Hi I'm Nicole

I was born and raised in Colorado. I love the outdoors! I love to play sports, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to be outside, and I could spend any day camping, fishing, hiking, or hunting, especially with my dad and older brother. I love to spend time with my close and extended family. I'm a college student working towards a career in the medical field, although I'm still undecided on the specifics. I love to run on the trails near my home. I enjoy playing the piano and drawing. Someday I would love to travel to far away places and explore the beauty of the world. I feel extremely blessed with all that God has given to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized as a member of the Mormon church when I was 8 years old. That was my choice, but I was not yet fully converted to the gospel that day. My conversion to the gospel has been a process of many years, happening almost imperceptibly as I've studied the scriptures, attended church, prayed to God for knowledge and confirmation, and by ACTING. I have gained a testimony of the principles of the gospel because I have lived them. I gained a testimony of tithing by paying tithing and seeing wonderful results. I gained a testimony of The Book of Mormon by reading it, praying to know of its truthfulness, and living the principles taught in it. I know that this is a gospel of ACTION. Because of my actions and the feelings of peace and joy in my life because of the gospel, I know that this is truly The Church of Jesus Christ, restored in these last days by Joseph Smith. He was a prophet of God. He saw Jesus Christ and our Eternal Father; by Their power he translated the ancient text that is The Book of Mormon. I know this book is the word of God. I know that Jesus Christ lives. He lived a perfect life and performed an infinite Atonement for us. Because of Him, we never have to be alone. Because of Him, we can have true joy, now and for eternity. Because of Him, we can spend eternity with our families, and we can become like God. This knowledge is my light in the darkness, my hope and my joy. I would be lost without my knowledge of this joyous gospel, which is why I'm so eager to share it with others, that they too may have hope and joy and light in a world that is so troubled and confused.

How I live my faith

Right now I am a full time missionary in San Diego, California. I have devoted 18 months of my life to teaching others the great news that God speaks to us today. In the crazy world that we live in, there is no greater joy to me then to tell others that they can be together with those they love forever. We all can have peace and joy right now and for forever because of Jesus Christ. I try to see others as Jesus Christ sees them and get to know others as God knows them. I live my faith by loving others, and trying my best to be my best, knowing that all things are in the hands of my loving Father in Heaven.
