Hi I'm Natalie Parker

I'm a Mormon. I am also a wife and a lacrosse mom. I love to spend time with my family. I love to craft, travel, shop, and read.

About Me

I grew up in Utah and have lived here my whole life. I was married in the Salt Lake Temple to my sweetheart Brian. We have four beautiful and busy children. I am a lacrosse mom, a dance mom, a soccer mom, or any other type of mom my kids need. My favorite thing to do is spend time with my family. We love to be in the outdoors. We camp, hike, some of us bike (not me, I don't have any balance). I love having craft projects and usually have several going. I enjoy reading in my spare time. I volunteer in the PTA and really enjoy the many experiences I have had there.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and have been LDS my whole life. But there comes a time in every persons life when you need a testimony of your own. Mine came when I was a teenager. As soon as I was starting to make decisions for myself I found I needed the guidance of the Spirit more than ever. I absolutely made mistakes and continue to do so today. Because of this I am so grateful for the Atonement of my Savior. I know he paid for my mistakes and provided a way for me to repent and return to my Father in Heaven when my time on this earth is over. I love my Savior and my Father in Heaven, and I know that they are real and love me too. Knowing that I have that divine heritage helps me stay on the path my Father intended for all of us.

How I live my faith

Right now I have the amazing opportunity to work with the youth in the Sunday School prgram. We are studying the life of the Savior right now. It's been amazing to listen to their testimonies and watch them grow right before my eyes. I am a visiting teacher which is rewarding even though it's a struggle to find a time in our busy lives when we can meet. I love each of the sisters I have gotten to know. I also appreciate the sisters that come to visit me. We have a great friendship and I know I can count on them for anything.
