Hi I'm Nicole

I grew up in Arizona. I listen and perform music. I love adventure. I strive to serve others whenever I can. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a passion for music. I love to listen to a wide variety of clean and uplifting music and also perform some of my own through singing or playing the piano. I also love finding adventures in the outdoors. Camping, backpacking, hiking, swimming, rappelling, rock climbing etc. are all up my alley. I feel that nature brings us closer to our Father in Heaven, gives us a broader perspective on life and can help us discover our true amazing selves. When I'm feeling creative, I love to take photographs and then edit and enhance them digitally. I'm also a major bookworm and will occasionally try my hand at writing. I also love to spend time with my family and friends. Whether its a holiday tradition, or a church youth activity, I connect with others the best through service and fun.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon simply because I believe. Through following the examples of others around my and those I have read about in our scripture, I have grown (and still am growing) my testimony. I've learned that you generally don't suddenly become fully converted, instead you grow little by little. I've also found that you find your testimony when you share it with others. Every time I share my testimony, I am reminded again, that I belong to this church because I believe in the truthfulness of it. I know this gospel brings so much joy and happiness into this dark world and I just can't let go of the promise that I will receive and give immeasurable blessings through my activity in this church.

How I live my faith

I have been the first councilor in the Beehive (young women ages 12&13) Presidency and currently hold the same position in the Mia Maid Presidency (young women ages 14&15). This gives me more opportunities to serve my peers and work together in faith with the other members of the presidency by planning activities, encouraging unity and more. I've also received my Personal Progress award, which is a program which requires young women to improve their own lives and others. This program has helped me gain confidence in myself and grow closer to my Savior. I am currently working on my Honor Bee, which calls for 40 hours of general service and to read the Book of Mormon, one of our sacred texts, entirely through. When I'm not at church, I try to make myself an example to my younger siblings and my friends at school by standing up for what I believe in and inviting them to do so with me. In an increasingly tumultuous world, this brings me stability and the ability to help others with their own complicated lives.
