Hi I'm Nathan

I love everything Harry Potter, BUT I love the gospel of Jesus Christ even more. I'm a Mormon. I know it. I live it. I love it!

About Me

I am currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in San Diego. Before I left I finished a year of college. I want to go into elemantry education. I love working with kids. I have always liked school. I think that is why I do not want to leave. I enjoy reading almost anything. I love to read Harry Potter. Anything Harry Potter will make me happy. One of my hobbies is cooking. If I have the recipe I can make it. I also enjoy making desserts. I really enjoy watching movies.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. I was raised in the church all of my life. My parents started me out when I was very young reading the scriptures. I did not always enjoy waking up at six every morning to read the scriptures before I went to school, but I know that because my parents had me do that my testimony of the gospel is so much stronger then it would be if I did not read the scriptures while growing up. I have always gone to church. I love going each week. Some say that they are "forced" to go, but I choose to go. I know that by going to church with an open mind and a willing heart that you will always enjoy the church meetings. I look forward to going to church each week because that is where we can partake of the Sacrament. It is when we can renew our baptismal covenants with our Heavenly Father; to again promise that we will always follow him and to be examples of the believers. The lessons that we learn in church are amazing. The peaceful feeling that I get while at church is the power of the Holy Ghost. It testifies to me that the church is true. While in high school I attended seminary and in college I went to instutite. By learning about the gospel during school made everything better. Not only was I able to continue learning, but I was able to seperate myself from the world for a time. I was able to focus on what matters most. It made my schooling much better. I was able to learn what my teachers wanted me to learn without much problems. The gospel blesses my life in more ways that I can even imanage. I am now serving a full-time mission for the church in San Diego. I would not be here if I did not know that the church was true. I know this church is true. I know that the prophet Joseph Smith really saw God the father and Jesus Christ. The priesthood was restored back to the earth and baptism is the first step back to God. God loves all of his children. Through the Gospel of Jesus Christ families can be together forever. I know this to be true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example to those who see me. I try to live the best that I can. I am not perfect so I really have to trust in the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I love teaching the gospel to others. Because I am serving a mission that is what I do every day. I work hard to live my faith each day. It is not always easy, but the blessings that our Heavenly Father has in store for us by living his gospel are great.
