Hi I'm Nate Knudson

I became a Mormon at age 18.

About Me

 I'm a software developer living near San Diego, California. I grew up in California and, aside from a 2-year mission to the Amazon Rain Forest, I've lived here my whole life. I've been married for 6 years since December 2004 and I have 2 phenomenal children.

Why I am a Mormon

 I grew up in a very religious household and was active in church all growing up. For a time I contemplated becoming a pastor and even received scholarship offers to pursue that vocation. Eventually though, I realized that the faith I'd been brought up in didn't have answers to all my questions. I found those answers in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

How I live my faith

 I try to be intentional in my faith, and I make my life decisions based on the wisdom of our Heavenly Father, not necessarily the logic of the world. I enjoy participating in church service and have served as a leader in various youth organizations, scouts, and even participated in the lay-leadership of our congregation.
