Hi I'm Nick.

I'm 23, a husband, and father of 3. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of 3 wonderful kids, 2 boys and 1 girl. I work part time as a manager in auto parts while going to school. I am going to school to become a software developer. I have many hobbies. I enjoy mountain biking, getting to work on cars and build project cars, photography, gardening, cooking, and much more.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe in His gospel. I believe the church was restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith. I am a recent convert, and I married a woman who was born into the church, and we have been raising our kids into the church. I attended meetings regularly, but never thought about joining until 2011, when I finally had my missionary lessons. The spirit was very strong during those lessons, and it was a very good feeling. I had been doing everything that a member would do, and I remember the missionaries calling me a "dry Mormon", only because I had not been baptized.

How I live my faith

I enjoy teaching my children about the Gospel every day. I have a calling as a scout leaders for some awesome young men that I truly enjoy doing. When church events come up, I try to participate in as many of the activities as I can.

What is the priesthood?

Nick.
The priesthood is the authority given to the male church members to act in God's name. With that authority, we can perform baptism's and blessings. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons perform proxy baptisms in their temples?

Nick.
Not everyone has had a chance to receive the gospel. In our temples, we perform baptisms for individuals who have passed on to give them a chance to receive the gospel, and members of the Church take the place of the deceased and are baptized for them. This will give the deceased a chance to learn of the gospel and make a decision to accept it or not. Show more Show less
