Hi I'm Nicole

I am serving a mission for 18 months for The Church. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Californian who has never been surfing. I spent most of my time in school singing, acting and doing math. I am attending University and studying physics. I love spending time with my family and friends. I hope one day I will figure out what I want to be when I grow up.

Why I am a Mormon

I was very lucky to have parents who taught me the gospel of Jesus Christ as a child. However, since I am a scientist, I had to try it out on my own. When I was in my teens, I was challenged to read the entire Book of Mormon before a specific date. Since I am a bit of a procrastinator, I did not start reading until a week before the deadline. Thankfully, it was summer vacation and I was able to finnish in time. During this intense week, I remember sitting on the floor in our family room reading and feeling this incredible feeling of peace and joy. The best way I can describe it is that light was poured into me. I knew it was true. Throughout my life, I have tested the waters. I wasn't always doing the things I was supposed to be doing. And during those times, my life was a little off. I felt like something was missing. When I started to do the things I was supposed to be doing, everything became alright. It wasn't that any of my problems or challenges changed, but I changed. I became whole and had the strength to face the problems and challenges in my life. Life is so much better as a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am currently a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for about 18 months. I get to share with people everyday the way that the Gospel of Jesus Christ have changed my life. I wish for everyone to have the same peace, joy and comfort from knowing God's plan for each of us. I love being a missionary.
