Hi I'm Nicole Randall

I'm from Arizona and love anywhere that is warm. I love making desserts and want to open a bakery someday. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I went to college in Hawaii. Then worked at a spa as a concierge. Currently I have no idea what I am doing with my life but I'm trying to figure it out and just enjoying the beach and the sun. I love baking and cooking and sharing anything I make with others, I'm thinking about either going to culinary school or trying to open a bakery. Drawing and writing are also hobbies of mine(although I'm not great at either). I also love swimming, hiking, and anything where I can be outside soaking in the sunlight, seriously the sun is my best friend. One more thing, I love movies, especially anything with Cary Grant or Frank Sinatra in it, and television, and I get so involved in them that I end up laughing and crying with them like they are real people that I personally know.

Why I am a Mormon

It started out that I went to church because my parents did, and their parents did all the way back to the foundation of the church. I love and trust my family, so if all of them believe it to be true then it must be. Slowly, I gained my own testimony of the church and feel like I am continually being converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ as we are continually being tried and our faith is continually being tested. The first time was probably when I was in junior high. That's when my friends started to realize I had some weird habits like not swearing, dating, or going out to do things on Sundays. They started asking my why, so I started to ask God. Whenever I'd ask I'd get the feeling that it was the right thing to do. It's small and simple but that is how my testimony started. It has grown every single time I have felt lost or alone or needed help or had questions about teachings of the church and have gone to the Lord for answers. Because He does answer. Like the time I was depressed and started shutting out the world and thinking about what the world would be like if I wasn't in it, and the lord heard my cries and placed multiple people in my life that needed me and let me know just how special and important I was. Or when I was afraid I was going to be washed away by a tsunami and I prepared for the worst and prayed along with probably most of the island and made it through safe and sound. I am Mormon because every time I have put all my faith in God, He has come through for me. And whenever I go to church or read the scriptures or listen to the prophet speak, I feel his love overwhelming me.

How I live my faith

I am a Family Home Evening coordinator. Which means I help plan activities, games and an uplifting message for every Monday night when our branch gets together. Its a great time to have fun and bond with everyone. It really helps our small branch come together and feel like a family that cares and supports each other. I also love hanging out with the missionaries and try to go tracting or on splits with the sisters whenever I can.
