About Me

im nathan Rowley. I am currently serving a mission for my lord Jesus Christ. I am from the great state of California! I love to play volleyball indoors, outdoors, sand, grass and any other kind there is! the great outdoors are my favorite! Camping, hiking, wake boarding, body surfing, rock climbing, skiing, you name it ill try it! I love to travel and try new things.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a member of this Church because there is no other way that I can return to live with my Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and my Family. As i follow this church and Christ teachings I know its what my Father in Heaven wants me to do. I know that i draw closer to Christ through this church then any other way possible. Yes i grew up in the " mormon" faith but that is not why I am a member of this church. I had to find the faith myself. It couldn't be given to me nor could i just live off of others faith. I came to the realization that this church is true or its not. And that it stood or it fell with the testimony of one boy that claimed to have seen Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ when he was 14. I decided to start there. I slowly studied that event and thought about the information that I had found, and been presented with. I had the opportunity to go to Nauvoo for a summer camp that this church puts on called EFY. It was there as I walked the same ground that Joesph Smith walked his last week and even moments before his death that I received the answer to my many questions. It was not an "ah ha" moment or a physical manifestation of any kind. It was a feeling of peace that was unparalleled be anything I had felt before in my life that came over me slowly that whole week. That same feeling comes to me every time I recall the experiences I had that week. Also any time I recount the experience that Joseph Smith had in 1820 when the Savior of the world and his Father appeared to him to answer his honest prayer.

How I live my faith

I do my best to be an example of what I belive at all times. In the world today theirs many people that say one thing and do another. It trying to change that one person at a time and it starts with me. when i say im going to do something I do my best to do it no matter what. I'm not perfect and I make mistakes. I know ill never be alone when I do make mistakes. Christ is always there for me and for all of us when we fall down and need a hand up. I am also currently serveing a 2 year mission for this church. I am completly dedicated to this cause 24/7 7 days a week. I could think of no better Honor or way to serve the Lord.
