Hi I'm Nate

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to listen to music. I enjoy playing the piano and acting like I can sing. I am currently a missionary. I love sports and good food.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a Mormon all my life, but I am currently a missionary and continue to follow the restored gospel of Jesus Christ because I have come to know through study and prayer and from experience that I am a son of God and that by following His prophets I am doing the things He wants me to do. I want to have all of the blessings He wants to give me, and I am striving to live in a way that I can receive those blessings.

How I live my faith

Right now I am a missionary and I live my faith by sharing the gospel with as many people as I can each day. I get to talk to lots of people and try to share with them what I know to be true. I strive to live the gospel of Jesus Christ by studying the scriptures to learn about Jesus Christ and then applying what I learn to become like He wants me to be. As a missionary I get to help other people to do that too. There isn't anything more enjoyable than seeing God help people to change their lives and follow the commandments, and seeing how much happier they are when they follow Him.

Do Mormons practice polygamy?

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Nate
The missionaries come by to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. How God is our Father and has a plan for us here on Earth and wants us to be able to live with Him again. He showed us the way we can do that by sending His Son Jesus Christ to live as a perfect Example for us and then suffer and die for our sins. This makes it possible for us to change ourselves and overcome sin and become better and better as we try to follow Christ's example in living our Father's plan. Christ was also resurrected and made it possible for all of God's children to be resurrected too. Missionaries that come to visit you will also talk about how God teaches us about His plan and about Jesus Christ. God chooses men to be prophets, who receive direction from Jesus Christ directly and then teach the world the things He wants us to know and do. The Bible and other scriptures like the Book of Mormon come from records of prophets' teachings. We share that God has called a prophet today to teach us in our modern-day world too, so that we can know how He wants us to follow Him today. Everyone is invited to pray and ask God if this message is true and then to follow it, so the missionaries will likely invite you to read the Book of Mormon and pray to know it's true, and then to follow Christ's example by being baptized by His authority. Feel free to ask them any question you have and don't let the ties and the nametag scare you. They're good guys, however odd they may seem. Show more Show less
