Hi I'm Nicole

I'm from Chicago. I'm an adventurist, a student, and a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Mexican American from Chicago, IL. I love to dance, read, pretend I'm good at photography, and learn about new cultures. To keep myself busy and active, I like to do Zumba and Pilates. I am also a lover of nature and good books!

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? Because it makes me happy! I've realized that the only times that I am truly happy in life is when I am living righteously. Being a Mormon has given me the understanding of who I am, where I come from, and where I'm going. I love it! Having knowledge of the gospel makes life so much easier. I love the fact that I can be with my family for eternity, and that I have a Savior and Heavenly Father who know me and have an eternal love for me. I'm a Mormon because the gospel brings me peace in a chaotic world. I'm a Mormon because I've read the Book of Mormon, and have come to know through prayer that it is true. Through prayer, we can know the truth of all things. I got my answer, so I will forever and always be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by always trying to be like my Savior Jesus Christ. He is the center of my life and I have come to realize that I am the happiest when I am trying to be like Him and follow in His footsteps. I go to church every Sunday, go to church activities, and give service. I read my scriptures every day and keep a scripture journal because I get the most out of it when I actually study and ponder the lessons I read. Basically, I try to do the best I can! I love my Savior Jesus Christ, He is my best friend. So I try to be like Him because that's what brings me happiness! (:

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Absolutely! I love reading my scriptures. The Bible and Book of Mormon together are amazing! There is such a sweet spirit when I can feast upon the words of Christ when reading, studying, and pondering the words of the holy scriptures. Show more Show less

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

I think one of the biggest ways to come to know our Heavenly Father is to talk to Him. We are His children, so we have the opportunity to talk to Him in prayer. Tell him about your day, your concerns and worries, your accomplishments, your gratitude, your dreams, and your needs. He wants to hear from you--He is waiting. So go for it! Your relationship with Him will grow as you pray, study the scriptures, and obey His commandments. He is there for us, He is just waiting for us to come unto Him. Show more Show less
