Hi I'm Nathan Mecham

I grew up in good ol' Emery County Utah. I love sports, music, math, science, and making fun out of everything!

About Me

I love the out doors. Growing up in small-town Emery County has helped me be grateful for the incredible gift that this earth is from our Heavenly Father. It is such a beautiful creation. We can run around and have fun! I also love sports; football, wrestling, and baseball are a few of my favorites. I also have a greater love for sports because it has taught me how much God loves me. He cares how well I do, He knows the struggles I go through, and he is there to help me on every down, match, or at-bat if I just ask for His help. I also love education and learning! Math and science are my favorite subjects. My best friend and I loved physics so much that we would calculate the velocity and altitude of a bowling ball launched out of a cannon. I recently returned from serving as a missionary in the Adriatic North mission. I served in the countries of Serbia, Bosnia, and Croatia. I am now currently studying at Brigham Young University.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon plain and simply because I know it is true. And I know it is true because of the witnesses I have received from God. God often talks to us through our feelings. As I have grown up, I have many times where I simple don't know how to explain the way I feel other than pure love. Some of these times have come when I prayed for help after being lost a forest, receiving a blessing of health after an injury in a wrestling match, and as I have shared the message of the restored gospel with others while on my mission. At these times when I feel God's love for me, I simply know and FEEL it is true.

How I live my faith

Before serving a mission, I served in many different ways. I held youth leadership positions in my local ward, performed service for my community, and tried to always stand up for what is right. My senior year in high school, I was asked to be the seminary president. I tried to set a good example for everyone. I would have good gospel discussions with my non-member friends on my sports teams. I would often invite them to come to seminary at our school. I also tried to be a friend to those who needed a friend. There is nothing that brings joy like making a new friend! Now after returning home, I have realized how important it is to live my faith by the little things I do. I read out of Bible and Book of Mormon every day. I pray and communicate with my Heavenly Father daily. I continue to look for ways to serve others and I find joy in that service.
