Hi I'm Natalie

I live in Wisconsin, U.S.A. I am a college student and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love painting, music, running, and going on crazy vacations with my family (camping trips are always more interesting than they're supposed to be, especially with poor planning). Right now, I am going to college as a food science major (because who doesn't love food?). I have a beautiful sister and two brothers that are a joy to be with, and I am proud of my parents and the sacrifices they make for us.

Why I am a Mormon

There is a beautiful purpose to being on this earth, at this time. Nothing can compare to the peace and confidence that knowing of the Savior and His love for us can bring, not to mention the joy of one day returning to be with Him and our Heavenly Father after a life spent trying to become better than I am. I have read the Book of Mormon, and I know it speaks of real people and their experiences in acting with faith. The knowledge that I gain as a member of this church makes me excited to be alive and optimistic about the future, which (as far as I have found) nothing else can compare to. We are loved and have been given everything we need to succeed. We only have to act.

How I live my faith

Every day, I wake up with the intent to start afresh. I don't have to make the same mistakes I made the day before, and because of that I can make a tiny step towards who I want to be. Through experience, I have discovered that prayer and studying the scriptures are a big part of that, as well as learning about and loving those around me. Within church, I get to be the chorister for the main sacrament meeting, leading everyone along through the hymns. Music is powerful to me and makes me feel peace in a way that nothing else does, and so every week I look forward to going back and hearing the singing again.
