Hi I'm Nolan

I am a missionary in Alabama. I love flying, building things, being outdoors, laughing and having fun.

About Me

I grew up in southwest Virginia in a small college town called Blacksburg. Growing up I participated in Boy Scouts. Every year we hiked at least fifty miles on Appalachian trail and I now have the bragging rights of completing over 250 miles of the trail. During high school I worked allot and spent four years employed at Kroger. The coolest thing I did in high school was participate in the my schools FIRST robotics team where we built robots to compete in different sport based competitions. I completed two semesters as a mechanical engineering student at Brigham Young University - Idaho and am now serving in the Alabama Birmingham Mission. I have a passion for aviation and flying. I enjoy the outdoors especially skiing and rock climbing, robotics, fencing, swing dancing, flying and playing board games with friends.

Why I am a Mormon

The church had always been there to support me through out my life. It is the true church the Jesus Christ established on the earth during his life and it has been restored today through Joseph Smith. God had not forgotten about us and still directs the world through our living prophets. I am a Mormon because of the impact the gospel has had in making me a better person and have a happier life. Heavenly Father never gives up on us and will always be there to help us through the hard times we face in life. The gospel of Jesus Christ encourages me to rise up and overcome and through Jesus Christ all things are possible.

How I live my faith

Living the gospel has benefited me in many ways and continues to bless me through out my life. By striving to live the commandments and doing what is right, Heavenly Father guides and directs us. The gospel blesses lives and changes people for the better and I am serving a mission to help others receive that knowledge and direction in their lives. As we humble ourselves and learn to trust God our faith will grow. He promises us that if we follow him he will bless us and everything will work out for our benefit and happiness.
