Hi I'm Nichole

I'll always be a kid at heart, I love to be adventurous and try new things. I love music and art and everything, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love life. There's always something new to learn or to try! And I'm always up for a good adventure! I'm attending college at BYU Idaho in Rexburg. I'm an Art major. I love to design and create things, I like to be able to use my hands and get them dirty. I love being able to find different ways to see things. There's just so much to try! I love music as well. I play the guitar and sing, and I'm always learning more, I'm trying to teach myself the piano, violin, and ukulele and whatever else I can get my hands on! And it's a really slow process but that's ok. I love writing music. Sometimes I'm too adventurous for my own good, and I tend to be known for the accidents I have doing crazy things. I really do love life and want to experience all it has to offer! I love my family and my friends! I love being with people and I love being a friend just as much as having them and I'd say I'm pretty blessed when it comes to the people in my life. Life is good.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. My parents raised me in the church. I feel really blessed and kinda spoiled, because I never questioned, ever, I just always have known that it is true. But I do remember when I was a teenager, I spent a lot of years not sure at all about who I was, and not sure where to look to find out who I was and I just really didn't know myself or my Savior very well. I didn't really know my testimony, even though it was ALWAYS there and I always KNEW, and didn't really see how much a part of me the gospel was or could be, or how much happier I could be if I just let it be, but I was so disconnected. I always had a testimony, I always knew, but didn't know myself enough to recognize it. I always did the things that I knew were right, I stood firm, but I was in a weird place. When I was 17 I heard a talk, and the only thing I really remember was his main message "stop being a bum" which was exactly what I was doing. I was being a bum. I spent too much time letting myself squish myself, and missing all the best parts. That day my life changed, or better yet, I decided to change. To stop not knowing myself and my Savior, because it was easier that I thought. Stop raining on my own parade all the time and step up to see the things in myself that had always been there, and realizing that in getting to know the Savior, and becoming like him, I found myself in Him. Haha I hope that wasn't too hard to understand.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by always doing the best I can, in everything that I do. And I can't even describe the happiness that comes from with trying to be my best self. It can be hard sometimes, but it brings so much joy when I can be my best. I love to serve, to do things for people to show them that they are loved, and in serving, I know that I'm loved as well. For the past few months I've been a teacher at church, being able to share my testimony with the people that are there. I usually end up learning more for myself though in those moments. I live my faith by remembering who I am, and always remembering my Savior and Heavenly Father, and doing my best knowing that they both always love me more than I can understand. I love helping others know that they are loved, and so I try to be my best to love people, and I try to love them how I know that my Savior loves them and me. It certainly does help me to see them in a different way, in a better way. I can still be so much better in so many ways, but I won't stop giving it my best.
