Hi I'm Nicole

I love sports and music. I like to go on adventures. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Wisconsin and I joined the LDS church when I was 17. I went to school at Winona State University my freshman year of college. I had such a wonderful time there, but I didn't feel like it was where I needed to be. So I decided to transfer to Brigham Young University. And it was the best decision I've ever made. I have loved every minute here at BYU. I have met some wonderful people and created great friendships. I am studying elementary education, and I have come to love my major. I will be taking 18 months off of school while I serve a full-time mission in the Argentina, Buenos Aires North mission. I am excited to leave and I can't wait to spread the gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I became a member of the church after the missionaries had been teaching me for almost five years. I think I always knew that the gospel was true, but I was afraid to live it. When I finally made the commitment to fast and pray to know if the Book of Mormon was true and if this was Christ's church, I got the answer that it was. I made the decision to be baptized, and it is the best decision I have ever made. I felt so happy afterward, and I just wondered why I had held myself back so much, and I wish I hadn't had waited so long. This gospel has brought me so many blessings and it has brought me such happiness throughout my life. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that he restored the gospel to the earth today. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and that he died for my sins. I love Him so much. I am a Mormon because I know that this church is true and it brings me so much happiness. And I am so grateful that it was brought into my life.

How I live my faith

I follow the commandments that Jesus Christ has given to us, and I strive to keep the covenants I have made always. I follow Him in faith and am always working to become a better person. I have found that reading my scriptures every day, and praying, and going to church has helped me tremendously in keeping my faith strong.
