Hi I'm Nikki

I am from Canada. I joined the LDS church when I was 19.

About Me

I am a mother of 2 boys and am also a birthmother to a beautiful girl that I placed for adoption through LDS Family Services. I like to make cards and scrapbook. I enjoy reading, listening to music and watching movies. I love to spend time with my husband, my children and our families.

Why I am a Mormon

I found the church through a friend who was being baptized when I was single and pregnant. I'd been looking for a way to devote my life to God and turn things around. The peace I felt the first time I ever attended the LDS church was confirmation enough for me. Very quickly I grew stronger and stronger in my faith. Through the 5 years that I have been a member of the LDS church, I have been given many signs from Heavenly Father that I made the right choice in joining this church through answered prayers and blessings that I didn't even think to ask for. I truly know from prayers that I have a Heavenly Father and Savior who love me.

How I live my faith

I am the Activity Days leader in my ward, which means I organize 2 activities per month for the girls ages 8-11. I am also the Regional Birth Parent Training Secretary and help to keep track of stats for volunteer hours of people who help birth mothers across Canada. In the past I have also taught classes in church on Sunday for children and also have helped to meet the needs of expectant mothers in my ward. Once per month I go and visit ladies from my ward and try to give them help when it is needed.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

No. Young adult men are strongly encouraged to serve a 2 year mission, but it is not a requirement for church membership. Single women of the age 21 or older as well as couples may also serve missions for the church if they wish. Show more Show less
