Hi I'm Nicholas Squires

I am a convert of the church since July 2011 and I served an ASL mission in Washington D.C.

About Me

I am a recent convert of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and the only member on either side of my family tree. I served a mission in the Washington D.C. North mission and I loved it! I am back in California and I can't wait for my next adventure to begin!

Why I am a Mormon

Honestly I used to dislike Mormons, they always seemed really strict and bland and just no fun. Then one day my co-worker brought me to a church event and there I met the missionaries and started to take the lessons. It didn't take me more than 5 minutes to realize how wrong I was about the members of the church, they showed me nothing but a kind welcome and really supported my decisions and beliefs. It really made me think twice before judging people based on rumors. Now I've been a member for a little over a year and absolutely love it.

How I live my faith

I love Family Home Evening(it's an event every monday night that helps you connect as a family or with other members of the church) we play dodgeball and board games and make quilts for those who need it, it truly is a blessing. I was a member of the Fellowshipping commity before my mission call and it is always fun to go out and teach the gospel to members of the church and make new friends.

How do I become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church)?

I would suggest inviting the missionaries in your area over for dinner one night and asking them to share a brief thought with you, or just dive right in and take all the missionary lessons. What most people don't understand is that the lessons are completely for educational purposes, no obligation required. Or you could just ask for a, completely free, Book of Mormon to read. If you read and pray about the Book of Mormon and its truth, I promise you that you will receive an answer. Show more Show less
