Hi I'm Natalie Hawes

I grew up in Eugene, I was homeschooled, played sports, danced, wrote, and loved everything the world had to offer!

About Me

I'm currently serving as a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and I love my God and serving Him every day! My interests include a kind of hip-hop dancing called popping, playing basketball and tennis, going outdoors and hiking or camping, writing stories or poetry, and drawing. I love the beautiful things this world has to offer and going out and finding new adventures to live every day!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because this gospel has enriched and nourished my life in ways I never thought possible when I was younger. I was born into a family of Mormons and natural grew up with it around me. It's amazing to me to look back on my life and see how my testimony developed and strengthened over the years. Prayer and reading scriptures and going to church were paramount in my personal development. Through all these things and the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I have come to know of God's love for me and His children. Through this church, I get to feel that love surround me in my times of need and throughout my life. And I suppose that's why I'm a Mormon. I love feeling that love, and sharing it with everyone I can!

How I live my faith

I've served in the ward by organizing activities for small groups of young adults, teaching on sundays, and now by being a missionary of the Lord!
