Hi I'm Nate Girsberger

Im a pitt bull wrastler, trey ball shooter, people call me Griz, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Nate, but people call me Griz! I was born in Southern California and lived there for 13 years before moving to South Jordan, Utah. I am a big sports fan. I love to play basketball, football, golf, baseball, biking, and ridin dirtbikes. My favorite sports teams include, LA Lakers, Los Angeles Angels, and the New England Patriots. I have a wonderful family whom I love very much! I love to stay active and lift weights in my spare time. In the future, I plan to go to school and become a physical therapist. Oh, and eventually get married too..

Why I am a Mormon

This church is awesome and I KNOW that this is Christ's true church! It has the complete keys and fullness of the Gospel. Growing up in the church helped me have the standards I have today. During high school, I wasn't very fond of the church and never had a real testimony of The Book of Mormon. I knew church was good for me and my family, but I took it for granted. I started to do what I want, when I wanted, and disreguarded the teachings of the church and my parents. Then I was humbled and my conversion proccess began. Everything I did on my own brought me pain, sorrow, and guilt. As soon as I changed my mindset and became more in-tune with Spirit, I started feeling much more happiness. I began to realize that commandments are set up only to prevent feelings of pain and sorrow. They may be hard to follow at times, but are TOTALLY WORTH IT!! Becuase of the change, I have become a better person who has a true testimony of the blessings that come from obedience to the commandments. I know the Book of Mormon is true. It is a second witness that Jesus the Christ is our Savior. Through Him, we can return to our Heavenly Father in a state of "never-ending happiness". What a great promise!

How I live my faith

I have been set apart as a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I was assigned to Chiclayo, Peru, but am serving in Greenville, SC for the time being as I wait for my visa to come. I spend my time teaching the doctrine of Christ (Faith, Repentence, Baptism, and Enduring to the End) to people 24/7! And I LOVE IT!!! I also love promising blessings for those who accept the Gospel and live it worthily!!
