Hi I'm Nathan

I am a husband, a father of four kids, a youth sports coach, and I love college football. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My wife and four kids recently moved to Georgia. We spent our summer finding pools, lakes, or rivers where we could escape the hot Georgia sun, and now we spend our weeknights doing homework, our Saturday's playing sports, and free time hanging out with our fantastic new neighbors. I work in sales operations management for a Fortune 500 company and enjoy the pressures of work. I love to ski (water and snow), watch movies, golf, and play with my kids. My favorite time of the year is October when I can watch/attend college football, NBA basketball, NFL football, and major league baseball all in the same weekend!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of my testimony of a LIVING savior, Jesus Christ. I know that he lives, and that just as in ancient times he speaks to us today through living prophets, special witnesses of his divine nature and reality. Living prophets testify of him, his doctrine, and His will for us during troubled times. By the power of the Holy Ghost, that Jesus promised the "Father" would send "to teach [us] all things" (John 14:26), I have felt a confirmation in my heart that He lives, that He has not abandoned our world, but that He speaks to us today, and that He has a plan for me and my family. Jesus said, "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid" (John 14:27). I have found His peace, in His way, in His church.

How I live my faith

I strive to live my faith in every aspect of my life. In my home, I join with my wife in setting an example for our children. We try to read scriptures every day, pray as a family, and spend time with each other. My wife and I treat each other with love and respect and expect our children to do the same. I strive to live the same way at work as I do at home or on Sunday at church. At church, I attend my meetings each Sunday and I serve others as a Home Teacher. Home teachers are assigned families in their area where the Home teacher visits each month to share a spiritual message and check on the spiritual and temporal welfare of the family, offering assistance and service when needed.

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

Nathan
Grace is extended to all of our Father in Heaven's children if we are willing to do our part. What is our part? Have faith in Jesus Christ, repent of our sins and change our ways, follow the example of Christ and be baptized by immersion by one who holds the authority to act in the name of God, and receive the Holy Ghost by the laying on af hands. Although none of us can live a perfect life, all of us can find the truth, and witness to our Father that we are willing to follow His Son by following the Savior into the waters of baptism, and then in the Lord's time and through His grace we will be made perfect like Him. Through our temples the blessings of His grace are offered not just to the living but to the dead, all who have ever lived on the earth may experience the blessings of His grace. Show more Show less
