Hi I'm Nate Beeson

I have lived all over the USA. I also served a 2-year mission in Russia. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up all over the USA. I lived in Washington State, California, Nevada, Utah, Nebraska, Ohio, and Massachusetts. I also lived in Russia for two years. When I returned from Russia I came back to Utah to go to BYU. Shortly after I met my wife, Brittanie, and we got married. We now live in Lehi Utah with our two children, Isaac and Theodore and our dog Zeus. I own a small business selling education to potential investors.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a member of this church. Going to church every week was standard. Reading scriptures and saying prayers in the morning and at night were common in our house. I remember one time when I was about 7 years old, I told my parents that I didn't want to go to church that day, but I wanted to stay home and play. My Mom sat me down and explained to me that attending church was apart of our lives, that it was a valuable piece of what makes us happy. And if we take enough of those pieces away then we would struggle to find happiness. I didn't fully understand that until later in life but I had faith in what she taught me. I had many experiences as a young person to feel the influence of the Holy Ghost in my life. I was also blessed with many experiences that tried and strengthened my faith in the Lord. To answer the question though, when I live by the principles that the Church teaches I am blessed with happiness in my life. When I don't adhere to those principles as closely as I should I don't. I could share many personal, spiritual experiences about strengthening my testimony. But I would like to keep it as simple as I can.

How I live my faith

I help manage a group of Young Men in our church area. As part of the Boy Scouts of America we organize many service projects every year that provide valuable help to the community. I also teach Sunday School lessons that help young men navigate the difficult waters of adolescence. I also closely associate with a couple of families to make sure their temporal and spiritual needs are met.
