Hi I'm Natalie

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am wife to my sweetheart of 15 years, mom to 6 amazing kids. I happily stay home full time to take care of my family, though look forward to returning to school (someday) to get my nursing degree. My hobbies include food, cooking, good health, reading and running. I have run many 5Ks, 10Ks, and two half-marathons. I have a passion for healthy living and reading to my children. I still read to my older kids and they love it! My whole life revolves around my membership in the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It is my greatest source of happiness.

Why I am a Mormon

Because the church is TRUE. Though I grew up in the church I did not gain a true testimony of it until I was in college when I decided to find out for myself, once and for all, if this was Christ's true gospel on the earth. I studied the Book of Mormon, prayed, and put Moroni's promise to the test. I've never felt such a flood of warmth and truth fill my soul as that night I prayed about the Book of Mormon. If it was true, I was going to put my heart and soul into it completely. I never do anything I don't believe in. And not only do I believe in this gospel, I know it is true with all of my mind and heart. The Holy Spirit told me so!

How I live my faith

I do my best to abide strictly to the teachings of the gospel, because I know the blessings that come when I do. My family studies the scriptures each morning, and I study personally as well. We pray day and night and hold Family Home Evening each Monday night. I attend all of my meetings and serve in the women's organization of our church. I also participate in the Visiting Teaching program by visiting 3 other women each month to share a message and testimony with them. I also stay in tune with their needs and try to help them in whatever capacity I can. It may sound like a lot of work and effort, but I know that our Heavenly Father blesses us openly when we are obedient. I strive to be obedient and in return God has blessed me with more love and happiness than is possible to describe.
