Hi I'm Nick

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a business student who is stoked to get out in the real world. Currently I am studying Marketing and am really interested in it. I married my gorgeous wife about 18 months ago, and am happier than I ever thought I could be. I can attribute that happiness in my marriage to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the teachings of the Latter-day Saint Church.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are very active in the Mormon Church and I was raised going to church every week. Finally, I knew I had to make a decision for myself. So I thought hard about it, but most importantly, I prayed and read the Book of Mormon. I knew that if I found out that the Book of Mormon was true, then the Church had to be true as well.

How I live my faith

At church, my wife and I teach the class of 14 and 15 year olds. This opportunity is awesome because these kids know so much already and they teach me a lot. Right now I go to school full time, work part time, AND have an internship. Needless to say, time is a precious commodity for me. I have found that on the days I make time for the stuff that's really important- like God and my wife, that I get more done and things just seem to go better.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Nick
I served a two year LDS Mission for the Church in Zimbabwe, Africa. I have witnessed first hand that the Church does not just help Mormons. In Zimbabwe, gardens are very important because people have very little money to buy food so instead they grow it. I remember a partially crippled man who came to a Church-owned garden. Because of his handicap he couldn't work or feed his small children and was asking for some left over crops. The man was given some produce and in addition, his very own plot. The man worked tirelessly everyday and by the end of the season had a very impressive harvest. This man was not a Mormon, but he was someone in need. Mormons believe that everyone on this earth is a child of God, and we are reminded of the Savior's counsel in Matthew, "When ye have done it unto one of the least of these, my brethren, ye have done it unto me."
