Hi I'm Nikki T

I'm an artist, musician, I was a missionary in the Netherlands & Belgium, I'm recovering from a bike accident, and I'm a mormon.

About Me

In December of 2014, I hit black ice while biking in the Netherlands. At the time, I was serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I got a severe concussion and severe whiplash (adding onto the whiplash I received from an accident one month prior, where I was hit by a car). I came home in May of 2015 to receive treatment, after we spent almost five months trying to get me back into the full swing of things. I am so grateful for the challenges and blessings I have received. Struggling physically for so long has helped me to feel closer to my Savior, who has felt all of the pain not only I have felt, but that each and every person has ever felt. I am still healing, and as I have met with doctors and worked with them to heal, I have learned of the great need we all have to heal spiritually, and to let the Savior in and to allow him to carry us through the trials in life. I love to paint, learn, sing, play/listen to music and to spend time with my friends and family. I also love to meet new people, spend time outdoors and bake. I love being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The gospel has given me hope in the darkest of times.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, so I've grown up in the church. I am so grateful for this, and I'm also grateful that nothing was forced upon me. I made my own decision to follow Christ's church, and I've developed my own individual testimony of it's truth. My testimony has developed (and continues to develop) through different spiritual experiences that I've had and have. In my life, I've struggled with the weaknesses and imperfections that I have. I've had dark times in my life when I have felt like I just didn't measure up. When those times came, I knelt in prayer and strived to do what God would have me do. He helped me and continues to do so each day. Through Jesus Christ's Atonement I know that I can be forgiven, and that I can 'measure up'. I have a strong testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is truly His church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by working on my relationship with my Heavenly Father every day. I pray to Him throughout each day, I read His words from the Book of Mormon and the Bible and I strive to become more like Christ each day. I live my faith by working with Christ and trusting in His plan for me. I strive to serve those around me and to share the joy I have because of the gospel. I live my faith by sharing my personal experiences with others, and by trying to help them see that there is always, always, always hope.
