Hi I'm Nicholas Robert Elmer

I´m a mormon and I LOVE IT!!!

About Me

My name is Nick Elmer. As one of my good friends always says to me ¨You´re the most mormon dude I know.¨ I love this church, this doctrine, and everything MORMON. I was born into the church and My parents are probably the best parents in the entire world. And i love following their example so much that I´m serving a mission same as them in the coolest country ever, HONDURAS!!!! Where one is able to eat the most heavenly food ever created, Balleadas. I love trying new things and doing a little bit of everything. Adventuring in the mountains, playing sports, attempting to play musical instruments, learnig new things, reading, and basically anything as long as it isn´t shopping. But out of all my top 3 skills are eating, sleeping, and blowing bubbles.

Why I am a Mormon

I´m not a mormon cause that what my parents taught me, I´m not a mormon because I´m from Utah. I´m a mormon because I have read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it with little faith that I have. God doesn´t require more that what you got. And he has revealed to me the truth through the Holy Ghost and I know that it is the word of God. My answer didn´t come in a wrapped up box, a dream, an angel didn´t come down from heaven, really nothing that special happened. I just started reading and I felt a joy, a happiness, a peace, every good feeling in the world you can feel can be felt reading the Book of Mormon. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and my Redeemer. That God truly does love me. All thanks to the Book of Mormon. I took me a lot of years to truly find this testamony, but now I have it, and you can find your´s too. Just open up the Book of Mormon. It´s simple.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving a full time mission. And doing my best to complete with the Lord´s commandment to always preach his gospel. The reason for which I do it is found in the scriptures in Mosiah 2 : 23-24 23 And now, in the first place, he hath created you, and granted unto you your lives, for which ye are indebted unto him. 24 And secondly, he doth require that ye should do as he hath commanded you; for which if ye do, he doth immediately bless you; and therefore he hath paid you. And ye are still indebted unto him, and are, and will be, forever and ever; therefore, of what have ye to boast? God has given us so much, and he keeps giving more. We owe everything we have to him and so we have to give it back. He doesn´t require much, just your best. I live my faith by giving my best to god and even though it might not be as much as other people it´s MY BEST and that all I can do. And I know that god will bless me for all that I do.

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

Nicholas Robert Elmer
We believe that God is litterally our Father, a real person, with a real body. We Believe that God´s favorite name is Heavenly Father, because just like every good father he loves his children, but as a perfect being it is a perfect love. We believe that the purpose of his life is to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man. Immortality is live forever, and congratulations! You already got it. But eternal life is a little bit more difficult. It is to live the life that our heavenly father lives. We believe that God loves us so much that he wants to give us everything he has. And it takes some work. So Let´s get do work. Like Nike always says, ¨just do it¨ Show more Show less

Who chooses the Mormon prophet?

Nicholas Robert Elmer
Jesus Christ chooses our prohpet, not a man, not a computer program. If a man or anything else chose our prophet we would be in big trouble. But this church is the only church on the earth where our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ leads us through his chosen servent the Prophet. Show more Show less
