Hi I'm Natasha Perkins

I grew up in Seattle Washington. I love to hip hop dance and play soccer. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I go to school in Idaho and I love it. I'm studying to become a sports trainer or a physical therapist. I love to Hip Hop dance and to play soccer. I love meeting new people and being around people. I really enjoy going to the mall and seeing all of the different styles, the creativeness that other people bring into this life is amazing.

Why I am a Mormon

This church makes me incredibly happy. There have been so many moments in my life that I have relied on the Lord and without him I don't know what I would have done. I can see Heavenly Father in my life everyday. I know that we are down here on this Earth for a reason and yes it can be completely hard at times but I know for a fact that as you look to our Heavenly Father that he will help you through those tough times. I have learned through those tough times that my Heavenly Father Loves me. Jesus Christ Died for my sins and he has felt every little pain and affliction for us because he loves us that much. In the Book of Mormon it talks about what he went through in Alma it says " And he shall go forth, suffering pains and afflictions and temptations of every kind; and this that the word might be fulfilled which saith he will take upon him the pains and the sicknesses of his people. And he will take upon him death, that he may loose the bands of death which bind his people; and he will take upon him their infirmities, that his bowels may be filled with mercy, according to the flesh, that he may know according to the flesh how to succor his people according to their infirmities... the Son of God suffereth according to the flesh that he might take upon him the sins of his people, that he might blot out their transgressions according to the power of his deliverance..." That is Why I am a Mormon! I love this Gospel and I love coming closer to Christ everyday!

How I live my faith

I try and serve as much as possible. This world is our community and if I can help in any way I will definitely try. There are many different opportunities that we have in the church and one of them is called visiting teaching. That is where we get to visit some of our fellow sisters in the church and see how they are doing. You want them to feel welcome so that when they come to church on Sunday's they don't feel alone. I try and make everyone feel comfortable at church, I don't judge you no matter where you come from I welcome you into my life. What I am doing right now though is serving a mission in the Texas Fort Worth mission. It is incredible because I have learned that Sharing my Faith is what makes my testimony grow stronger. I love this gospel and I want to share it with others because it makes me so happy. I know that my Heavenly Father has sent me to Texas for a reason and I love the people that I come in contact with every day. I love meeting new people every day and I am so glad that I get to serve a mission for 18 months. I have definitely come closer to my Savior Jesus Christ and my Heavenly Father since I have been out here!
