Hi I'm Nathan Scott

I'm from Utah, I study Music Therapy and, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student in college right now. I was a vocal performance major and now I study music therapy and it's s blast! You can tell that I LOVE to sing and perform. I also love to play basketball and tennis with anyone willing. I served a mission for the LDS church in México, Aguascalientes which could be compared to a humanitarian service project.

Why I am a Mormon

To be completely honest, I do owe much of my initial conversion to being a Mormon to my incredible parents who allowed me to lean on their testimonies until I had gained one of my own. It's not an instantaneous conversion or knowledge which I received but something I earned and learned little by little. There are some moments in my life however that are too powerful for me to deny. I recall a moment on my mission as a young 18 year old struggling to learn Spanish as well as how I would teach this gospel to those people. I had knelt down before I went to bed to pray and I remember saying to my Heavenly Father, "Father, You and I know that I don't know all things or even a lot of things. But, I do know that You love me." At the very instant I said the word, "Love" I choked up. Tears ran freely down my face and one of the most powerful feelings I have ever felt still to this day came over me. I felt like someone had his warm arms wrapped completely around me. I know this gospel is true. I can't deny that. That's why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I had the amazing opportunity to serve a mission for this church when I was 18 years old in the beautiful country of México.I dedicated two years of my life to preach this gospel to those wonderful people and I loved it. You could maybe compare this to a humanitarian or service project that many selfless people do around the world. I don't mean to brag but I do say that I can relate with those with similar experience that there is a special feeling that you receive when you are in the service of others. I LOVE with all my heart the people of México and hold dear to me those whom I came to know on a personal level. Now I am member of my campus ward at the college I attend. I serve in that ward with a calling I was extended. I serve as a temple and family history consultant. I teach other ward members the importance of family history work and show them how to use the resources that the church provides to this truly awesome work.
