Hi I'm Nathan

I am a missionary. I'm a competitive ballroom dancer. I love life and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, I am 18 years old, love hanging out with my family, and having fun! Growing up I have played all kinds of sports but, for most of my childhood I have ballroom danced. I soon will be serving a mission for the church to tell people what i know and believe. I will be serving in the Monrovia, Liberia mission for a period of two years, leaving behind my family, friends, putting my education and hobbies on hold, and going to a very new, different place. I couldn't be more excited!! I love to travel, experience new cultures and meet new people. I love to camp, hike and enjoy pretty much anything outdoors. I love being active and enjoying life!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy!! The teachings, doctrines, and feelings of this church lift my spirit every day. I am a Mormon because it helps me to be better each day and gives purpose to my life. Without the Gospel of Jesus Christ I would be going through this world with no direction or course. The Church gives me the basic teachings I need to be stable and confident in this life. I am a Mormon because it gives me comfort in times of discouragement. I can rely on my Savior Jesus Christ and His Atonement to give me strength and guidance in these times. I do not know how else I could live this life without the gospel of Jesus Christ. It will forever be a part of my life.

How I live my faith

One of the main ways I have tried to show my faith and participate in my ward is by service to others. I have been a leader over many of my fellow classmates and have had the opportunity to serve and teach them. I have served elderly people in my ward and community. I have also been a leader at church camps and activities and helped plan and carry out these events.
