Hi I'm Nate

I'm creative. I'm a movie and music lover. I'm a basketball and baseball player. I'm a dreamer. I'm a brother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love creativity. I love to come up with new ideas, share those ideas, and get feedback on those ideas. Others creativity inspires me. When I see someone elses work: whether it's art, music, video, or any other skills or talents it inspires me to try new things or improve my own talents and abilities. I love music. I love listening to music, I love playing music, and I love hearing others play music. It truly helps me to feel peaceful. My instrument of choice is the piano. I've only had two years with a teacher, but one day when I was 17 I just sat back down at the piano and started to play. I wouldn't say that I'm really good, but I do it because it feels good. I love sports. I play basketball and baseball. I follow professional sports and some college sports. I was always practicing as a kid, and it always helped me to relieve the stress of life. There is just something about team effort and unity that I've always loved whether it was in basketball, baseball, or football it looks like art. My teams are the Utah Jazz (basketball), Atlanta Braves (baseball), and the Pittsburgh Steelers (football). Something about me is that I love hearing people laugh. It makes my day when I hear someone laugh. In effect, I like to do things that will create laughter. Otherwise I'm a pretty quiet guy.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that God is there. I've known it since I was 11 after reading my scriptures one day. I read in 2 Nephi chapter 2 verses 11-14 in the Book of Mormon and it really hit me that God really is there and he really does love me. From that testamony branches all that I know and believe. God sent His Son so that my life matters, faith matters, repenting matters. I also know that because Christ lives that I will live too. God has a plan. Apart of that plan is the family. God calls prophets, or helpers, to tell us what we need to do now to follow Christ and be happier. I know that God is there and he loves me.

How I live my faith

I try to do all that I can to be close to God. I read the scriptures, I pray a lot, and I try to follow close to the promises that I make with God. I try to have a smile on my face all the time and a good attitude about things. I feel like I've been blessed with the ability to see the good in people. I'm not perfect by any stretch of the word, but I feel like God wants me to do my best and be my best. I do all that I can to serve people around me. Another thing is that I feel like God wants me to learn all that I can so I look for what God wants me to learn in most every situation that I'm in. I live my faith by just living it; I try to be what God wants me to be.
