Hi I'm Natalie

I am a college athlete. I love music and sports. I am serving a mission in Paris France. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in SLC all my life. I come from a large family, baby of 8. I studied at BYU for a year then chose to serve a mission. I love being active - running, swimming, hiking, talking to others! lSwimming, school, music, family is/was my life. Now in Paris France serving a mission, the most joy I have found is sharing that happiness and energy and joy I have found with others. And laughing is the best stress reliever! :)

Why I am a Mormon

I love this gospel; I am nothing without it; we are all nothing without it. It gives me hope and strength when I am struggling through life. It gives me a purpose to fight through hard times and it helps me see others who need help more than I do. The knowledge we obtain from this gospel is amazing. It gives me further insight on who I can become and lets me know that I am a special, the "one and only," only I can to what I was send here to do; I have a specific purpose. It also lets me know that life is not just about me. It is my duty and my happiness to help others in need. Christ gave his life for me, he suffered for me. In all of his doings he never thought of himself but strove to do good and help others. Becoming like Christ is the ultamite goal and achievent that will bring one the most happiness in this world. This gospel is everything; all that truly matters lies within it. I am a Mormon because I love the happiness, joy, and knowledge it gives me. I know that this is the one way for me to get the most happiness out of my life and help the lives of many others.

How I live my faith

Everything is by example. We all fall down and make mistakes, but the trick is to get back up. Everytime we fall, everytime that horse kicks us off, or that bungy cord pulls and yanks us back after we've given our all, there is ALWAYS a hand being offered to help us try again, and again, and again. I try to live in such a way that I would be a good example to anyone and everyone; to be that hand ready to lift someone else up. Allow that light to shine forth, accept the helping hand, be that helping hand, and allow the light of this everlasting gospel -the good news- shine through our eyes and hearts! I love this gospel so much, I decided to serve a full-time mission and I have been assigned to the Paris France mission. I want to spread His gospel and share is amazing love with anyone and everyone I come in contact to - whether interested or not. Everyone deserves to know about His amazing life and gift to us.
