Hi I'm Nathan

I grew up in West Virginia and Idaho, I am a graduating senior who loves basketball and learning. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a graduating senior who stays busy in many activities. I have little free time due to my participation in varsity basketball, advanced academics, and family life. I have a variety of hobbies. I love basketball, skiing, camping, boating, napping, eating, and the outdoors. Being outside recharges my batteries and acts as a kind of therapy for me. I have been accepted into college and I am highly anticipating the opportunity to continue my education and learn more. I try to be a good example to my four younger siblings by seeking to obtain a college education and through my demeanor. I realize the importance of education and I am dedicated to it. I also love studying the scriptures and reading the words of modern day prophets. My biggest goal for the future is to be able to have a future family, I am planning now to be able to support one in the future.

Why I am a Mormon

I have gained a testimony of this faith and I cannot deny its truth. The Holy Spirit has testified to me that these things are true. I am a Mormon because I know that I am a member of the only true church on earth and that I can receive the blessings of the temple and guidance from living prophets through my membership. I feel like family when I go to church, when I among others who share my beliefs and love the Lord and each other I feel good. I know that this church is true and I have learned for myself that Joseph Smith saw God and Jesus Christ in the Sacred Grove, and that through Joseph the church was restored to its original glory and order. I am a Mormon because I am a member of the original church as established by Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through all that I do in my life. I seek to follow the example of Christ in all that I do. I try to replicate his example of patience, humility, and His love for all people. I try to see people the way that Christ sees them and I often reach out to people to help when most ordinarily wouldn't. I like to look for the potential in each person, I see a soul that was created by our Heavenly Father that has an opportunity to obtain celestial glory. I try to share the gospel with others to help them receive the blessings that I have enjoyed and love. I am a continuous learner of the gospel. I seek to obtain truth from the scriptures and the words of our living prophets daily, I have come to gain a testimony of the Restoration of His church and of the Atonement. I love the people around me and the Savior and I seek to reflect that in my life.
