Hi I'm Natalie

I am a student and missionary. I love my family, I love to play the piano and sing, and I love the sun. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have wonderful parents and two older siblings who I love. I have lived in Wisconsin, Massachusetts, Utah, and Idaho. I have attended BYU-Idaho since Fall 2014 and am studying Elementary Education. I'm taking a break from school to serve a full-time 18-month mission in Tampa, Florida starting in April 2016. I love music. I like to play the piano and sing in choirs.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents raised me in the church. I have always loved it and gained happiness from its teachings. My testimony and knowledge of its truth has grown gradually, so I really can't pinpoint a specific experience that told me the church was true. I just have small feelings every so often that remind me of God's love and tell me that what I am doing is right. These feelings come from the Holy Ghost, or Spirit of God. If you want to learn more about the Spirit, some of my favorite scriptures that talk about the Spirit are Moroni 10:4-5 in the Book of Mormon or Galatians 5:22-23 in the Bible.

How I live my faith

I have served as a pianist for the Relief Society, or group of women, in my congregation at BYU-Idaho. I also visit (or try to visit!) two lovely women in my Relief Society each month to check up on them and let them know we love them.
