Hi I'm Nicole

I'm the second oldest of seven children. I play the piano and the violin. I sing. I'm a wife. I'm a nursing student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I moved to California with my family when I was young. I love the beach. I enjoy boogie boarding. I attended college and met my husband. After we married, we moved so he could complete medical school. I'm striving to finish my education. It's been hard at times, trying to finish school, but I'm grateful for the opportunity to learn.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into an active LDS family. My dad, though, was a convert. My parents have a great love of Christ and His gospel. They taught me to love and serve those around me. As I grew up in the Church, I prayed about the gospel, the Book of Mormon, and Joseph Smith. I felt the sweet, calm, and peaceful whisperings of the Spirit. It didn't have to be a spectacular revelation. I knew in my heart it was true and felt that testimony from the Spirit. I continue to pray to my Heavenly Father. I feel His love for me. When I pray for others, I feel the love my Heavenly Father has for them. He provides me with many opportunities to serve others and to share my talents. I am grateful for my parents and the testimony they shared with me of the truth of Christ's words and of the sanctity and importance of the family. My husband and I strive to love and serve each other, and someday we hope to share our testimonies with our children.

How I live my faith

I serve as a youth leader to the young women in my ward. I also spend some time each week giving piano lessons to members of a Spanish ward. I love sharing my talents. I know they can bring us closer to the Lord. I strive to keep in contact with sisters in my ward and visit them. We all need a friend, and we need to know the Lord is looking out for us. I try to listen for their needs and be a listening ear or a shoulder to cry on when they need it. At home, at church, or at school, I always try to speak kindly of my husband. When we're together each day, my husband and I always try to set apart some quality time together for listening to each other, playing games, etc. We both feel the family is important, and as the central part of our beliefs, we want to continue to nurture that relationship. We hope our children will see the love we have for each other and look for a good relationship of their own one day. My husband and I also try to be available as babysitters for families in our ward. We will have children of our own one day, but we love to give a helping hand to our friends who have children and need a break to be alone together.
