Hi I'm Natalie

I grew up in Oregon. I love my family and my friends. Playing soccer is my favorite thing to do. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

The best memories I have of growing up are of time spent with my family or my competitive soccer team. I've played soccer for most of my life and absolutely love it. I also played lacrosse in high school and twice my team went to the state championship. Once we won. I now attend Brigham Young University - Idaho where I love to play sports through the intramural program. School is also a big part of my life. I want to become a physician assistant and dedicate a lot of time to my studies. I love to spend time with my family and my friends. I especially love to go snowboarding and mountain biking with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this church is where I find comfort and peace and learn about my Savior, Jesus Christ. It is where I feel his love for me. I know that this is the true church and that we have had the fullness of the gospel restored to us. I am a Mormon because I believe that God restored his church to the Earth through the prophet Joseph Smith, and still leads our church through living a prophet. I have had my prayers answered and have been blessed for living the way the Savior would have me live. I have found joy in living the teachings of Jesus Christ and being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I grew up a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and was taught the gospel my whole life. Going to church every Sunday, attending youth meetings during the week, and looking forward to church camps in the summer was something I grew up with. Now that I am older I live my faith according to what I was taught growing up. I pray and read my scriptures daily. I give talks at church when I am asked and accept callings. My most recent calling was to be a teacher in one of the classes the women attend while at church every week. I also participate in visiting teaching, where I visit with other women I attend church with. I teach and learn from them and try to help them in any way I can.
