Hi I'm Nikki

I am married and have 4 kids. I love my life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Southern California. When I was 18, I moved to Provo, UT to attend college. After earning a bachelors degree and getting married, my husband and I moved to the Midwest. Here, we are raising 4 adorable children. I feel blessed to get to stay home and take care of them every day. I enjoy cooking, cleaning, reading, and laughing with my kids. Being at home is my favorite place in the world and as life gets busier, I treasure the moments we have together as a family. 

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a Mormon family. I have so many happy childhood memories and there was a lot of safety in the things I was taught at church and at home. Upon, leaving home and setting out on my own, there was every opportunity to deviate from the lifestyle I was raised in and make different choices for myself. It didn't take long to learn, that living the gospel principles I was taught as a child, made me happy. I feel safe and I feel direction in my life. To think that by giving up the standards I live, could somehow provide more freedom, would be a huge mistake! I find great freedom and peace by living righteously. I want that same life for my children. I am trying to teach them the very same principles that I was taught. Ultimately, they will have their own choices to make. I hope that one day, they will learn the lessons I have learned and will choose to gain a firm conviction of the gospel. The greatest thing I can ever teach them the greatest thing I could ever accomplish and my greatest wish is that my children will gain their own testimonies for themselves. Jesus Christ is my Savior and above all the things said or written of Him, the most important thing to me, is that He lives and that He loves me.  

How I live my faith

 I am in charge of organizing service for the women in our ward congregation. As a ward family, we care for and watch over one another. My responsibilities range from organizing volunteers to help with meals, child care, transportation, visits, and anything else that is needed. I originally thought I would be the one always volunteering. But I have been so blessed to see others, often strangers, step up and take the lead in ministering to those in need. It has been incredible to see these acts of love and selfless service. It has truly blessed my life and taught me about unconditional love.
