Hi I'm Nathaniel

I moved from California to North Carolina when I was 8, and have live here for almost 10 years. I am a mormon.

About Me

I am the second oldest in a family of 9 people, including myself and my parents. Ever since I was young, I have been very interested in sports. I have been most interested in tennis. I played varsity for my highschool tennis team all years leading up to my senior year. I stopped to go to early college my senior year, so that I would have more time on the tennis court to persue my dreams. My dream is to play college tennis and hopefully make it to the pro level. I decided it would be best for my future to go on my mission at the age of 18.

Why I am a Mormon

In the beginning of my life probably up until the age of 11, I was living by my parents' testimonies. At the time, that was the reason why I was a mormon. Around the age of 11 and 12 I came to a realization the I actually needed to find out for myself whether or not this church is true, so that is what I did. I prayed and studied my scriptures, and received a spiritual confirmation that what I was reading was right. 6 years later of studying and praying, my simple belief has turned into a sure belief that the Book of Mormon is true.

How I live my faith

Before I aged out of mutual, I would participate in many youth activites. There have been many service opportunities that I have participated in with my youth group. I have gone to the soup kitchen, the bishop's store house, and the occassion mowing of the lawn for the elder people in the ward. These experiences have been wonderful experiences that have taught me more about the pure love of Christ. Now that I have aged out of mutual, I just go out with the missionaries in my ward to help bring others unto Christ.

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a Mormon is wonderful. It is the only path back to our Heavenly Father. I feel that being a Mormon is so wonderful because the commandments that we are taught and choose to follow keep us from much grief and dispare, which I am very grateful. The peace that you feel, know that you know what is required to return home to our loving Heavenly Father is so pure and great; there is no other feeling of happiness that can match that.
