Hi I'm Nate

I'm a Mormon. I love being a member of the LDS Church. I love to play tennis and I love playing the saxophone. I am also a writer.

About Me

I love writing. I am going to school to get a degree in English right now in Salt Lake City. I love it here. I hope to be an English Professor and an author some day. I also love playing tennis. I love to play with my friends. I also play the saxophone, which I absolutely love. I play the tenor and the alto saxophone and I used to play in several groups at my high school. I also enjoy playing basketball.

Why I am a Mormon

I love what I feel every time I live my faith. Every time I go to church, read the Book of Mormon, bear my testimony and many other things, I feel the Holy Ghost more strongly in my life. I love going to church on Sunday with my friends and family. I also enjoy the new friendships I get to form as I go to church on Sunday and activities on other days of the week. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer and I know that through Him and faith in Him that if I repent and do my best to live by His commandments, I will be able to live with Him and my Father in Heaven again.

How I live my faith

Before my mission I served as a youth leader. At the ages of 12, 14 and 16 I was able to serve my fellow church members by helping them come closer to Christ and by planning activities that were fun and spiritual. Currently, I am serving a mission in the St. Louis, Missouri Mission. I love it so far! The people here are amazing and very faithful. They have helped me grow so much in the short time I have been here. I love being a full-time missionary with all my heart.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

While it is not a requirement to serve a mission, it is a commandment from our Heavenly Father that all male members should serve a mission. To me, a mission is a blessing in my life. I love serving the Lord and having a spiritual influence in my life all the time. Being able to do something I love and share our miraculous message with the world is not a chore to me it is a service to others and a huge blessing to me. Missionaries are all volunteers. Many of us pay for most of our expenses while serving a mission. We do it because we love all people and want to invite all to come unto Christ. Missionaries serve from 18 months to 2 years. We serve missions because we love all men, women and children and want all of our Heavenly Father's Children to live with Him again. Show more Show less
