Hi I'm Nicky

I'm a mother, wife, daughter, and sister. I like to teach, but not in a classroom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I hate that question: What can you tell us about you? Well- I'm a mom. I have two of the most loving kids a woman could ever ask for. I wish every moment of the day I was a stay at home mom, but can't make that a career choice right now. Instead I work for Juvenile Corrections and teach the local delinquents. I'm in my late 20's and not sure what to think about becoming 30. I have dreams of someday owning my own store where I can sit around all day making pretty things. I have a supportive loving husband and extended family. Oh and Yep, I'm a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

On my father's side of the family I am 8th generation Mormon. In my family history I am lucky to have some of the first missionaries of this Church. Men and women who were taught by and served with Joseph Smith Jr. the first prophet of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. James G Willie of the handcart companies is a great grandfather of mine. However on my other side, my mother was a convert to the Church. Her family joined when she was a young girl. I am lucky to know of her and my grand parents conversion stories and feel their testimonies and faith. But that's my history in the church. I am a Mormon because I have learned for myself that this is the true church of Christ on the earth today. I feel blessed by His love and grace in my life.

How I live my faith

I feel like Faith is an action word. I try to stay active in my weekly meetings and currently service with the children in our church. I love teaching them because the simple truths of the Gospel of Christ is what we learn. It's those basics that make up the foundation of my faith. When I do what I should and keep close to the teachings of the gospel, I feel the comfort of the Holy Ghost. I've had my share of experiences that have challenged my beliefs in God and my testimony of His church. It doesn't seem to matter what this mortality throws at me, it's the basic prinicples that guide me back to peace: Faith in my Savior, prayer to my loving Father, and seeking as well as giving forgiveness.
