Hi I'm Natalie Erickson

I love to help other people and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been born and raised in Arizona. When I was a baby I had heart surgery. The doctors thought I would either become deaf, blind, or even dead, but in the end I am healthy and alive. When I was 14 I had scoliosis, my spine had an "S" curve. My back was so bad, I had to get surgery. The doctors thought they could not get my back completely straight. They were wrong, my spine is almost straight. I have graduated high school, and I am about to graduate with my Associates Degree in General Studies. I love to watch sports, particularly football, basketball, and baseball. I love going to sport events. I also really like to go hiking, running, and playing sports. Recently, I have gotten my mission call to the Washington Tacoma Mission. I am going to serve the Lord for 18 months.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 8 years old, I was baptized. I chose to live the Gospel because I have a desire to be happy and learn about it. When I go to church every Sunday, I feel happy and I am surrounded by people who love to go to church. I love to read the scriptures. I also pray everyday when I seeking guidance. I am very grateful for the opportunity to serve a LDS mission. I know for a fact that the Church is true and that God is there for me. I also know that the Gospel is true, and that the Book of Mormon is true. How I gained my testimony is through reading my scriptures, praying, and going to church.

How I live my faith

Every Sunday, I go to church at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love to go to church and learn about the Gospel. I was baptized when I turned 8 years old. I read my scriptures every single day.
