Hi I'm Nicole

I'm a student at Brigham Young University, a volunteer in my community, and a lover of plant-based cooking. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Love local food and classical music.

Why I am a Mormon

This gospel brings peace in this life!

How I live my faith

Being a missionary is the best thing ever! It means I have 18 months to do absolutely nothing except invite people to learn about Jesus Christ. This unique opportunity has been more rewarding than I will ever be able to describe. I'm soaking up every minute.

Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

Nicole
We follow the example of Jesus Christ, who was baptized by immersion to "fulfill all righteousness" (Mark 16:16; 3 Nephi 11:21-26; Matthew 3:15). We are baptized by someone who has God’s priesthood authority for the remission of sins. (Acts 2:38, Acts 22:16). We are also baptized to become members of the Church of Jesus Christ, and to enter the kingdom of God (John 3:5). Through the ordinance of baptism, we make a promise, called a covenant, with God. We promise to accept Christ, to become His followers, and to keep His commandments to the end of our lives. In return, our Heavenly Father promises to forgive our sins and let us return to live with Him, provided we keep our covenants. Show more Show less
