Hi I'm Natalie

I love to run, play the piano, and be outside. I love my family. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a daughter, sister, and aunt. I have seven crazy siblings, two awesome brothers-in-law, one beautiful sister-in-law, nine fun nieces and nephews, and two amazing parents. I love spending time with my family. I love to hike, camp, do sports, and just play with them. I run cross country and I love it. Running is an awesome way to relax and feel good. I also love to play the piano and sing. Music is a very important part of my life and my family's. I love singing around the piano with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me so much. I know that he has a very specific plan for me and if I follow and obey Him, then He will help, lead, guide, and comfort me. I know that He sent me and everyone else on this beautiful earth to learn about Him and follow Him so that we can one day return to live with Him. For my whole life, I have had parents, leaders, and teachers who have taught me and helped me strengthen and build my testimony to where it is today. They have taught me that I can repent of the sins that I have made and that if I sincerely repent, then Jesus Christ will forgive me. I know that we can repent and be forgiven because our loving Savior, Jesus Christ, willingly suffered for ALL of our sins, sorrows, and pains. I know that He loves me and everyone so much. Knowing this gives me comfort and peace and gives me the desire to do what's right so that I can live with Jesus Christ, Heavenly Father, and my family for eternity. I am so grateful for temples and I know that they really are the House of the Lord. I am so grateful that my parents were sealed in the temple so that we can have an eternal family and I am so excited for when I can be sealed in the temple to my spouse. I am so grateful that I made the decision to be baptized when I was eight. I know that we need to be baptized in order to return to the Celestial Kingdom. I love the Book of Mormon and I know that through Christ, Joseph Smith translated it and restored the church to the earth. I know that he is a true prophet of God. I know that President Thomas S. Monson is the living prophet on the earth today. He receives revelation for the entire church. I know the church is true and I am so blessed to be a member. I say this in Jesus Christ's name. Amen

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reaching out to others and helping them feel loved. I smile and share my testimony through my actions. I have the opportunity to play the organ during Sacrament meeting which helps me bear my testimony and feel the Spirit. I read my scriptures by myself and with my family. I always strive to live by the things I learn and the things that I am taught. I pray to my Heavenly Father and I know that He is there and that He listens.
