Hi I'm Nicky Lin

I'm from Taiwan. I'm born and raised in the church. I love my family, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, this is Nicky Lin. I am a current student in Brigham Young University - Hawaii from Taichung, Taiwan. Psychology is my major. I love to serve others and help whoever needs a hand. I was born and raised in a Mormon family. Both of my parent were converts to the church, and this is such a great blessing to have such a wonderful parent in my life. I have a bigger sister and two younger brothers. I love them so much!

Why I am a Mormon

Having been raised in a Mormon family, I have learned many things about my religion how it plays an important role in my life. Since I was raised in a Mormon family, people may feel that I have no choice but to be part of the church member. Indeed, I have felt the same way before when I was a teenager. However, as getting older, I realize the gospel and the commandments can be applied in our daily life and we can live with it. Through God, everything can be possible if we have faith in Him. I love my parents and my siblings, and I know family can be together forever! I am grateful for all the things that I have, and I am proud of being Mormon.

How I live my faith

I attend church every Sundays, pray and read the scripture everyday. These are the easy way to live my faith unto God. I like missionary work, and I know everyone is a missionary of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints. I would share my experiences to my friends and help those who need comfort and support. I show my love to everyone through service and consideration. The way that keeps reminding myself as a member of the church is to be humble and be Christ-like to everyone. Furthermore, I got my mission call recently, and I have been called to the Salt Lake City Temple Square mission. I am so excited to serve as a full-time missionary and represent the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Nicky Lin
For me, reading scriptures is also exercising my faith to Jesus Christ. There are trials in our life, and sometimes the answer from God can be found from the scriptures. Sometimes, answers do not come immediately, but as we keep reading the scripture, we show our faith in Him that we believe in Him and know He will help us go through the difficulties in our life. I testify that we can have a better relationship with God and get closer to Him through prayers, scriptures, and the Holy Ghost. Reading scriptures has been so important to me that it is a part of my life. Show more Show less
