Hi I'm Nathan Walton

I grew up in Highland, Utah. I'm leaving for two years to serve as a missionary in Guatemala. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've grown up in a LDS-family, surrounded by amazing members of the church. I've been competitively playing sports, mainly soccer, since the age of 3. I love writing, poetry, reading, and listening to music that inspires my creative side.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know of the plan He has for me and the rest of His children. The church has given me guidance and principles that have kept me safe as a young man, and have kept my faith strong. Many people outside of our religion view us as people restricted and neglected from many things the world participates in, but I know that our church has these morals to keep us strong, and help us find true happiness. I know this is His restored Gospel on earth through my testimony of the Book of Mormon and the accounts of His prophets here on earth. The church has guided me through my trials and struggles in life, and continues to help me make my way back to our Heavenly Father. I have a strong testimony of this Gospel and because of this, I have chosen to take two-years of my life and been called to go and teach this gospel to the people in Guatemala and share my testimony with them.

How I live my faith

I participated in many callings growing up in the church which have helped me strengthen my testimony. Serving as the 16-18 age young men's 1st assistant has taught me patience, leadership, and given me the opportunity to make new strong friendships. Participating in the young men's program has given me the chance to share my testimony about this gospel, and taught me necessary skills needed in life. The church and youth programs have taught me so much as a young man, and kept me on the straight-and-narrow path back to our Heavenly Father.
