Hi I'm Nicholas

Yeah, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I play soccer, and I write and play music. I have 5 brothers and sisters, and my mom and dad are awesome! I like a good game of chess, just to get my mind going. T.V. is a weakness of mine, I'll admit. School is fun, and I enjoy my classes. I like to play basketball, but only if it's for fun. My faith is who I am, and I try to live every moment for my Savior. I love Him, and I know He loves me.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? I didn't truly become a, "Mormon," until I decided to find out what a Mormon really was, and I encourage anyone part of this faith to do the same. When I really understood what the implication of the term Mormon was, I finally realized why I am a Mormon. I am a Mormon because within this church, are the teachings needed for eternal life. As I live according to God's complete gospel, I grow closer to him than I otherwise could. I am a Mormon because I have felt the promptings of the Holy Ghost, assuring me of this truth. I am a Mormon, because I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints contains the fullness of the gospel, and the keys to heaven. I am a Mormon, because my Savior wants me to be.

How I live my faith

I am the priest 1st counselor in my home ward. This simply means that I have a duty to help my quorum members grow closer to Heavenly Father through activities, service, and consant opportunities to interact with other members of our faith. I try to excercise my faith by talking about my beliefs to others. I try to keep my standards, because there is strength in virtue, and because I feel peace when I make choices that bring me closer to Heavenly Father. I try to show kindness to those around me because of what I have been taught. In that way, not only do I know my faith. I also live it.

Who founded Mormonism and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

Nicholas
The Mormon Church is actually called the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Therefore we believe that Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father were the initiators of the restoration of the true gospel on the earth.To accomplish His purposes, the Lord uses us, beings of His creation. Joseph Smith was the tool of our Heavenly Father, and he acted as the conduit to instruction from the Lord for us here on Earth. Through Joseph Smith, God's true church was once again established upon the Earth. Show more Show less

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Nicholas
Many ask why Mormons only care for others of their faith, and neglect others with views different than ours. While we do share the common bond of our religion, and many of our local service projects are centered around those members of the church who are in need, we do not exclusively serve other Mormons. Our faith is rooted in Jesus Christ, and we try to emulate Him as much as our individual character will allow. Jesus Christ did not discriminate based on the ties of Christianity. He served even the lowliest of His fellow brothers and sisters here on Earth with love and patience. In fact, the most perfect act of this Earth's existence, the Atonement, did not discriminate on basis of religion. The Savior experienced the pain, suffering and sins of every person to enter this Earth, and satisfied the inescapable demands of justice so that we would not have to. If the Savior can endure such pain for everyone here on Earth, then we at least, can serve and give to everyone as much as we can, no matter their beliefs or status. Show more Show less
