Hi I'm Nikita

I grew up in Southern Oregon. I love sunsets, dancing, and playing volleyball. I'm a mormon.

About Me

Currently I am studying to be a high school Biology and Spanish teacher. I love my biology classes, and enjoy learning about how nature and our bodies work on even a microscopic level. In high school I played on the volleyball and tennis teams. Volleyball remains one of my favorite things to do, especially with my family in the front yard! I also enjoy dancing. For two semesters I was on the collegiate ballroom team for the university, but my favorite is to just go have fun and dance with my friends. Reading children's books is also a favorite pastime of mine. My favorites include: Quick as a Cricket, Mars Needs Moms, Pete and Pickles, Is There Really a Human Race?, and so many more. I also enjoy finger painting. My skills are less than superb, but I find it enjoyable and relaxing. Recently I've developed a love for running. All growing up I refused to run unless it was connected to playing a sport, but now I love just going for a jog. My family loves going on trips together, especially when wildlife is involved.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents taught me what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ. They taught me to find answers to my questions by searching the scriptures, and asking God in prayer. Growing up, I always felt that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was true. I can't say that there has been a single event or moment that has determined my decision to be a mormon. My conviction continues to grow as I work to study and live what the gospel teaches. I'm a mormon because I have prayed to know if Joseph Smith was a prophet called of God, and I have felt the Spirit confirm to me that he was. I know it is true.

How I live my faith

Serving others is the way I try to show the Lord my gratitude for the gifts of his love and the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. My local congregation has given me the opportunity to plan our monthly activities. My goal is to plan events that unite us through wholesome recreation and service to the community. We want everyone to feel needed, wanted, and loved.
