Hi I'm Nicole

I am from California. I love sports, music, and spending time with family and friends. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a full-time student at Brigham Young University where I would like to apply for the nursing program. I work as a swim instructor over the summer, which is fitting because I love basically any activity outdoors. I played soccer as a defender all throughout junior high and high school. My favorite things to do include shooting hoops with my brother, cooking, and playing piano.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. For a long time, the main reason I went to church every week was because my parents wanted me to. Like many people, however, I wanted to find the truth for myself. Through personal experience and prayer in searching, I know Heavenly Father lives and Jesus Christ is His son. He came to Earth to die for our sins. I know that it is only through Christ that we may be cleansed and become worthy to return to God's presence to live with Him again. I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God, called to restore Christ's church upon the earth in these days. I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God. Happiness comes through obedience to God's teachings; He has set them in place because He loves us and has a plan for us. For me this knowledge is a source of great hope and strength. Though life may be difficult, I know I can always turn to the Lord. As often as I am willing to repent and follow Him, He is willing to forgive. He can help us find peace and happiness.

How I live my faith

Everyday, I strive to be a positive person as I stay busy working or going to school. I feel it is important to look for the good in every situation, and do the most with what I have been given, because Heavenly Father has blessed me with so much. I like to volunteer to play piano for church meetings. I have been called to serve a full-time mission in Tennessee and I am grateful for the opportunity I have to serve the people there.
