Hi I'm Natalie

I am 19 years old. I've been Called to be a missionary in Curitiba,Brazil. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am live in Rigby, Idaho, but before that I lived in Utah, Colorado, and California. I am 19 years old and I have just graduated high school this year. I am in a big family of six kids; I have a sister, Marlie, who is married with three amazing kids, that I love more then anything in the world. My sister Jamie is married and has one kid as well. Katie, my other sister just got married too. I also have two brothers, Bryson and Trevor. My family is super important to me, I spend pretty much all my time with them because I'm too shy to make friends. I love sports, even though I'm not very good at them. One of my favorite things to do is watch or play football, I absolutely love the Denver Broncos. I love music, I listen to it constantly and I am also learning to play piano. I am just about to leave on my mission to Curitiba Brazil and I couldn't be more excited.

Why I am a Mormon

I truly believe in the goodness of God and his gospel. I have seen my family blessed by my parents' faith and obedience. I have seen how his love can change lives and hearts. It hasn't always been easy for me, I have struggled with my testimony, but I have always come back to the truth, that this gospel is full of goodness and hope and that this church is full of people sincerely striving to better themselves and the world. Through God and his son Jesus Christ I truly believe we can become better; I have always been happier, healthier, and stronger when I follow my Heavenly Father. I know this gospel is true, our Heavenly Father is a God of goodness, and charity, and love, and his church is a place where even imperfect, sometimes ungrateful people like me can find hope and acceptance.

How I live my faith

I am a lifelong member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I go to church every week and have been very involved in my wards, serving as a leader to the young women, and now a primary teacher where I teach the four year olds in our ward. I even get to serve in the temple for a couple weeks before my mission.
