Hi I'm Nicholas

I'm from Pahrump. The middle of no where. I love sports, Biology, and learning how things work. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Right now I am serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in The Atlanta Georgia Mission. I love sports, and have played Football, Basketball, Baseball, and ran Track hurdles, long distance in school. I played soccer when I was younger and with my Brother-in-Law before my mission. I love competing in Triathlons and hope to start that up after the mission. I enjoy many other sports. I plan to go to BYU Provo after my mission. I think I want to go into the field of Biology but we shall see. I love my family very very much! Life wouldn't mean anything without them. I am so grateful for my Family!!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that I have a Father in Heaven who loves me. He helps me and has guided me through out my life. He has always guided his children. Growing up, I always questioned his presence. I did much soul searching, looking, reading and studing. I went with my friends to their churches. I love science, and have searched and learned the worlds point of view on life. How it came to be, and how it works. Though all my searching though... I could never find the answer to one single question. WHY? This brought me back to The Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter~Day Saints. In The Book Of Mormon Another Testament Of Jesus Christ, In the last book (Moroni 10:4-5) I understood the promise left there by Moroni. I prayed to my Father in Heaven, asking the question that troubled me. I recieved an answer to my prays and this is what I know to be true. I know we have a prophet on the earth today who helps us and guides us. I am so thankful to have the guidance of a prophet in my life. By applying his teachings into my daily life I have seen how to become a better person, and accomplish the goals I have set for myself. It has been such a blessing in my life. That Prophet teaches us of Jesus Christ! Though Jesus' teaching and appling them to my life... I have been blessed. I know that The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Later~Day Saints is the lords true living church on the earth to day. I invite you to learn of these thing yourself. You have nothing to lose And everything to gain!

How I live my faith

 I believe that the best way to show your faith is to serve others. As I'm serving my mission and as I serve others and try to help them better there lives I'm learning and realizing how i want to live my life. We all make mistakes, but if we repent and strive to model our lives like the Savior lived his life we can reach our full potential. I live my life with faith in Jesus Christ, trusting in him by living the church standards. I know as I do my part in doing my best I will have the life I want to have.    

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Nicholas
No, We go on missions because we have come to believe the Church and all its teachings to be true. The gospel is important to us and is a large part of our lives and we have a desire to share it. In the scriptures Christ often instructs us to follow Him and to feed His sheep. We go out to share the gospel to give others the opportunity to hear and accept His teachings, to bring them closer to Christ, to serve others, and to share with them the Plan of Happiness and how the gospel can affect them and their families.
