Hi I'm Nathaniel

I'm from Taylorsville Utah, I love to laugh.

About Me

I like to go running in my free time. I love playing sports and games with my friends. Anything from basketball to go fish is fair game! I have played the violin for about eight years and I have enjoyed playing in orchestras in my school and community. I just graduated from high school in the top 8 students in my class, as well as being an AP scholar with distinction. I will be going to school at BYU in the winter 2016 semester. I also love to try new foods.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been going to church for all of my life. I have many pioneer ancestors on both sides of my family. We have been members of the church almost as long as you can be. I was baptized when I was eight, and have been living the gospel principles since then. I really found my testimony when I was about twelve and received the Priesthood. That was when I first finished the Book of Mormon all the way through, and as I prayed about the teachings I found in there, I felt certain that it was the right path for me. I know that the Book of Mormon contains the teachings of prophets called of God. I know that Joseph Smith was also called of God to translate the book, and that he was the first of many modern day prophets. I know that Jesus Christ atoned for my sins, and if I do what he asks and try my best to follow his example, that I can return to be with my father in heaven, as well as find happiness in this life.

How I live my faith

I have served as a leader in many of my age groups throughout the church. I have been the president as well as served as counselors to presidents. I was also a part of my neighborhood's youth committee to plan activities for the teenagers in my community. I was also a part of the student council for the religion classes at my school. I also visit some families in my neighborhood monthly to see how they are doing and bring them a spiritual message. I also go to the families in my neighborhood once a month to collect donations for the church.
