Hi I'm Natalie

I've moved around a lot but consider Michigan my home. I'm a college student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the youngest of five kids and I have the best older siblings in the world. I've lived in Arizona, Connecticut, Michigan, and most recently, Utah. Moving around was fun, for the most part. I definitely learned to love my family and make new friends. I'm currently serving as a full time missionary in the Barbados Bridgetown Mission french speaking. I serve on the island of Guadeloupe and I'm in love with the French Caribbean culture! I love to travel and I can't wait to see more of this beautiful world. I love everything Harry Potter, I love watching movies with friends, I am always trying to find a reason to go to Disneyland and if I see a dog, I will pet it.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I love my family. Don't get me wrong, I get just as annoyed at my sibling and parents as any other 18-year-old girl, but I love them to death. Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has taught me that I can be with them forever through the Atonement and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. I know that through Him, we can all be reunited after this life. I'm a Mormon because heaven wouldn't be heaven without each and every one of my family members there with me. I know that Christ suffered in the Garden of Gethsemane for all of us--including me, His little sister--so that we could live with Him again.

How I live my faith

I am the service coordinator for my college congregation and I love it. Once a month, I get to plan a project to serve others in our community in one way or another. I have always loved brightening someone else's day, and finding an outlet for that in this church is my favorite way to live my faith. I have recently decided to serve a mission for our church and it is the most amazing feeling knowing that in just a short time, I will be sharing the good news of the gospel.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and His sacrifice for mankind. It is a record of the people living in the Americas before, during, and after Christ's ministry in the old world. Jesus Christ appeared to this people after His Resurrection and taught them His gospel. The Book of Mormon testifies hand in hand with the Bible of Christ and His love for each and every one of us.
