Hi I'm Kolby Nottingham

I grew up in sunny California. I have been called to serve in the Brazil, Porto Alegre South mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated from high school in 2014. I listen to jazz music, play the trombone,sing and swing dance. I like to spend time doing video production on private and collaborative projects. I plan on starting my career in software engineering after getting a computer science degree at BYU. Before all of this I will be serving a 2-year, full-time mission in the Brazil, Porto Alegre South mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that the gospel is true and it has been witnessed to me many times. The gospel brings peace and organization to my life, and I know it will bring my unimaginable joy in the life to come.

How I live my faith

I've grown up in the church and have always enjoyed spending time with my LDS and non-LDS peers. I answer the questions that my non-LDS friends have about the gospel and love teaching others about my faith. I strive to be an example of Jesus Christ in my everyday life and bring joy to others.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Kolby Nottingham
The Book of Mormon was written by ancient prophets just like The Bible. Prophets are men who are called of God to be God's spokesperson here on earth. These prophets recorded the histories of their people and dealings with God here on the American continent. Lehi was the first prophet recorded of in The Book of Mormon. In 600 B.C. he and his family were warned by the Lord to leave Jerusalem and travel to the Americas. He and the prophets following him testified of the coming of Christ. One of the last Book of Mormon prophets was Mormon. Around 400 A.D. he abridged the writings of all the prophets previous to him, and compiled the writings into one book. This book of scripture, known as The Book of Mormon, is named after this final prophet historian. Show more Show less
