Hi I'm Natalie

I grew up in Montana. I love sports, exercise and the liberal arts. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving a mission for the church and loving it! I have never been so happy. I love exercise and how good it makes me feel and I love playing soccer. I played in high school and one year in college. I am a cosmotologist.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the constant peace and joy that is available to me as I try my best to live the teachings of Restored Gospel ofJesus Christ, and because I know the Book of Mormon is true. And because I know and have a spiritual witness that the Book of Mormon is true and of God, I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet called of God. And because I know Joseph Smith was God's prophet I know that this is Christ's Church once once again established in its fullness on the earth today. I was raised in the church but growing up I really struggled with Anxiety. It had negative effects on my family and also big learning challenges at school. At times I would feel so stressed and overwhelmed it would be all consuming even at a young age. I remember attending a youth devotional in our chapel. As I listened the strongest peace I have ever felt came into my heart. I knew it was the Spirit. I wanted to do all I could to to keep that peace in my life. It meant so much to me. Through living what I believe I have found the greatest peace and joy and is centered in my Savior Jesus Christ. Whenever I am struggling, reading the Book of Mormon is one special way that peace is available to me. I know it is because it was written for our day and the challenges we face.

How I live my faith

On my mission I get the opportunity to live my faith in a very special way. Everyday we get to go out into the community or wherever we are and talk about Jesus Christ and about the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We also get many opportunities to serve and lend a hand to those we meet. I get to wear a nametag that also has the Savior's name on it and reminds me that I am trying to be like Jesus and do what He would do while I serve.
