Hi I'm Nate Barker

I'm from Idaho and Utah. I am a mechanic and love mustangs! And I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am 24 years old currently studying at BYU-I. I love spending time with my wife and family members. I am a mechanic by heart, but studying business management. I love fixing old mustangs but my real love is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I am engaged to my best friend and look forward to having a family with her for all eternity, and am grateful that our Heavenly Father has allowed that blessing to all of us!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church because as I have prayed about the Book of Mormon and His church, I have grown to know the truthfulness in this church. I have seen as my Father in Heaven loves me and everyone around me that He does care and influences my life so much. I know from experience that lasting peace in this life can only be found by living His gospel, The members that I have associated with have been so kind and loving. And the joy that comes from living His gospel is tremendous! Everything is so complete and there is no emptiness in life. I found peace in knowing my purpose in coming to this crazy world.

How I live my faith

I try to make it ingrained in me and make it so anyone could tell I am a member of His Church. I enjoy reading from the new testament and picturing Christ's life and imagining as if I was there with Him. I love sitting down with people and sharing my love for the scriptures and how much joy you can have by living all the commandments that Christ has given. I am serving a full time mission as a servant of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for His church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I know that this is true and share with others that he does love and care for us and how we can return to Him. I seek opportunities to serve in any way that I can. I love reading the scriptures and actively strive to help others gain a faith in Christ themselves.
