Hi I'm Nicolee

I'm married with 5 children. I enjoy reading, hiking and exercising. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for 20 years.  I have 4 daughters and one son. I grew up in Sacramento, California. We moved to the Midwest to raise our family. I enjoy reading classical literature, and my favorite books are Jane Eyre and David Copperfield. I also love to watch Masterpiece Theatre Classic on PBS. I have been a stay at home mom for most of my married life, but have recently started working again, doing insurance work from my home office.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family and was raised as an active member of the church. I continue to follow His gospel because I know, at the core of my being, that it is of God. The teachings are of family, love, service, compassion, repentance, forgiveness, unselfishness, kindness, virtue, and all things good. I feel blessed to have had a knowledge of His gospel throughout my life as a compass to guide me. I feel blessed to have an understanding of this life, why I am here, and where I'm going. I have had trials in my life, as we all do. My faith in Jesus Christ and in His ability to help and heal have carried me through these trials and I have grown from them. The gospel of Jesus Christ helps me to be a better person.

How I live my faith

I have been blessed with many opportunities to serve at church. Right now, I get to be a Cub Scout Wolf Den Leader for the Boy Scouts Of America. We do activities that help them progress to earn their badge. Some of the activities center around being trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent. We learn about being a good citizen, how to have good manners, and be an asset to our communities. These boys are energetic and so fun to be with! I attend our church services weekly, and enjoy visiting each month with women from our congregation. I have been assigned, with a partner, two women to visit each month. We call this "Visiting Teaching". We visit each month to get to know them, deliver a message of faith, and to be aware of any needs they may have. In turn, two women are assigned to visit me monthly for the same purpose. The Visiting Teaching program has been a blessing in my life. I have made sweet friends, laughed, and have connected with these women. We live in a time where face to face contact and conversation is dwindling. It is refreshing to take time to sit and visit and to share hope and faith promoting conversation. I have also had the opportunity to serve these women over the years. Often times, service takes our focus from ourselves, and helps us endure a trial that we may be facing.
