Hi I'm Nathan Sparks

I'm a southern Alberta boy, I love my guitars, longboarding, and the outdoors

About Me

I am 20 years old, my hometown is Stirling AB Canada, but for now I'm serving in the Toronto Canada mission. I enjoy doing just about anything outdoors such as; Hiking, Fishing, Hunting, and Camping. Right now I am only a high school graduate because I got out of school in June 2011, and worked at a welding shop until I got my mission call. It sure is a tough schedule out here to follow. I've learned so much about life and how be happy thru this whole journey. I believe the most important thing i've learned out here on my mission, is to just love people. I think everyone could be more happy in life if they saw the best in people, didnt judge them, and gave them a chance to make a positive impact in their life. I also like to think i'm wise and got this whole life thing figgured out haha :)

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was born into this church, i can definitely feel the difference in my life when I'm living the gospel or not. When I am living the gospel, I somehow find my life to be less stressful, more successful, and my relationships with my friends and family are healthy and strong. I know this description sounds very simple, and that's because it's that easy. I know that there is so much more to life, and that man has a grand and eternal purpose. This knowledge gives me hope for this world, for me, and for the life to come.

How I live my faith

Right now I'm serving a full time mission for the church in Ontario Canada, which includes working from 6:30am to 9:30pm helping people better their lives through Jesus Christ and his Atonement. As a missionary i do such things as going door to door, talking to people on the street, teaching in peoples homes, or doing volunteer service for anyone and everyone. This is my life for 2 years. It's so amazingly rewarding, and I find that this experience is helping not only others, but myself to become a better person, and more like the savior. it's completely selfless, and i find that the most amazing part of this experience. even though it's tough, it never really gets to you because you dont have time or the disposition to think of yourself haha
