Hi I'm Natasha

Knowing where I came from, why I am here and where I am going gives me joy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am living the life I aspired to have as a young woman. My husband and I have 5 young children who try our patience, but give us an incredible amount of happiness. I stay home to care for our children and am so happy to have that privilege. Even though there are temper tantrums there are sweet hugs and kisses that make it all worth it! There really is no place like home.

Why I am a Mormon

I know I am a daughter of a loving Heavenly Father who knows me and is aware of my needs. I know Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer and through His atonement I can be forgiven of my sins that I may return to live with God again. I know that my family can be together forever as we follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. I know that we have a prophet and apostles on the earth today to guide us and teach us the will of God. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ it contains additional truths that can help us to become more like our Savior. I know my happiness is dependent upon my obedience to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This is my testimony and why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving each day to follow the example of my Savior in all I say and do. I teach my children the stories of Jesus so they will also know how to follow Him. As much as I would like to be perfect, I know that will not happen in this life, but I can seek forgiveness and strive for perfection and Jesus Christ will compensate for my weaknesses. I look forward to each Sunday when I go with my family to church, partake of the Sacrament and glean inspiration and direction from others. I am able to attend a meeting where the women in the church gather and learn together. I always learn new insights and am rejuvenated in spirit and mind. I have two responsibilities in my church. One to visit other women on a monthly basis and share a spiritual message with them as well as give help when they are in need. My second responsibility is to let women in our congregation know of the needs of others that they can help to fill meals, home help, visits, etc..

To what do you attribute the growth of the Church?

I think that for many people who investigate and consequently join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, it is much like discovering missing pieces to a puzzle. Upon learning and understanding our faith the puzzle is complete. The answers to many of life's questions are found within the teachings and doctrine of the Church. Show more Show less
