Hi I'm Nathan

I have three sisters, I love chocolate and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm an engineer in the US Coast Guard, and I love cars and motorcycles. I love food, especially chocolate, and I enjoy rock climbing, hiking, and camping. My favorite thing in the world is telling jokes and puns and making people laugh.

Why I am a Mormon

I found myself one day curious to know what would happen when I died. Being a member of the Mormon faith already, I looked there for answers. They told me that if I were faithful to God's commandments, I would have the opportunity to live with God and my family for eternity. "What would happen if I'm not faithful?" I asked. The reply was that I would be happy, for a time. But eventually, I would not be able to progress any further. I would reach the limits of my potential, because I had not lived my life the way God intended. I would see my family continue to progress, and I would not be in their presence. I love my family more than anything else in this world, and I will do anything to live with them in happiness for eternity. After deep reflection and thought about the things I had learned, I felt an undeniable feeling of peace and love. I knew those things were true. I knew that God's way was the right way and that I had to follow His commandments in order to receive the blessings of eternity that await me. His Spirit filled me with my first feelings of true joy, and now I want to feel that joy as often as I possibly can.

How I live my faith

I am a Sunday school teacher at my church. It's one of the most rewarding things to me. I take about an hour or two to study a lesson plan about the gospel, then I bring in what I learned and teach others. Feeling the good feelings I get when I help others realize that true joy can be found in the gospel is priceless. I would teach forever if I had the chance. I also love to do service. It feels so good to know that my blessings of health and support can benefit others. All I need to do is take some time out of my day to shovel snow or to mow someone's yard or help them move homes. I love working to bring others happiness.
