Hi I'm Nathan Spencer

I am the second oldest of six kids, I grew up in Southern Utah, served a mission in the Czech Republic, and I am a Mormon!

About Me

I consider myself a jack-of-all-trades; I like doing a little bit of everything. I am recently married and am going to college at USU. I'm working towards getting a Bachelor's of arts in Business Administration.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in an active LDS home, but I didn't really try to find out if what was being taught was true until I was about 14. The prophet at the time encouraged every member to read the Book of Mormon before the end of the year. Up to that point, I had never tried to read it on my own. Every night before going to bed, I would try to read something from its pages. Often I would fall asleep and the going was slow. However, after several weeks of doing this every night, I noticed that I started reading more and more and I seemed to be in a better mood during the day. Things that once bothered me now weren't such a big deal and I felt happier. When I finally finished the Book of Mormon, I did what was encouraged at the end of the book, which is to pray and ask God in the name of Jesus Christ if the Book of Mormon really is from Him. Alone in my bedroom I asked Heavenly Father if the Book of Mormon is true. After asking, I waited for an answer. What I got was a thought that popped into my head that said, "You already know it's true". After considering for a moment, I realized that this was right. I know that man will get closer to God by abiding the principles and doctrines of the Book of Mormon than any other book, and that it supports the Bible in teaching us the truth. I'm now older, and have gone through many good times and difficult times-some from my own actions, but I know that true conversion is a lifelong process and it takes hard work. I am happiest when I do what I know to be right. It's never easy, but it always works out. There is nothing that has brought me more peace, comfort, confidence, and happiness than the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I am new in my ward, so as of right now, I just have home teaching as a calling and teaching a lesson once in a while at church. I am still getting to know the other members and doing my best to be willing and helpful in any situation.
