Hi I'm Nycole.

I am a Mormon, and I am one lucky lady!

About Me

Hi! My name is Nycole. I am 24, married, and have a beautiful baby girl. I am currently working through a Nursing Degree, and I am also a reservist in the US Army. I love to play sports, including basketball and soccer, and I enjoy reading, movies and spending time with family. I love to be outdoors, and I love to travel and find adventures!

Why I am a Mormon

I love what this gospel of Jesus Christ has done for me as a person. I feel true happiness in my life every single day- not a "payday Friday" kind of happiness, but a real, deep and true happiness that I have never experienced outside of this church. I have spent a time in my life away from this gospel and its principles, and the vast contrast of satisfaction with life was tremendous. I live a happier, healthier life because of this gospel. Because I have been a valiant (but very far from perfect :) ) member of this church, I have been able to be sealed for time and eternity to my husband and children. What a blessing it is to know that I will be with my family in the eternities. Because of the teachings of this church, I know exactly who I am, why I am on this earth, and what will become of me once I leave this earth. It gives me a hope and a purpose to keep going, when life gets hard. In my most difficult moments, I always have a companion in my Savior, who knows and loves me better than anyone else. I love being a member of this church, and cannot imagine life without it.

How I live my faith

I love working with the youth at our local church! They allow me to feel like a teenager again, but I also get to be a good influence on them. I also enjoy taking some time each month to visit with other women at our church. I find it refreshing to get to know other women, and I feed off of their experience as women and mothers. My husband and I love to attend activities at our church- we always have such a great time!

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Nycole.
It's simple! Read the Book of Mormon and pray about it. I guarantee that if you do this with a sincere heart, you will know for yourself if it is true! Show more Show less

What is done with the tithing that Mormons pay?

Nycole.
It is used to keep our church running. Building churches/temples, our church welfare program and individual church budgets get a large portion of the funds. Our church leadership and clergy do not get paid anything for their many hours of service to the church, so the tithing funds get put back in to our church 100%. I love the blessings I get from paying tithing! Show more Show less

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

Nycole.
We are not perfect beings by any means, but our Heavenly Father is. In order to return to His presence after we die, it would be necessary for us to be perfect to dwell with Him. Our Savior provided the ultimate sacrifice by dying for our sins. Through him, we can become perfected and dwell with Him and our Heavenly Father for eternity! What a blessing! Show more Show less
