Hi I'm Nathaniel

I grew up in Washington and am now currently serving a mission in Texas. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to read, play basketball, history and learning new things. Before my mission I was doing schooling and working on becoming an engineer. I am currently serving a church mission in Texas sharing the Gospel with others. I have a wonderful family, with my mom then my dad and stepmom. I have three siblings an older sister and a younger brother and a much younger sister. I really enjoy my family and love spending time with them. I love the age diversity among my brother and sisters, it leads to a lot of fun. I am really blessed to have the family that I have.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a Mormon and have been really thankful for the influence of righteous parents who helped me at a young age to learn right from wrong and to develop standards that are in accordance with the teachings of Christ. The reason that I am a mormon is becuase it is something that I know to be true. I have recieved answers to my prayers multiple times confirming to me that this is what God wants of me and where I should be. I have felt and experienced the fruits of the spirit as spoken of in Galatians 5:22-23. I have felt the love, joy, and peace come into my heart as I have prayed and asked Heavenly Father if this is where i should be. I have also felt spirit help me to begin to develop the qualities of longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance. As I have striven to live the commandments and do the things that our Father in Heaven expects from his children I have seen myself slowly become a better person. I am a Mormon becuase i know that this is the Church of Jesus Christ once again established upon the earth. I know that He is directing his Church through a living prophet. I know that the Book of Mormon is a volume of scripture written by ancient prophets and translated by Joseph Smith as directed by God. I know these things by the still and quiet whisperings of the Holy Ghost and that is why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to become more like our Savior and to try to help others as he would. As a missionary I share with others His Gospel and His teachings. I do this because I know that it is through living by His teachings that we can experience peace and happiness in this life and in the life to come. As missionaries we take that gospel to all that will listen. We also offer service to those that we meet and help those in our areas.
