Hi I'm Nicole Donahoo

I'm a full-time missionary in Lisboa, Portugal. I love the color mustard yellow and learning new things. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am currently serving as a full-time missionary in the Portugal Lisboa mission. I love sharing God's love and His plan for our happiness with everyone. The gospel is the only way to be truly happy! Before my mission, I completed a year of school at Brigham Young University. I grew up in sunny Southern California, and I love to be outside. I love reading and I hope to travel the world someday and see life from different people's perspectives.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this is God's church on the Earth, and that Jesus Christ is my Savior. I know that we have a living prophet on the Earth today, and I know that he talks with our Heavenly Father. I am a Mormon because I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, and that Joseph Smith prayed and saw Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, and they instructed him to organize this church. I am a Mormon because I have prayed about the truthfulness of our doctrine, and have received a confirmation time and time again. The Lord continually removes my doubts and strengthens my faith. I am a Mormon because with the knowledge I have, there is no way I could not be!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by putting my trust in my Heavenly Father and His plan for me. There are a lot of things that I want to accomplish in this lifetime, but as I have given my life over to the Lord I have realized that He can make a lot more of my life than I ever could on my own. By doing what He wants me to rather than what I want to, I have been blessed beyond measure. I live my faith by relying on the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I am far from perfect, but I know that through the Atonement I can be a little bit better every day. His grace is sufficient to help us become the best that we can be, and I know that as I try my hardest to follow His example, Christ will lift me up and help me succeed. Right now I am blessed to act as a representative of Jesus Christ everyday. I have the opportunity to teach and testify of Him and of our Heavenly Father in everything that I do. I know that they live and that they love us and want us to be happy!
