Hi I'm Nathan

I live in Minnesota. I'm working to find a cure for cancer. I'm a Dad of 4. I love to travel. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a dad of 4 beautiful children. I love playing and watching sports. I work as a Statistician doing cancer research. I love spending time with my family. We tend to travel a lot and I've been to every state in the US, except Alaska and Hawaii. I love playing with my kids and seeing new sites.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, in part, because I was raised in a Mormon family in the great potato state of Idaho. I am so grateful I was raised in the Mormon faith with loving parents who taught me the gospel of Jesus Christ by example. They taught me from a young age to follow the example of Jesus Christ and to avoid drugs, alcohol, and smoking. Despite the wonderful family I grew up in, it wasn't until I went out on my own for 2 years on a Mormon mission that I really learned to appreciate my family and the great land of America. While on my mission to Australia, I gained a powerful witness that Jesus Christ is my personal Savior and that he loves me. I also gained a knowledge through prayer and study that the Book of Mormon is another true witness of Jesus Christ, as is the Bible. The more I live my life, the more I realize that happiness only comes through following the teachings of Jesus Christ. I am so grateful to be a Mormon, where Jesus Christ is truly at the center of my faith. I love attending church with people who not only believe in Jesus Christ, but strive to become more like him every day. I'm a Mormon because it brings me peace, happiness, and direction. I am truly happy to be a Mormon and I love to share my Christian faith with others. I am also grateful that God continues to speak through a living prophet today, just as he did in Bible times. God truly loves us today as much as he ever has and will lead us, as we seek him through prayer.

How I live my faith

I teach a Sunday School class to 12 year olds at church. I also teach an Elder's Quorum class as well about once or twice a month. I teach them the gospel of Jesus Christ from the scriptures. I love sharing my knowledge of Jesus Christ with them. I also regularly visit a few of the families that attend our church to share a message of hope with them and help them, as needed. I also love helping others as well. I love spending time with my family and sharing my faith with them.
