Hi I'm Nathan

I grew up in Salt Lake. I am serving as a missionary in the California, Anaheim Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, I am Nathan. I am the middle child. I have and older and a younger brother. I love camping and hiking. I love to read. I love to play volleyball. I love the Gospel. I am called to serve as a missionary in Anaheim, California. When I return I plan to attend Utah State University.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been blessed to have been born into a family that was very strong in the gospel. My parents always encouraged me to build my own testimony. As a boy, I was abused physically and emotionally. This led to serious and almost crippling anxiety. I found that the most comforting and healing thing in my life was the Gospel. As I grew older that knowledge transferred into a testimony. I am a Mormon because I know this church is true. I am a Mormon because I know that this is the true gospel restored by Joseph Smith. I personally know of the healing and strengthening power of the Atonement. I know it is real, and that Christ suffered for all of us. I am a Mormon because I cannot deny the truthfulness of the Gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to fulfill what the Lord has asked of me. I try to follow the commandments, and the teachings of the prophets. I keep myself worthy to perform my priesthood responsibilities and enter the temple. I prepared myself to be ready to serve a LDS mission, and now I have been called to serve. I attempt to love all those around me, and at every opportunity to share what I believe and be an example of Christ. I read scriptures and pray consistently. I try to always improve my faith and testimony in the Gospel.
