Hi I'm Nate

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love any kind of sport, especially golf and racquetball. I work as an insurance agent, helping people plan for their future. I have two little boys and have been married for almost seven years. I love my family and want to be with them for all time.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I have had a personal witness from God that it is His church on earth today. I know that He restored His church through the prophet Joseph Smith, just as He has done in the past through other prophets. I obtained my personal witness by studying The Book of Mormon. Toward the end of the book, in Moroni chapter 10 verses 3-5, a challenge is given to ponder the things written there and then ask God if they are true. I did just that. After several days of asking about its truthfulness, God, through His Spirit, confirmed to me that it was true. His church has been restored. I know this is true. That's why I'm a member of His church.

How I live my faith

I currently have a calling in my church to be the Wolf/Bear Cub Scout leader. It's a blast to help these young boys learn the principles of scouting, which go hand in hand with the principles of Christ's gospel. I have the opportunity to help them learn about faith, their country, health, and many other important subjects. In my church I also get to visit with families and help them where they need help. It's a wonderful opportunity to serve them and build friendships.

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Nate
We definitely believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly. One of the unfortunate things that happened in history was that men changed some of the original writings of the Bible and some precious truths were lost. That's why He gave to us the Book of Mormon, to stand as another witness of Jesus Christ next to the Bible. I know it's true. I personally love the Bible! There is so much there that can enhance our understanding of Christ's gospel. I particularly like the parables that Jesus told when he was on earth. Show more Show less
