Hi I'm Nathan

I was adopted. I have a red goatee. I love the Savior, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was adopted at 3 months and raised by faithful and committed Latter Day Saint family. I know now as an adult how the family i was place in was prepared for me and my needs specifically as a child of God. I hope all those reading this consider adoption and the blessing that come from choosing it. Wither you are birth parents or adopting parents. I am so greatful for ALL of the parents that were involved in my life. In my childhood i had a passion for baseball and played through high school. I still love going to games wither they are MLB, College or High Scool or even Little League. In 2012 a goal of mine is to start umpiring at any level to stay close to the game i love. I am a middle child. I have an older sister Kimberly (8 years older) and a younger brother Eric (2 years younger) who i love. Ive been married since 2005 to my wife Rosanna Lee Stafford and hope to attend the Temple and be sealed to her this year. Another goal of mine:) I love my wife so very much and i know she loves me i feel it all the time from her. We've lived in north phoenix, ahwatukee and now mesa Arizona. And yes it is hot here! I own a small cleaning service business based in phoenix and love what i do. My wife is a massage therapist. We hope to start a family soon and love the ward we are in. If you look you can find so many wonderful people right around you if you just get to know them.

Why I am a Mormon

Im a mormon because i wanted to know truth and sought to know what was true at a young age. I was raised in the LDS faith but had many challenges as i was growing up even though my parents and family were so good to me. At 19 i couldnt consider myself religious or even spiritual at that point in my life. I had forgotten my families faith. Through several trails and blessings that year at the age of 19 I had been giving a witness from my Heavenly Father and through the Holy Ghost confirming that He is real. That God will answer your prayers. He is listening if your willing to ask. I also came to know that year that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer and that His Priesthood had been restored to the earth by the Prophet Joseph Smith. That the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. And that Joseph and others restored the Church of Jesus Christ in these Latter Days. So why am i a mormon? I prayed and asked God over and over again to reveal truth to me and this is what he revealed to me through my fasting and prayer. Seek and ye shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you.

How I live my faith

I am still learning how to live my faith. My wife is the greatest example to me in how to do this. Lately i have been learning to be ready and willing for what blessings/trials come day to day knowing that God is here with me to go through them.
