Hi I'm Nathan

I'm a small-town boy living in the city, I love to serve and play with my nephews and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from a small town in the hills of Utah. I love animals and all the things a small town adds to your life, but I also like being able to drive five minutes to a Walmart. I love to run, hike, bike, fish, camp, play with fire, and all things boy, but I also have a soft side. I love to play with kids, especially my nephews. One of the many things I love doing is flying radio control planes and I love doing this even more with my family. My family brings more joy into my life than I can even explain. If it wasn't for my family and knowing that I could be with them forever, even after I die, I don't know where I would be in life.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of Christ's church since I was eight. I was raised in His church and I am thankful for this, but I wouldn't say I experienced conversion until I was much older.  For many years I struggled to have any confidence in myself. I felt that what I did was never enough I would never be good enough. I looked at the wrong choices I had made in my life and I thought I would never be able to live up to my potential. I became very depressed and reserved. A few years ago I decided that something needed to change in my life. Though I have been a member of Christ's church all my life, I had never comprehended what being a member truely meant. I decided to put forth the extra effort to read the Book of Mormon everyday and to pray morning and night. Through diligance in doing these things I came to an understanding of the Atonement of Jesus Christ and what that means to all of us. I came to know what baptism by the proper priesthood authority of God truely meant. I felt peace in my heart and I knew that I was a child of God, that Christ truely did atone for my sins and that I could be cleansed from all of my sins. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints truely is Christ's one and only church here upon the earth. I am a member of His church because I know that this is the one and only way that I will be able to obtain perfect happiness. 

How I live my faith

 Currently I am serving as a missionary. You know those crazy boys in white shirts and ties always riding their bikes? Yup, I'm one of 'em. I love being a missionary. I bring others unto Christ and dispite how hard it is to give up my life for two years it is worth the time, effort, pains and sorrows to see even one person obtain happiness through baptism. There is no greater thing I could be doing with my life at this time than serving my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

What is the priesthood?

Nathan
 The priesthood is the authority given to men from God to act in His name. Essentially God is allowing us, his children, to use His power. That same power that was used to create the universe and all things in it we too, as worthy males, can hold. Christ healed the sick, cast out devils and walked on water by using the priesthood.
