Hi I'm Nathan

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Mesa, Arizona but moved away for school. I am happy to be back in the wonderful desert! I married a beautiful women who grew up just a few miles from where I grew up. We have an energetic little boy who teaches us patience. I am a civil/environmental engineer and am fascinated with how the world works.

Why I am a Mormon

God wants us to be happy. He sent His Son Jesus Christ to teach and show us the way to happiness. I have learned through my experiences and the experiences of others that I am most likely to be happy when I follow the teachings of Christ. It is in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that I find the teachings of Christ explained clearly. Here, God continues to share gospel truths to help me understand the path to happiness among all the competing and confusing teachings around me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith be trying to follow the example of Jesus Christ. I am far from perfect. Still, I find that when I am able to think and act like Jesus did that I am a more enjoyable person to be around and enjoy the company of others more. Ways that I try to improve my efforts to follow the example of Jesus are to read from the scriptures and pray to my Heavenly Father. I try to use clean language and avoid situations that would compromise my moral commitments to God. In doing so, I view my life more optimistically and feel friendlier toward others.
