Hi I'm Nicole

I am a college student. I will be serving a mission in France. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just finished my first year in college, and I am still deciding about what to do with my education and my career. Education is very important to me, and I am looking forward to returning to school after my mission. I studied abroad in Europe, and I love traveling, and especially taking pictures. I love photography and being creative. I have four brothers and sisters, and my family is very important to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the same church and organization that existed when Jesus Christ was on the earth. I know that the church is filled with imperfect people trying to be more like our Savior, and the perfect truth that Christ taught is how we all try to be better. I grew up as a member of this church, but I am still a member of this church because of my faith in Christ and my knowledge that the gospel brings me true happiness. I am excited to be a missionary in France and share the joy that the gospel carries with it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church every Sunday and trying to keep up with my personal spiritual habits, such as studying books of scripture and praying to my Father in Heaven. I have participated in my local congregation(s) by teaching Sunday School, playing piano for meetings, and speaking in church when I'm asked. I try to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ in all aspects of my life.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is a book of ancient scripture, very similar to the Bible, written by prophets and scribes who lived in the ancient Americas. These writers were inspired by God, and the book was translated in the early 1800s by Joseph Smith, through the power of God. Show more Show less
