Hi I'm Nick Andriese

I love skiing, I love knowledge, I love life, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I currently am a senior in high school. I have been called to serve a mission and will be leaving this summer. I plan on going to college to study chemical or materials engineering after. I have two older brothers. I love to ski with my family and friends. I dirt bike with my dad. I love electronic dance music. My brother and I own our own Dj business. I try to stay positive and love optimism.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be a Mormon because I have seen for my self how amazing this faith is. I grew up as a Mormon, but I started to really gain a testimony of Christ and the restoration of His power on this earth for my self as I read and studied the Book of Mormon on my own for the first time at the age of 16. A tangible and peaceful power comes from honest study of this beautiful book. The Spirit I feel while reading the Book of Mormon is indescribable, truly from God. The more I gained in knowledge of Christ and His teaching, the more my life was filled with the spirit of peace and happiness. I understood Christ's atonement in my life and His true power helped me have a change of heart and repent. Christ has given us a way to break out of the chains of sin and be truly free. I rely on His atonement everyday. Now I see the countless blessings in my life. God truly blesses those that are obedient to His commandments. I know that commandments never hold us back but allow us to spiritually progress. The more I obey the easier it is to make good decisions and stay on the path back to God and Christ in the celestial kingdom. How wonderful it will be there. This Gospel is one of self improvement and I love staying positive and trying to become like Christ everyday. I love the modern day prophets and know that God reveals His will to them so we can grow spiritually every day. I know Joseph Smith restored God's power and authority on this earth, that he translated the Book of Mormon and that he was an outstanding man and prophet. I love Christ and know He lives. Because He lives I can live again with my family for eternity in God and Christ's presence. What a blessing :) I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

I love to participate in young mens every week and unite with the fellow young men and young women. I am the first assistant to the Bishop and help lead the fellow priests in my quorum. I visit teach my neighbors with my dad and get to know them. I attend seminary during school and absolutely love it. I attend church every week and love the Spirit there. I listen to a general conference talk every morning and truly feel the power from our general authorities. I strive to become more like Christ every day and follow His example and teachings.
