Hi I'm Nola

I'm a cosmetologist, married to a wonderful man. We have four great children who are married to wonderful people. I'm a mormon!

About Me

I'm a wife and mother of four children that I adore! In the past year they have all married and we have been blessed to add four more wonderful people to our family. I am the oldest of 7 children and we all live in Utah, which makes it easy to get together. I am a cosmetologist by trade and enjoy all the different people I get to meet through that. I love to travel and see different cultures. The world is such a beautiful place and I'm continually amazed by it. Some of my favorite places in the world are right here in Utah and they are the State and National parks. Hiking is one of my favorite things to do and you can't beat the mountains and parks to hike in. Lake Powell is the one we visit most because boating is our families past time and favorite vacation spot. My main hobby is sewing. I'm not that great at it, but it's fun and relaxing for me. I also love Disneyland and most amusement parks. I can't wait to be a grandma!!!!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into an active LDS family and we attended church regularly. I had strong parents who were good examples to me. In high school, I sometimes questioned the truthfulness of this church, but everytime I did, some experience would happen where I would feel the spirit enough to keep me going. I remember a time after I was married, that we missed church for quite a few weeks in a row. It was almost getting easy to miss, but when we finally went back, I will never forget the warm, peaceful feeling that came over me as I walked into the chapel. After that I knew that living the gospel was what made me feel the happiest and the most peaceful. As I had each of my children, I was grateful for all the support and teachings my children received from going to church and participating in the programs it offers. If there was something I was lacking in as a mother, the church seemed to fill in the gap and help me be better. As my family and I have tried to live the gospel, we truly are happier. Not to many years ago, I had a prayer answered that was so strong, it was undeniable. It was a feeling that I can't quite describe, but I knew for certain it was the Holy Ghost bearing witness to me of the truthfulness of this gospel. I love feeling the spirit and I now try to live so I can feel it often if not always. I know that the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true. I know without a doubt that Heavenly Father and his Son Jesus Christ appeared to Joseph Smith in the Sacred Grove. I also know that the Book of Mormon is a true book that Joseph Smith translated. I know we are led by a living prophet that is called by God to lead us in this day and age. I know there is life after death and that we can be together forever because of the blessings of the temple. I know God and Jesus loves each and everyone of us and knows us individually. I know Jesus is my Savior and he is the only way to eternal life through the Atonement. I love my life.

How I live my faith

I love the way our church is set up and how it gives me opportunities to serve. I think for me, accepting all callings and trying to magnify them has helped me grow the most. I have worked in almost every organization and each one has taught me something important. Right now I serve with the women of our ward and I am so grateful for the love Heavenly Father has allowed me to feel for each and everyone of them. I try to be a good example to my children and others in my ward by attending my meetings and serving others when I can. I have gained a strong testimony of Visiting Teaching and love to visit my fellow sisters. Everyday I ask Heavenly Father to help me be better then the day before and ask to know who needs my help. I love to serve my family the most, and love to see them serve others as well.
