Hi I'm Nathan

I grew up in Utah. I enjoy basketball, camping, movies, and being with friends. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just graduated from high school with a 3.9 and passing five AP tests. A couple years ago I received my Eagle Scout award, and a few years previous to that I earned my first degree black belt. I enjoy movies and books, like Harry Potter, mysteries (Psych, Sherlock, Columbo, etc.), Indiana Jones, Star Wars, and so forth. I love hiking, camping, going to the temple, hanging out with my friends, playing basketball, and I even like to write on my own free time on occasion. I played the viola in school for nine years and was orchestra president my senior year.

Why I am a Mormon

Whenever I've had doubts as to the truth of this gospel, I always refer back to that feeling I've felt when I've heard and seen the gospel being taught to me. Those feelings I know were from the Holy Ghost, the spirit who bears witness of the truth. During testimony meetings at seminary, trek, youth conference, church, and other activities, the spirit has been undeniably there, testifying of the truth through that little burning of the chest. I know Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father loves all of us with an infinite love we cannot comprehend. They wouldn't ask us to do anything that was contrary to what was right, and what we should do. Working on trying to comprehend their love for me better has encouraged me to follow the words of the scriptures, try their words, and see if they are true, and I can testify that if you read the scriptures, and pray to God to know if these things are true, with a sincere heart and a willingness to change, He will make it manifest unto you that these things are true.

How I live my faith

I've served in the presidency of my quorums through my teenage years. I have attended the temple frequently. As part of being in those presidencies I attended lots and lots of meetings on how to fellowship our members, inactive members, and nonmembers. I have been regular in doing my home teaching assignment, meeting with families in my ward to bring in the spirit and offer help where needed.
