Hi I'm Nisha Baur

I'm a working mom, pediatrician. I spend my free time in the sun, gardening, reading and waterskiing. I am Mormon.

About Me

I work as a full time pediatrician, volunteer at my kids school and love all things outdoors. I have 3 children and our family tries to do as much together as possible. I had all 3 of my children through medical school and although difficult never wavered as I knew this was God's plan for me. As a family we spend our time at gymnastic meets for my daughter, rock climbing together as a family and enjoying good old fashioned fun. I am an avid reader and can stay up all night with a good book. I am introspective and love to think about the deep things of the world. I love to sing and dance - to my children's embarrassment.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church, but came to christ in my late teen years. I was headed into inactivity, I had spent a camping trip drinking. As I was driving home from the camping trip, the sun was coming over the mountain. I felt in my heart the great love God had for me, and a knowledge that I was wasting my time on earthly pursuits. I knew I was capable of more. I had to change friends, return to church and work to repent but I felt such peace and love through the process I knew the gospel was the source of all truth and light. Since that moment I have worked hard to remain on the path of discipleship. I try to make small adjustments in my daily life that will lead to repentance and return me to the path if I have strayed. I don't believe in New Years resolutions, but in daily and weekly ones. As I have studied the sciences and the human bodies, the great creation fits into a celestial sense, and again as I see the sun rise over the mountains, I am still and know that he is God. I have come to know Christ more personally throughout the years. I have received direct personal guidance in my choice of eternal companion, decisions regarding family and career. As Joseph Smith, I know he is God, he knows I know and I can not deny it.

How I live my faith

I teach gospel doctrine in my ward - I am so nervous to be in front of people but I love the opportunity it gives me to delve deep into subjects. I pray for inspiration with my patients, through the holy ghost I am able to bless other's lives - at times I order a test without my brain knowing exactly why, but my heart knowing it is being led and have found cancer early enough to treat, and have been blessed to have the opportunity of holding a child's hand just before they pass away. On a daily basis I find inspiration in the early morning hours, especially through reading the book of mormon. As president Hinckley said. Moments are the molecules of eternity. I try to focus on being still throughout the day so I can be led even in the smallest of moments.
