Hi I'm Niki Newman

I'm Australian. I love the beach, but I love Jesus and being a Mormon more!

About Me

I am 20 years old, I love the beach and spending time with my family and friends. I'm love to swim and be out in the sun. I am the youngest in my family, with an older brother and an older sister. Music is something that I love - although I'm not very good at it.. I also really love to dance, again I'm not too good at it! I have just finished my second year of my Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood) at Queensland University of Technology. I have wanted to be an Early Childhood teacher since I was young and am excited to finish my degree. I have taken a year and a half off from university to share the message of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ to the people of Portland Oregon in the United States of America.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints brings more peace and joy into my life than anything else. I know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of my Saviour Jesus Christ. Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has helped me understand who I really am as a daughter of a loving Father in Heaven, and who I have the potential to be. I am a much happier person because I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by continually trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ, that He will help me overcome the daily challenges of life. He promises us throughout the Scriptures - that He will help if we pray and ask Him. I go to Church every Sunday, and strengthen my beliefs and understanding of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ as I learn more each week. I study from the scriptures, both the Bible and the Book of Mormon to gain greater knowledge of the unique plan that Heavenly Father has for each of His children.
