, which is similar to a pastor or a priest in other churches. It is the best experience, and the toughest, I have ever had. I love my people. I have jumped out of a plane during a full moon in full gear. I have seen Scouting save many men and young men from the pitfalls of life, myself among them. I am an Eagle Scout. Smooth Jazz? Yes. Fishing a river? Yes. Snorkling? Yes. Risk, Settlers of Catan, Rook? Yes. Chutes and Ladders? No, except with my kids. Wrestling, Track, Softball? Yes. Running? Only when I have to. Basketball? No, I leave that one for my wife. Harvard Business Review, Boys' Life, National Geographic? Yes. Pruning, Digging, Planting? Yes. Weeding? No. Fresh air? Yes.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are Mormon. They pointed me in the right direction and were examples of authenticity and devotion to God, community and family. But I had to figure out their beliefs for myself. That took a while. Slowly, patiently I discovered and continue to discover that I love the truth that my religion offers to everyone. In fact, I don't even think of my religion as Religion. It is the path along which I feel a loving Father wants me to take back to Him. It is my source for eternal, unchanging truth. God touched me, many times, and I know this is where He wants me to be. I love Him for it. Ask me anything. I'll share with you what I know... without speculation.

How I live my faith

One person at a time. One day at a time. One prayer at a time.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

They better not. That wouldn't be very Christ-like, would it? Show more Show less
