Hi I'm Nicole Elise

I grew up with an adoptive family, and I'm a photography major in college. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 18 years old; June 5th 1994 I stand 5 feet, 3 inches off the ground. I am adopted, and have found my wonderful birthparents♥ I'm outgoing, and I have a very bubbly personality. I am happy, and it seems like I’m always smiling and laughing. I'm very friendly, loving, caring, independent, and stubborn at times. I am not an angry person. I am talented in music. I play the violin, and piano.. I love doing anything outside, and I love playing sports. I enjoy cooking and cleaning. I am an active member in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I love photography, this is my major. I love my life very much there have been trials and challenges of course but, I wouldn't trade them for the world. They've shaped me into the woman I’ve become. I have 3 amazing friends that are my guardian angels, we might be apart, but I hope you always know. You’ll be with me wherever I go. I never take a day i have for granted because everyday that i have is a blessing

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed to born by a biological mother who was to young to have rasie me, but she was mormon and she knew she wanted her daughter to grow up with the same principles as she did, so she gave me up for adopted through the LDS Social Services. So, I was blessed to be raised in an adoptive home that was mormon. I've been an active mormon my whole life. Growing up I always wondered what I would have been like, or how my childhood would have been, if I was not adopted, and i've come to the conclusion that no matter how hard it was for me growing up and how hard it was for my parents to give me up, they made the right decision. I would be completely lost in this big world if I did not have the gospel to help me through things and to guide me to the straight and narrow path. I'm forever and eternally grateful that I am mormon and that my birthparents made this choice for me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an active church member, actively reading and pondering my scriptures, talking and communicating with my Father in Heaven more than once a day. I live my faith by being thankful for everything my Savior gives me, I have faith in him more than anyone else, he will never lead me astray. He has helped me and been there for me through the thick and the thin breezy times. He is more than my Savior, he's my brother, and a friend. I can go to him for anything and I know he will be there and will UNDERSTAND everything I say and feel. Having faith in him, a testimony of him and his atonment, and also having a relationship with him is the most important thing to me

What is the Book of Mormon?

Nicole Elise
Whenever my friends would ask, I would just say that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon gives truth and revelation to those who are seeking for answers and are wanthing the truth. It teaches you values and principles, and it talks about many prophets and there experiences. Show more Show less
