Hi I'm Nathan

I'm a lawyer and a Mormon.

About Me

My wife and I have five children and are almost empty-nesters. I golf, read, and do a little gardening.

Why I am a Mormon

Being Mormon just makes life sensible--to know the eternal context for mortal life and struggles, our family and especially my relationship with God. There is more to this and us than we readily see, and the gospel truths restored through living prophets and priesthood keys illuminate the breadth and joy of what otherwise might seem to be a dark and a narrow existence. There is divine purpose and promise to my life, and I repeatedly rediscover that God is more intimately interested in me and my family than I thought. Being Mormon is a happy thing.

How I live my faith

I currently teach the 11 and 12 year-old boys on Sundays. I love their energy and enthusiasm, even when it refuses to be confined to my particular lesson plan. I have served a full-time mission in Central America, and deeply loved the people and the experience. Being married in the temple for time and eternity to my sweetheart is sublimely satisfying. Studying the scriptures and seeing the same truths taught in the Old and New Testaments amplified and tied together in the Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price is always exciting. I love Sundays, and going to church--I feel rested and peaceful even when it's a busy day. The Church is true, but finding that out is a very personal journey. That may sound limiting, but actually, if the Lord loves us one by one, how could it be any other way?
