Hi I'm Natalie

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a stay-at-home mother of five children; my oldest daughter is 26 and married, and my youngest child (a boy) is a high school freshman. I love to read all types of literature, sew, cook, walk, chat with friends, meet new people, watch reality adventure TV shows and pretend to garden. (I admire real gardeners.) I also enjoy writing for pleasure and would like to write children's books. I was a Community Health Educator many years ago and am still interested in the health profession. I love to travel and would like to visit all 50 states. (So far I've been to 24.) Europe is my favorite destination.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the LDS (Mormon) church and have been an active member my entire life. I cannot imagine what my life would be like without the Church. The gospel of Jesus Christ influences every aspect of my life. It gives me meaning, purpose and direction. It is an anchor and beacon during hard times. It helps me raise my children. It provides answers to life's questions. It brings me true happiness.

How I live my faith

I have served in many capacities in the Church--as president of the children's organization, president of the young women's organization, and president of the women's organization. I have taught children, youth and adults. I have been a Cub Scout Den Leader (an assignment I didn't think I ever wanted, but ended up loving). I have lead and served on activities committees. I have been a visiting teacher for over 30 years, and had the privilege of having a blind companion many years ago. Currently I am working in the women's organization and we are planning a big service project to benefit women in the poor areas of Appalachia. Truth be told, doing service for others is my favorite thing to do--from making and distributing hygiene kits to the homeless in our area to making baby blankets for babies in South Africa to sorting donated used clothing that will be distributed world wide.
