Hi I'm Nathan

I have lived in Kaysville Utah my whole life. I've loved to serve others my entire life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have always loved being diverse in my hobbies and am always looking to try something new. I have had the opportunity to play baseball, soccer, lacrosse, football, and varsity track and basketball at my high school. I love to bike, hike, and be in the beauty of nature. I also love music, I have been blessed with the ability to learn how to play the piano, clarinet, saxophone, and bagpipes and really enjoy pursuing these talents. I am a student currently in high school but have been accepted to BYU and will serve a full time mission in the Barbados Bridgetown mission before attending college. Of the most influential experiences of my life service in the gospel has been the greatest. I have loved having callings as quorum presidents, 1st counsellor to the bishop, and various important stake events such as trek. For 5 years of my life I cared for and served a rather unhappy and elderly widow in my ward that was not a member. I came to be her closest and most trusted friend and learned so much about charity, longsuffering, and humility. I find that it is when one is looking to the needs of others and seeking to influence individuals by serving them in righteousness that the power of God is made manifest by his grace and love.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always had the gospel in my life and have been extremely blessed by it. Although I have always recognized the truth of the gospel and its power and light in my life I have not always diligently sought after knowledge pertaining to the gospel and upheld the commandments and covenants I have made with God. It has been through trials and tribulations in my life that at times made me feel that all is lost and that the redemptive power of our savior was not enough for me. This is false. I know that God's grace is sufficient for all, through the atonement of Jesus Christ the way has been given to us that we may live forever in God's presence in eternal happiness if we but will allow his grace not only to forgive but to change us to be like him. I am a Mormon because I have felt this redemptive power of my life not only to become cleansed from my mistakes but also to be changed by it and to receive a greater fullness of joy and gladness because of the great plan that our Father has provided. I am a Mormon because I have experienced both the light and the dark, I have experienced life without upholding the virtues and commandments of God and with doing so. I know that the only way I can personally receive the greatest amount of happiness in this life and in the life to come is through this everlasting gospel.

How I live my faith

I always seek to uphold the values desirable for good citizens of the community by serving others and doing all I can to keep the statutes and honors recognized therein. Among community service my greatest achievement is receiving the rank of an Eagle Scout through much service through my years as a scout and my Eagle Project of clearing biking trails to make them safe and enjoyable for hundreds that use them throughout the community. The most important service I can provide is through the church as a home teacher, member of quorum presidencies, and other various callings to plan and execute uplifting camps.
