Hi I'm Nick

I'm a British-Mexican, married to an Argentine-New Yorker, three sons born in Madrid. One of those multi-national families!

About Me

I'm a convert - so is my wife Heidi. We met in theater. She was the choreographer, and I was the play's "bad guy"! My job takes me all over the world , so my idea of a good time is being home with Heidi and our three sons. Doesn't get much better than that!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because of the marvelous blessings the Gospel of Jesus Christ offers. I'm so grateful to have a family that will last together forever. I'm a Mormon because the Gospel teaches me to be a better husband and father. I'm a Mormon because I can compare my life before I converted , to my life as a member of the Church - the difference is astounding, as I think back to times when I was behaving in ways that were just down right wrong, creating isolation and loneliness. I now form part of a huge Gospel family, that accepts everyone, and builds us into the person and potential we all really have. I'm a Mormon because I want to return to the presence of our Heavenly Father with my wife and sons, my own mother, father and brother, and live a life in accordance with that wonderful plan of happiness.

How I live my faith

At home I live my faith by establishing with my wife, and as best as we can, a house that is Gospel-centered. We pray, read Scriptures, and invest in family time as part and parcel of how we live. We take family trips as a way to create family memories that build the character of who we are, and what we value. We share messages from the Scriptures and Church leaders to keep us focused on the right things. As a business consultant my job takes me all over the world - literally. Name a country, and I've probably been there! I live my faith on the road by doing my best to represent the Church in what I say and do , inside and outside of business settings. As I come across people of multiple cultures, beliefs, traditions, I've found that it's the attitude of recognizing other people's points of view; making their comments valuable to a discussion; encouraging rather than putting down, that draw people into wanting to know more about what makes us all Mormons.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Nick
It's really a lot more simple than many people think. Here are a couple of ideas: I suggest you put one aspect of Mormon doctrine to the test for a month - for example don't drink alcohol or coffee, don't smoke ; visit a couple of people who you know are having a hard time ; stop any behavior that is making you sad or affecting your self-confidence - and see how you begin to feel over the course of the month. Jesus Christ taught that when we choose to do the right things, the blessings will appear. That's how it works. Also read as much as you can of the Book of Mormon, with the intent of trying to find out whether or not the words that are written are true. Do not try to fake your way into believing or disbelieving. Just read, and be willing to accept a feeling or a thought that crosses your mind as evidence - spiritual evidence - that confirms to you personally whether the Book of Mormon is true or false. Those are the only two options - true or false. The confirmation will come to you when you pray to your Heavenly Father and you ask Him to answer your question. Show more Show less
