Hi I'm Nathaniel Connelly

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and I'm serving in the Utah Provo Mission!

About Me

I from Oklahoma City, OK and I'm serving our Heavenly Father in the Utah Provo Mission! I have a testimony of Jesus Christ and of the Book of Mormon I know it is true. I love Wrestling and Football. I plan to wrestling and play football at Dixie State.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason I'm a Mormon is simple. It makes sense. Christ is the author of this Gospel and it brings happiness into my life. This truly is the Gospel of happiness and it can be that for anyone. I'm a Mormon because I know this Church is true and I see evidence of this every single day of my life. I encourage all to partake of the goodness of this Gospel. I know that anyone can truly know for themselves that this Church is true and that this Gospel is the Gospel of Jesus of Nazareth. I know that our Father in Heaven will bless anyone with this knowledge if they seek Him with a real intent and a firm hope really wanting to know. I can promise this because I have done it and I have seen others do it and receive their answer. I'm a Mormon because this is true, this Gospel is centered on Jesus Christ and His Sacrifice for all of us. I'm a Mormon because I know these things to be true and anyone else can too.

How I live my faith

I have grown up in the gospel. But this doesn't mean that I have never had questions about the LDS church before. It has never been a struggle for me to love going to church and what I have been taught but I have had questions if it is true. One thing that keeps me deeply rooted in the gospel is the peace I feel when I am reading my scriptures and praying. I have a simple testimony but it is unchanging. I have felt the power of prayer in my life. I know that as long as this gospel teaches me to be a better, kinder, more Christ-like person, I will live it to my fullest. This gospel has brought so much comfort to me in my life that I can't imagine ever giving it up. I know that the promises in the scriptures are kept and that by obeying the Lord's commandments, we can return to live with him and have pure joy. This life isn't easy for a purpose. Satan is very real and will do everything in his power to draw us to a life of misery, but with the strength of God, we can grow from the hard times and become better saints. This is the true church and I am so grateful to be apart of it.
