Hi I'm Nicole

I love God, Jesus Christ, family, friends, nature, creativity, good food, checklists, simplicity, and being a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Utah. I've been living in the beautiful state of Oregon for the past couple of years, and I love it. I believe that you see what you choose to focus on, so I choose to see the good in life. Being an auntie is one of my very favorite things. I love love love my little nieces and nephews. I recently started doing family history, and one of my favorite things is finding stories from the lives of my ancestors. They inspire me to live a good life, serve others, and be my best self. They also help me appreciate where I come from and recognize that life is not about me, but is about helping and loving others. I have true inner peace and happiness in my life, even in times of trial, because I make a consistent effort to build my life on a sure foundation, which is Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. My family tree goes back to the beginning of the restoration - when Joseph Smith restored the Church of Jesus Christ back to the Earth. So you could say it's in my blood. But I'm an active, faithful member of the Church because I have read and studied the Book of Mormon (along with the Bible and other scriptures). I have put the principles and doctrines into practice and seen the results of doing so in my life. I have prayed and fasted and received answers to questions that I have not understood. I am a Mormon because I know the Church is true. It is led by Jesus Christ, through a living prophet on the earth today. It is the best way for me to live. It is the path of happiness and joy in this life. It is the way back home to our Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

My motto: "Never let a problem to be solved become more important than a person to be loved." - Thomas S. Monson
