Hi I'm Nikolas Hamelin

I love kayaking and ballroom dancing. I love dum-dum suckers. My family is my everything. And I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm from the town of Ammon Idaho. I have three brothers and they are my best friends. I love the outdoors and love to rock climb, backpack, and really do anything that gets me outside. I'm obsessed with Kayaking and can spend hours on end in the rapids. I love to ballroom dance and have had the opportunity to compete in England. Jesus Christ's gospel is my everything. It was brings me the greatest joy and what keeps me going everyday! I'm currently sharing that while serving a mission in Michigan.

Why I am a Mormon

I was very depressed as a child and as a teenager and could never find anything that kept me happy. I had a great friend who I was unloading my stresses on one night and her response was to simply invite me to pray. I tried it out and I felt peace like I hadn't before. That led me on a path of reading my scriptures, praying daily, and being actively involved in church activities. As I did those things my life was filled with joy. I'm a Mormon because this faith as healed me in ways I never thought possible. I've prayed to know specifically if this is God's true church and I've received a definite answer that it is. I know that this is Jesus Christ's church restored to the earth. I know its teachings are true, and I've seen that as I've lived the standards of the church I have had lasting happiness!

How I live my faith

Everyday we have the choice of how we're going to treat people and the love we are going to share. I live my faith by applying the teachings of the gospel and striving to do what Christ would do. I share my faith with everyone and work to help them come even closer to Christ.
