Hi I'm Nicole

I love music, outdoors and being with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My favorite thing in the world is being with my own little family. I enjoy camping with my husband and children, and love to see my kids excel when they play sports and the piano. I come from a large family, and I enjoy spending time with my siblings, too. We always laugh and have a great time together. I teach piano to children and adults in my home and love it! It is very rewarding to see someone's hard work pay off as they master learning the piano. I also love reading good books...my favorite being those by Jane Austen and anything like them. I like to combine reading a good book with running or walking on my treadmill. It is a great combination!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I feel so happy when I am doing the things involved with being a Mormon, like going to church, doing service and being with my family. When I read the Book of Mormon I feel great peace. I can feel the Holy Ghost testifying to me that what is taught in the scriptures is true! I know that as I follow the teachings of Christ I am happier than I have been at any other time in my life. I know that Heavenly Father loves me and each of His children. I know he hears me when I pray, and he always answers my prayers. I know that Jesus Christ atoned for the sins of all mankind, making it possible for me to return to live with Him again someday. I am so grateful that families can be together forever! my husband and I have a daughter who returned to live with Heavenly Father when she was only eleven months old, and I feel great comfort in the fact that I will see her again and be able to be her mom. I know that Joseph Smith restored Christ's true church to the earth, and I also know that Thomas S. Monson is the Lord's prophet today. When I follow the teachings of the prophet I feel happy.

How I live my faith

I work with the youth in my church...specifically the young women. I absolutely love doing this! It is so fun to be around the young women who have strong values and stand for truth and righteousness! Recently we enjoyed a girl's camp together and had some spiritual experiences and other fun as well. We were together for three days and nights in the mountains, enjoying nature and feeling the love of God out in nature. I also help the youth plan other activities. We put together a dance for the youth in our community and had about 300 youth together, dancing and having a good time. Of course, there was plenty of good refreshments to go around, too! Another thing I love to do at church is play the piano and organ. Playing spiritual music makes me feel good.
