Hi I'm Natalie

I'm a registered nurse. I'm a quadruplet. I am a dreamer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am daughter of God- trying to make a difference in the lives of others. I decided I wanted to be a Nurse after volunteering at a local nursing home. It was at this point in my life that I realized that my hands could be the hands of God. My hands could someday heal the sick could lift the feeble kneed. I could make a difference. I still have so much more to learn and so little experience. But I know that serving others is service unto our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I have grown up in Rexburg, Idaho my entire life. I honestly can say that I have had a very ideal childhood! Imagine a freckled, blonde, barefoot girl running around in summer sun with a leotard on. ha yes I love basket ball and sports, but I also love ballet and music. My family is really incredible. My parents were the ones at every basket ball game, every piano and ballet recital, with the old fashioned camcorder and smiles! :) Like I said before, I am a quadruplet. I have a brother and two sisters that I have shared my birthday with! They are all my best friends. And then along came our little brother! I realy do have the best family in the world. :) I am now living in Brentwood, California. I absolutely love it here!! I am a live-in Nurse/Caregiver for my Great Aunt. It is a life of many challenges, but it is a life of service and happiness. For once in my life, I feel like I am where I am supposed to be and doing what I am supposed to be doing. I return to Idaho in December to work and finish school! :)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon...because two people fell in love. Both sets of my grandparents fell in love with the gospel and continued to raise their families in accordance to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. My family will be together forever because of their leap of faith and righteousness. I am a Mormon because of the feeling in my heart that I receive each and every time I pray. With each sunrise and sunset, every time it rains, and with each and every miracle of this beautiful earth-How can we live each and every day and not know that God does indeed exist?! He is everywhere. And He loves everyone. Every day I find myself saying, "Heavenly Father, why do you love me so much?" His love is eternal-it is perfect-and he will never leave me comfortless. I am a Mormon because I would be nothing without the Book of Mormon. I know that it is true with all of my heart. Every time I read its pages- I am blown away at its clarity and wisdom. Surely, this is a book directly from God. I know that God is real. But I also know that Satan is real. Life can be so hard. But with the help of our Heavenly Father, his beloved son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost all things can become possible for us. We can defeat Satan. We can find Happiness- and not just temporary Happiness- Happiness that can last forever! The gospel has no errors - it is the truth- and there is no other way. Someday, if I remain faithful, I will be able to live with God again and rest from all my earthly troubles. I am a Beautiful daughter of God. I am so very blessed to know this truth for myself! I have a testimony of the Prophet Joseph Smith as well as President Thomas S. Monson. I know that this church is true with all the energy of my soul. I know that when I pray- Heavenly Father is really there. He loves me and wants me to be happy. With His help, Someday I hope I can Become the best person that I can be- Perfect even as he is Perfect! :) In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving each and every day to Become more like Christ. I am preparing to serve a mission! The best part of my day is reading my scriptures and learning more about this wonderful gospel! I am been very blessed to have had many opportunties here in California to participate in missionary work. I want others to feel this happiness that I have from this gospel!! I struggle, just like everyone else, with temptations and trials. It is easy to become overwhelmed and focused on the trials of life. I am working on becoming the most optimistic person I know. I never hesitate to say hello to others. I strive each day to improve my testimony! I also live a life of service. I am everything to my Great Aunt. She needs me to help her to stand, to bathe, to live! It is very saddening how much we take our bodies for granted! She is a widow living in an aged body. I am so blessed to be able to hop out of bed in the morning and live and do what I choose. I want to live selflessly in all aspects of my life. I live my faith by believing and living by its teachings. I know that if I live righteously always looking to Christ- I am truly living a life worth living.
