Hi I'm Nichole

I love to laugh. I love my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Oklahoma, and I grew up in Hawaii and Utah. I love dancing, story telling, music, traveling, business management, joking, and laughing. I absolutely adore my entire family, all seven of them! My family and this gospel are the most important things in the world to me. I love them both with all that I am. I am currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Ukraine! I love it! It is an honor to be worthy to represent my Savior. Before I chose to serve a mission, I was attending Brigham Young University and I was in my Sophomore year working towards my bachelor degree in Business Management. After my mission, I will return to the University to complete my degree! Life is good :)

Why I am a Mormon

There are so many things I could say. But really, what it all comes down to is that I know it's right. I know this gospel is the restored gospel of Jesus Christ on the earth today. I don't wish it, I don't hope it, I KNOW it. I can feel the truth of it in all that I am. I know in my mind and in my heart that it is true. There is a feeling that I simply cannot deny. When I learned about the plan of salvation (God's plan for us), it felt like coming home. I know that it is true. I know the Book of Mormon is true. It has changed my life for the better. There have been times in my life when I felt I wasn't good enough, wasn't strong enough, or that the world was just too cruel. But, when I turned to my faith, I felt encircled about with love and safety in the arms of my Savior. I know now that, through Christ, I can conquer all and that, through Christ, I can learn and grow and become better every day. I am Mormon because I know God loves me, and I know this is who he wants me to be.

How I live my faith

Throughout my life, I have lived my faith in many various ways- from serving in leadership positions in youth groups and later on in supervisory positions for our women's group to teaching Sunday school lessons and visiting with sisters in my area- to standing up for my beliefs and being an honorable and active citizen. Recently, I decided to serve a full-time mission, and I was called to serve in the Ukraine, Donetsk Mission. I am dedicating the next 18 months of my life to spreading the good news of our Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ, and their restored gospel on this earth!
