Hi I'm Natalie

I love to travel with my family, snowboard, and speak Spanish. I am a full-time missionary serving in the Eugene, Oregon mission.

About Me

I am a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints! I am serving in Roseburg, Oregon and I love being able to go out every day and teach people about Jesus Christ. I love my Heavenly Father so much and am so grateful for the countless blessings He gives me every day. I know that He is there for me and I am so grateful for that knowledge!

Why I am a Mormon

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only complete and correct church on the earth today. I know this because I have prayed about it, I have read the Book of Mormon, I have studied the teachings of the Church, and God has told me it is true. I never saw an angel or heard the voice of God with my ears, but through the Spirit of God, He has manifested to me through my heart and mind that this Church is truth. I know that God is our loving Heavenly Father and that He has given us guidance to help us return to Him. This is why I'm a Mormon. Because God watches over His church and this is exactly where He wants me to be. Only God the Father and Jesus Christ can bring true joy and happiness in this life and in the next, and I want to be happy, so I have chosen to be a member of His Church. I love life and I love God and His Son Jesus Christ, and I love being a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I am currently a full-time missionary for the Church, which means that I spend all day every day preparing to teach, talking to lots of people about the gospel, and teaching people about Jesus Christ. I know that God loves all His children and so I strive to live my faith by sharing that knowledge with everyone.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

In the Book of Mormon, in Alma 30:44, it states: "All things denote there is a God." I strongly believe that you can hear the voice of God and see His hand in countless details around you. When I spend time in awe of nature, admiring a sunset, hearing the giggles of a child, feeling the raindrops, and noticing countless other details in life, I know that those things manifest that there is a God, and that He wants us to be happy. He has created this beautiful earth for us so that we can see His hand and remember Him, and also enjoy the simple pleasures of day-to-day life. God is there, and I know He hears my prayers. Just take time to look around you and you will see that God is there, and He is there FOR YOU. Try praying to Him. He will answer you, in His own way and timing, but He will answer you.
