Hi I'm Nathan

I love mountain biking, root beer, barbershop music and cars. I'm a 6th generation Mormon.

About Me

I just graduated school with an Advertising degree--not that I plan on using it in the near future though. I'm currently working in the Automotive industry and loving it! I attend to my Father-in-Law who is a quadriplegic on a respirator in the evenings helping him in or out of his wheelchair and setting him up on his voice controlled computer. I really enjoy a good movie. Especially if it's with my awesome wife. We have two little girls--a 4 year old and a 2 year old. They're great. Things can be pretty hectic at times, but it's all worth it at the end of the day when we are gathered for family prayers and the 4 year old prays that "daddy can be home from work earlier so he can have more time to play with us." Is 5pm too late? Absolutely.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon simply because this gospel rings true in my heart. When I was a semi-wayward adolescent, I was at a crossroads where I couldn't just be content not knowing either way about the truthfulness of the gospel. I had to know! I decided then to find out. I began paying attention during Sunday School and saying personal prayers many times a day. My answer came in the form of music. I was listening to a boy not much older than I was at the time singing Be Still My Soul and my heart was open and ready to listen to the spirit. I got a powerful personal revelation then. It's my testimony that God speaks to everyone who listens.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving in the church and community. One of my areas of service is being the President of the Elders Quorum in my Ward. In case that's a new term for you, it's like a fraternity of about 60 men; same amount of partying, but less booze and more spiritual worship and service. As president, I see that we get together every Sunday for an hour of spiritual nourishment. We also have awesome social activities and community service projects several times a year. On a less formal front, I strive to be the "good mormon boy" all my co-workers think I am. My beliefs are no secret at my office. I feel like it's my responsibility to show the world that a person can live a rich spiritual life even amid the terrors and concerns of today.
