Hi I'm Nathan W

I'm a Wisconsinite. I'm a student. I'm a friend. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Wisconsin. I have lost my accent and I no longer use the word "bubbler" but I am still a cheesehead. I have gone to a few years of college in Utah and have lived in California during my missionary, service trip. I study chemistry. The Lord has blessed me with an internship near home, and I get to spend time daily with my brother, sister, and parents. I know I have a lot of future ahead of me. I don't know where it will take me, but I am trying to be open to it.

Why I am a Mormon

It makes me happy. I was born into a Mormon family. I have studied the Bible and the Book of Mormon. It makes sense to me that there would be records of God speaking to ancient people in the Americas. Most importantly, I know by my own spiritual witness that this real.

How I live my faith

I don't do anything fancy. I attend church on Sunday. I participate in fun church events. I pray alone and with my family. I am always telling myself I will read the word of God more, and I really mean to. I have always felt loved at church, and I try to help others feel that way. My responsibility in church is to help the bishop send the tithing and monetary donations to church headquarters. Confidentiality is very important. I have seen first hand that none of these donations are pocketed by the bishop nor any other individual in the church.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Nathan W
I feel the closest to the Lord when I pray, worship, repent, and try to follow His example of kindness. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

It is like the Bible. It is writings of ancient prophets during the same time period but in a different part of the world. This book is written somewhere in North/Central/South America. Show more Show less

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Nathan W
Mormon and other ancient prophets. Mormon lived over a thousand years ago. He helped compile all their civilization's holy writings. That is why it is called "The Book of Mormon," he compiled it. It is another testament of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
