Hi I'm Nathan

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a cartographer, a musician, an introvert, father of four and I am a Mormon. I enjoy programming computers,especially the creative process that goes into making something worthwhile. You are more likely to find me playing with the kids or reading a book than watching sports. Peace and quiet are my friends, though with four kids, they are seldom found around. Together we make enough ruckus to wake the dead, but we are usually having so much fun they would want to join in too.

Why I am a Mormon

One of the things that I have found important in life is truth. Truth can be found in most everything, but often it is mixed with messages born of other motives. The gospel of Jesus Christ, on the other hand, is full of truth and light. Through it I have learned to recognize my own weaknesses, to see those things I have hidden from myself, and I have found power to work on changing them. I have found my loving Heavenly Father working by my side to bring these changes to fruition. The Atonement of Jesus Christ was accomplished for this purpose, so we as imperfect people could make mistakes, learn from them and improve. It is these simple truths that give me hope for tommorrow. God is aware of each of us and will be as involved in our lives as we are willing to allow, but he will never force us in anything. His truths are simple to understand and bring a clarity and value to life that I have found nowhere else.

How I live my faith

It is my privilege to be the pianist for our choir. Music is an important part of our worship and it is great to contribute to the spirit of our meeting. I have had the opportunity to work in our Cub Scouting program over the past few years, leading one of our congregations dens, as my son progressed through it. Currently, I am involved with helping my son grow and advance in our Boy Scout troop. Finally, I get a chance to share what little I know with my brethren, as a teacher in our Priesthood meetings. Gratefully, my brothers fill in the gaps and we enjoy learning together.
