Hi I'm Natalie

I grew up in Southern California. I am a full time student studying mathematics. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small suburb just north of Los Angeles. I have one older brother and two awesome parents. My mom and dad raised my brother and I in the Catholic church. Dancing is my passion! I have been dancing ever since I was 8 years old. I was on competition teams as well as my high school's dance team. I am going to college to get my Bachelors in Mathematics. I've always loved and enjoyed math! I am very passionate about astronomy; my favorite thing is looking at the night sky. I also love adventures and everything about the outdoors. I joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in February 2014; it has been the best life decision that I've ever made.

Why I am a Mormon

My whole life I've searched for truth. I've always been very curious about my purpose in life and why things are the way that they are. When I found The Church of Jesus-Christ of Latter-day Saints, all of my questions were answered and I knew that I had found truth. I know that I have a Father in Heaven who loves me more than I can even fathom. I know that He loves you too. This Church has brought me so much joy and so much happiness. I have a testimony that the Church of Jesus-Christ of Latter-day Saints is true. This church is restored. It is the same church Christ intended to establish when he was here on this Earth. I am a Mormon because it is simply the truth.

How I live my faith

I feel so privileged to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The people I have met in the Church have blessed my life immensely. I am grateful for them everyday! I've had the opportunity to serve many different callings in my ward. I am the only member of the Church in my family, so I find it very important to share my beliefs with my family and friends. I have been called to serve a full time mission in Arequipa, Peru. I will be serving from November 2015 to May 2017. I want to serve a mission because I want to share the message of Jesus Christ and all that he has done for us. I can't wait to bring the people of Arequipa the same joy and happiness that the Gospel of Jesus Christ has brought to me.
