Hi I'm Natalie Latham

I grew up in Northern California. I love spending time with my family and friends. I love to travel. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am from Northern California and am about to serve a full time mission in Quezon City Philippines. I got my call while I was attending my first semester of college at BYU-Idaho planning to get my degree in nursing. I was raised in an amazing family, with loving, caring, and hard working parents, and 3 sisters who have made life fun and crazy. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and I love this gospel. It has made me who I am today.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in this church, but it wasn't till I asked for myself in prayer to my Heavenly Father, that I received the confirmation that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was the true church established on the earth today. Yes, there have been times when I have doubted or questioned things, and that is normal, but my faith has always overpowered those doubts. This gospel focuses on our faith in a Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ who loves each and every one of us unconditionally. I have felt of his unconditional love. It also focuses on families, and that they can be eternal, and not just 'till death do we part'. What an amazing promise that is that we all have the opportunity to receive. This gospel provides the answers to where did I come from? Why am I here? Where am I going? and those answers give me peace and comfort. I love this gospel and I know it to be true. I would not be leaving my family, friends, and education for 18 months to teach the people in the Philippines this gospel if I didn't know, without a doubt, that this church is the Christ's church on the earth today.

How I live my faith

I was raised in this church and ever since I was little I have been taught about service. This church is a church of service, both in church callings and throughout the community. I have been a leader in young womens, which is for all women ages 12-18, a ward chorister, and an activity day's leader who works with girls ages 8-11. I love being a leader and an example to all those around me and my callings have really focused around that.
