Hi I'm Nichol
I'm a Mormon. I am a wife, mom and now a student. I love my life!
I have been married now for 14 years. We have 3 boys. Our oldest is severely autistic and requires constant watch and help. I homeschool the other 2 and love being with them. I love quilting, reading, camping and going on vacations. It's good to get away. I love my family and friends very much. I also do freelance writing.
I'm a Mormon because I have prayed about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and I know it to be true. I have read the Book of Mormon, prayed about it and know that it is the word of God. I am so grateful for continued revelation from God today. I know that Joseph Smith was inspired by God to translate the Book of Mormon. I served a mission when I was 21 years old where I had the opportunity to share the Gospel message with the wonderful Italian people. I have had so many experiences where the Holy Spirit has testified that what I was teaching is true. I cannot deny what I felt and what I know to be true. My life would be so uncertain and depressing without this knowledge. Knowing that there is life after death and that we will be together as a family forever is so wonderful. My son that is handicap will be made whole when Jesus Christ returns and I am so excited for that day. If I didn't have the knowledge that I do, it would be hard to go on. I believe that my son has been sent to help our family be more Christ like, through service, compassion and understanding. It's not easy, but this understanding makes it doable.
I love my calling as a visiting teacher and coordinator. I sit with my oldest son during church to help the teachers out. I love attending church every week, the spirit there is so refreshing and it helps me get through my week. We have a gentleman in our ward that helps me with our autistic boy. He sits with him the last hour. This is so wonderful because I am able to attend my class uninterupted. It is really a huge blessing for me. I try to be a good example to my children. We read our scriptures daily and it makes it easy to have discussions about the lessons inside. The Holy Scriptures are there for us today. They help us get through the challenges of this life. I pray often to help me. I'm so grateful for prayer, it has been a strength for me in my life.
