Hi I'm Natasha Beaumont

I grew up in Canada, B.C. I love everything to do with theater and the arts. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I 'm the oldest of four girls in a part member family and we're the only family in our family that are members. I was adopted by my Dad when I was five years old and it was one of the happiest days in my entire life. I love so many things and people it's hard to put all of them into words but I've always said that if you can understand my love for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and theatre you would know al you need to know about me. I love the feeling of freedom and I search for things that give me that freedom in my life. I get that feeling when I try to figure skate and when I run through the forest and explore, but I also get it everyday as I live my life knowing I have the freedom to choose win or lose in all things. One of my favorite things to do is to go on road trips and see all of God's beautiful earth. So far I have made it all over B.C., Alberta, Washington, Organ and Idaho. I tried to make it across Canada this summer but its really big and ten days is just not enough. I got as far as Toronto Ontario before coming state side home. I can't help feeling so much joy when I see all of the beautiful things the lord has created for us.

Why I am a Mormon

I knew a missionary once whose favorite saying was "church is true" and I guess thats the easiest way to say why I'm a mormon. Through out my life I have faced many challenges that could have easially caused me to leave the church, but I know the church is true. So what else matters? I know the gostple is true. In my family I'm the oldest of four girls all of which are related through my mom only. I also have two brothers and another sister in Arizona that I've only met once but I love them all the same. My Mom became a member when she was sixteen and she's struggled her whole life especially in her youth with bi-polar. She was married in the temple to my father and he was unfaithful. My Dad adopted me after he married my Mom and he's not a member. I've always had both sides and I've always felt like I made my journey in the gostple alone becuase my Mom couldn't come to church. I was about six or seven and we went to church after about three months of us being away. The feeling I got as a little child that day I will never forget. I knew in my heart that I needed to be there. I knew that it was the right place to be. After that I called for a ride every sunday to go to church when my mom couldn't make it. I have had many other whitnesses of the truth of this church and gostple. The biggest of all being the Book of Mormon and it's truth. I feel blessed to have been given this gostple and for the faith that I have. I don't want to imagen what I would have become with out it.

How I live my faith

I spend everyday trying to live the gostple. It's not something you do once a week on suday when you go to church it's much more then that. It becomes part of who you are. When you really believe in it you can see it everyday in the things you do. I have had several callings in the chuch to teach and be an example to others but I have had no calling more important than visiting teaching. It is amazing the blessing and love that comes through visiting teaching. I get the oppurtunity to get to know and love the sisters I teach in a way I never would have otherwise. Every sister I have ever known has always had so much to offer. They are like rays of sunshine in my life. I love the chance I get to see them grow and shine. we are all here to help each other and lift each other when we're down, It really is just amazing to see. when I was eighteen I got called to work in nursery and take care of the little ones while their parents attended classes or taught others. It was one of the best callings in the world. I got to share a few precious hours caring for these little angels. I would get to teach them about the beauty of the world and try and help them understand the things their parents were teaching them. They have so much love for everything. I was blessed to get to see it.
