Hi I'm Nikki Koster

I'm a Mormon and proud of it.

About Me

Born and raised in Pennsylvania. Served a full-time in Estonia. Went to BYU. Married Paul and have 5 beautiful children. Love playing and coaching volleyball.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was a young child, I attended different churches with various friends. When I was about 9 years old, my grandparents invited me to attend church with them. They were converts to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. When I went, it was just right. At a young age, I didn't know why it was right-it just was. As I reached teenage years, I was the only member of the church in my high school and I really had to find out for myself why I believed the way I did. It was then that I really strived to read my scriptures and say my personal prayers so that I could decide what kind of "believer" I was going to be. The gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored in its fullness through a man named Joseph Smith. And that fullness is found only in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We do have a living prophet who is the mouthpiece of the Lord. The gospel brings peace and comfort. It answers questions of who we are and what this life is all about. It is that sure foundation that makes life so much more tolerable in those difficult times. For me, life is unimagineable without it.

How I live my faith

I really do try to be an example of what I believe in my community by volunteering at my childrens' school and sporting activities. I serve in our ward. I love working with other women in organizing our women's meetings on Sundays. I enjoy finding every opportunity to let others know that I AM MORMON!
