Hi I'm Nyanial!

I love music, friends, family, and food! I major in laughter and quirkiness, and I am a MORMON!!

About Me

I really love show choir! I'm also in two choirs and orchestra. I play the viola! I'm a junior at Grand Island Senior High and am loving every single second of it! I go to early morning seminary and that really helps to start my day out right. I read...a lot. Most of my friends are characters you would find in a comedy film! They make my life hilarious along with my HUGE family! I'm the oldest of 6 kids; three sisters and two brothers! I have a single mother and I help her out with EvErYtHiNg. I'm more than happy to help her though! I tell my non-member friends (which I have a lot of) as much as I can about the church because I'm practicing to become a missionary! Learning about new cultures and all about the world and histories of countries facinates me! I would LOVE to travel the world someday and visit where I was born in Africa! I enjoy serving others too! I'm a passionate learner of the gospel and love Love LOve LOVe LOVE Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and our prophet Thomas S. Monson...and of course my family (I count everyone in the church as family) and friends!

Why I am a Mormon

Well, my mom came home with two finely dressed gentlemen and I wanted to know what was goin on! They explained that they were missionaries of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints but I zoned out after the word "church" because I already was a member of a church. My mom pleaded me to listen, and I got a feeling that I should. So I did, and I got baptized two weeks later! I just LOVED learning about the things they were telling us, and when we visited the church for the first time, I saw one of the nicest kids in middle school there, so I thought it must be a good chuch! After joining the church, I gained a testimony of the gospel, the atonement, Joseph Smith, and the living prophets today!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example to others!
