Hi I'm Natalie

I have lived in Idaho, in the same house, my whole life. I love this gospel with all my soul, and always have. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints my whole life. I'm preparing to serve a mission and am so exited to serve my Heavenly Father for the next 18 months! I love music and art with all my heart, especially when it testifies of the truthfulness of the gospel. I've participated in school bands since 6th grade all the way through high school. I also am very passionate about keeping a daily journal. I believe it helps me see all the good that can happen when I keep a record and relive the events of the day every night, and when I made mistakes I can understand them and work hard to make sure I can live my life so I don't make that mistake again. I also believe it's important to keep a journal for the purpose of having your posterity read it once you have passed on. So you can leave behind some knowledge to your posterity and maybe when they are having a bad day, they can read your journal and feel comfort, and know that they aren't the only one who has ever had a hard time.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon for a few reasons, the biggest one probably being, I was born and raised a Mormon. Because I was so blessed to have always known of this gospel, each year I grow in knowledge of the gospel and its truthfulness. Each day I am reminded how much I love this gospel, and how blessed I am to have been born into it! I am constantly reminded of how much my Father in Heaven loves me, and I am so thankful for that! But being born into this gospel doesn't mean I am forced to stay. No matter what, you are never forced to live this gospel! I keep living this gospel because I believe with all my soul and being that it is the true and restored gospel on this earth, and I look forward to serving The Lord even more in the future. I love being a Mormon with all my heart! It's so much of who I am that without it I don't know who I would be! This gospel has all the answers and I am so grateful that I can feel my Savior's love every day in everything I do! He is always watching over us, rooting for us, hoping we see the right path that he has laid out for us. Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love us so much, and with their love and help we can accomplish great things!

How I live my faith

The best way I have lived my faith has been to live my life to the fullest, make sure that everything I do will make my Heavenly Father happy. No, i'm not perfect, I struggle with it every day. I have to constantly remind myself to keep my faith in mind, and make the right choice. I have to make a very conscious effort to live every day to the fullest! Try to be kind to everyone, you never know what that person is going through, the simplest bit of kindness can go a long way! In the church I have been called to being in the presidency in my class's youth group, a teacher to the 6-7 year old kids teaching them the basics of the gospel and making sure they understand what this gospel is about, even serving the members and watching their children of about 18 months to 2 years old so they can go to their own meetings without feeling the need to entertain their children and just focus on the spirit of the meeting they're in. Now I am preparing to serve a mission for the next 18 months, to bring others to this wonderful gospel and help them see the truthfulness of this gospel.
