Hi I'm Nicole

I'm a fraternal twin. I'm the wife of an "Italian Stallion". I'm a writer. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My biggest turn-on towards anything is work. I am infatuated with the idea of grueling, dirty, push-you-to-your-limits hard work. I'm an Apolo Anton Ohno fanatic. I was born into this world with a companion. My twin and I were born twelve weeks premature. I grew up in California. I'm a college student. I enjoy camping and playing in the dirt. My father and I hiked to the top of Half Dome a couple summers ago. Writing is my creative outlet, and running is my meditation. I met my born-n-raised Italian husband at school and took a month-long trip to his home in Rome, Italy to meet the whole family. We were engaged that month and it's been a blissful beginning of our forever together.

Why I am a Mormon

They say that everyone converts at least once in their life. I believe this. I "converted" when I was 18-years old. I never quite fell away from the church; I always knew it was true. I owe that to my parents. They were consistent with going to church and enforcing the standards and guidelines. That, in itself, was a great example to me. I am a Mormon because I have seen how it can change lives.

How I live my faith

"I have lived through much, and now I think I have found what is needed for happiness. A quiet secluded life in the country, with the possibility of being useful to people whom it is easy to do good and who are not accustomed to have it done to them; then work which one hopes may be of some use; then rest, nature, books, music, love for one's neighbor-- such is my idea of happiness. And then, on top of all that, you for a mate, and children, perhaps-- what more can the heart of a [woman] desire?" -- Tolstoy This is how I strive to live my life-- along with following the guidelines of those sweet men (apostles and prophets).

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

YES! and YES! We believe that when we are married, it is not only "until death do you part", it is for all time and eternity. Like the fairy tale saying, "They lived happily ever after". We believe that. Not only is it the husband and wife, but their children are permanently sealed to them when they are married. So, when it comes to death--a part of life--we mourn and miss them when they leave this earth, but we are always reminded that we will see them again. Show more Show less
