Hi I'm Nathan Hebert

I am currently serving a mission in London. I love to swim, play video games, ski, wakeboard, and being a Missionary in London!

About Me

I don't really have one place that I could call home. I have moved around quite a lot in my short 19 years of life. Suffice it to say I'm grew up in California and Utah mainly. I have been a member of the Church for all my life. I am currently a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and I am loving it! I am serving in the England London South Mission, and it's great! Back home being a "normal" person, I enjoyed going boating, skiing, swimming, playing video games, and watching lots of movies with a nice bowl of popcorn. But for two years I will be serving as a missionary, away from all of that to help others come to know Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was growing up, I always just went along and went through the motions. I had always, done what I was told, and went to church but I never really got anything out of it. It was only about a year or two ago when I started really thinking about what I was doing, and if I really still wanted to be a part of this Church. I guess I decided I really just needed to find out for myself if this was really a path I wanted to go on. I either wanted to be all in or just get out. What it really came down to was my personal study and prayer. I had always heard people talk about the Book of Mormon and how they knew it was true. So I decided to really read the thing that everyone was saying was true. I eventually came to know by the power of the Holy Ghost that it was true. It wasn't really just one event that did it for me, but small spiritual feelings here and there. When I regularly read, I would get a small feeling inside on quite a few occasions, and then it would disappear. Sometimes they were a bigger experiences when I felt like it was talking to me. It was really through those small feelings that I had every so often that I finally realized it was true. Continuing to read The Book of Mormon and other scriptures continues to give me these spiritual experiences, to help continue to reaffirm that it is true. This helps me to also know that my family can be together after this life, and also that I need to personally share this happiness with others around me.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a missionary for the Church in London, England, and I love every second of it! As missionaries we teach people how to receive salvation through faith in Jesus Christ, repentance, baptism, receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. It is a road that will lead us back to our Father, and will also bring us a lot of happiness in this life. At times when I was not living the gospel as I should have, I felt as if I was missing something in my life, like there was a hole in my heart or there was something missing. I eventually came to realize that that was because I was not living as I should be. It was then when I changed and started to live the Gospel that I was able to experience that hole being filled.
