Hi I'm Nathan Loveridge

I Grew up in North Salt Lake, Utah. I love the Lord, I love science, I Love life, and I'm a mormon

About Me

I am from a family of six, Dad, Mom, Brother, and two Sisters. I love working on plays, moving props, running lights, sound, ETC. I also enjoy listening to music, and just having fun. I like hands on work, anything that i can build or mold or work on with my hands. It has always been amazing to me to see chaos become something with both function and form through a well thought out plan. I am thankfull for a Father in heaven who made a plan for me and all of mankind and builds and shapes each and every one of us into something with both function and form. I attended one semester of college before leaving on my mission studying Chemical Engineering. I have always loved Science ever since i was about 14. My science teachers were never a big fan of my side experiments, but i enjoy using the materials God has provided for us and seeing what i can do with them. I have always believed that science and religion can go together. I do not feel that science disproves God but that it is the way God works and that he slowly lets us learn how he works. I feel like God gives us knowledge to bless the lives of others and that is what i hope to be able to do with my knowledge of science. I am so thankful for The blessings i have recieved from my Father in heaven. i think that if we learn from each situation we are put into they will become a blessing for us, I believe if we are going through a hard time it is simply an opportuntity to learn and grow and recieve more blessings. I love my life

Why I am a Mormon

Simply put, because I know that the Book of Mormon is true. The church requires effort and dedication which I would not give if I did not know that this church was the one true church on the earth. the way I know that this is the true church is from reading the Book of Mormon and praying to know if it is true, when I did so I came to the realization that I knew without a doubt in my mind that this was the true church. From being a member of this church i have come to learn that Jesus Christ is the savior of the world, that my Father in Heaven loves me, and each person on earth, that the gospel was restored through the prophet Joseph Smith, and that there is a prophet today who i can follow and continue to learn from.

How I live my faith

I think living my faith starts in my heart by believing in my savior Jesus Christ. next by living according to his teachings. I strive to study the teachings of the prophets, apostles, and Jesus Christ through the scriptures every day. Studying the scriptures each day gives me the direction that I need in the changing world, while the world changes I can find the eternal unchanging truths taught by those whom God authorizes. each day I pray to my Father in heaven to help me and show me the way. I feel like when I Pray to God he not only hears me but that he is waiting and wanting to answer my prayer, I appreciate the time each morning that I have to talk directly to Him and ask for his help as i go throughout my day and then the time i have each night to thank him for the blessings of that day and talk about the trials or struggles i went through and ask for his help to get through each of them and to ask for forgivness for the mistakes i made that day. Repentance is a very important way that i live my faith. each day i make mistakes and i must constantly strive to do better and i know that i cannot without the Lords help. how thankful i am that Jesus Christ atoned for me and gave me the opportunity to repent and be cleansed from those feelings of guilt and shame that come from sin. each week i take the opportunity to attend church and partake of the Sacrament, or bread and water in rememberance of him, as a renewal of the covenent, or promise, i made to God at the time i was baptized that i will try my best to live by his commandments and by his example. As i do so i know that God promises me the constant companionship of the Holy Ghost, which teaches me and helps me to choose the right way. finally i live my faith by sharing it with those around me. i know the blessings that living this faith have brought my family and i and i want everyone to have those same blessings and i know that they can as they come to accept these truths that i have come to know and love.
