Hi I'm Natalie

I'm a student. I'm a lover of chocolate milk. I'm a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am studying photography at BYU-I. I am from the Seattle area. I am the second oldest of 5 kids. I have had various nanny jobs throughout my life. I have a special spot in my heart for children. I love being with family and friends. I studied at the Jerusalem Center. It was the most amazing experience. I volunteered in Arica at an orphanage for 5 weeks. As you can see I love to travel and hope to travel more! I love adventures and anything that will bring me to the outdoors. I love living near lakes, mountains, and the ocean. This world is beautiful. Dance party? I'm there. I have been called to serve in the Arizona Scottsdale Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am SO excited to bring others unto Christ!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because it is what brings me happiness. Nothing in this life brings me more joy than when I live the gospel. I cannot imagine my life with out the knowledge of this gospel. The best gifts come through the gospel. I know as we follow His commandments it will bring us peace. I know with all my heart that this is the true church. Even though I was born in the church, I had to find out for myself that it was true. I have felt the Holy Ghost testify to me that this is the true church. I can not deny the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon as I read and pray. I know that we are never alone. Heavenly Father is always there for us and is cheering us on! We are His children. He loves us. He knows us individually. I know when I pray to my Heavenly Father, He listens and guides me. I know we can do all things through the atonement of Jesus Christ. He atoned for MY sins so I can return back to the presence of God. I assure you that the Savior loves you so much that he made it possible for us to change and repent if we make a mistake. I am grateful for temples and how I can become closer the Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ as I attend. For it is through temples that I can be sealed to my family forever. I am so grateful families can be together forever. That is so amazing! I love this church! I am so grateful to be apart of it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example. Christ is the best example there is. I strive to be more Christ-like in all my doings. I try to show kindness, love and selflessness. Being a member of this church, I have so many opportunities to serve. I will be able to serve and love the people of Arizona in ways I didn't even know were possible. I can't wait to share this gospel with others!
