Hi I'm Natalie

I love chocolate, ice cream & working out. I am a wife and mother of 6 wonderful children. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married to a wondeful husband and stay busy with six children, and loving every minute of it. What I enjoy the most is spending quality time with my family. I love summer time the best when a schedule doesn't matter but playing every minute does! I do make time to for myself by waking up early to read my scriptures and to work out. These two things rejuvinate me and prepare me for the rest of my day. I do try and squeeze in some time for my new found joy...digital scrapbooking and creating movies from video clips. I love projects that preserve memories for my family. I try to make my life simple, not filled with "stuff" so that I can enjoy the most important thing to me...my family!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in a strong LDS home. We prayed, had scripture study, went to church, went camping, played games and spent many hours of quality time together. In high school I remember being challenged from a member of the church to pray and know for myself if the church and the Book of Mormon were true. It was time that I stopped leaning on the testimony of my parents. I took the challenge and as I was studying in the book of Alma (in the Book of Mormon) I felt like the chapter was meant for me. It was the answer that I was looking for. I knew that the church was true by the feeling that I felt. I know that the feeling was made known unto me by the Holy Ghost, just as it was made known to Alma through the Holy Ghost. I am grateful that I had that experience. It has been strengthened in countless ways since then. I can't imagine my life without the gospel and the truths that it holds. It brings so much joy to my life that I can't imagine living without it. The Gospel molds who I am and the lifestyle that I live and I love it!!!

How I live my faith

I have served in many different areas in the church. I am currently serving in Cub Scouts. I love being able to spend time with my own boys that are in the program and being around the Cub Scouts enthusiasm for life. I also enjoy visiting other women in the church. It is good to get with other women and to share feelings about the gospel and about lifes ups and downs. There is a special joy that I feel when I serve others. It brings happiness and peace to my life, which is just one of the many rewards I feel when I serve. I love reading the scriptures individually and as a family. These two things will help bring the spirit in our home and increase the love that we have for one another. It will also help my children combat the temptations that they will encounter in the world. Scripture study and prayer has also helped me many times when I have needed guidance and answers in my life. I have felt the loving arm of my Heavenly Father and the whisperings of the spirit help me when I have needed it. I know that he loves me and is aware of me and willing and ready to help me. I try to live my life in a way that would be pleasing to my Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ. I loved this quote and try to live by it..."Live so people who know you will want to know Him (Jesus Christ) because of you.
