Hi I'm Natalee

I've lived in Idaho my whole life. I love being with my family. I love watching movies. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am eighteen years old, and have six brothers and one sister. I am the third oldest and love being with my siblings! They are my best friends. Right now I am going to BYU-Idaho. I love the uplifting atmosphere that BYU-I brings. I am majoring in Marriage and Family Studies. I love learning about the psychology of relationships. I enjoy watching movies with my family and friends, doing crafty things, playing with my niece, being outside, swimming, playing the guitar and piano, playing board games, and laughing.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been taught the gospel my whole life, but that doesn't mean that I haven't faced trials. With God's help, I have been able to grow and become a better person through those hard times. I know that the Lord will never leave us alone. We are all children of God. He wants us to succeed in life, and He gives us the tools to do so. He has called prophets to give us counsel on what to do. He has given us the Book of Mormon that brings us knowledge and comfort. He sent his son, Jesus Christ, to make it possible to return to live with Him again.Through experiences in my life I have gained knowledge that living the commandments of God is what brings true happiness. I know that this is the true church. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I have been taught about the LDS church my whole life, and was baptized a member when I was eight. Since I have always been a member I have been surrounded by the church my whole life. When I was thirteen I was called to help out my friends of my same age group. I helped plan activities and lessons we would have every week. As I got older, I realized that even though I was surrounded by members of the church, I could still help them. With help of my good friends, we have been able to reach out and serve others around us. I hope that I can be an example of the believers of Christ every day that I live.
