Hi I'm Nick Bauer

I am from Katy Texas. I will study at Brigham Young University after I return from my mission to Madagascar. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

A little about me. I am 18 and a senior in high school. I played football for the school, but also played other sports in my free time. I love being outdoors and hiking, biking, camping, and all things outside. I have two older sisters who have husbands and we love doing things as a family. I love to read any book I can lay my hands on. I have been called to serve a two year mission in the Antananarivo Madagascar mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I felt and then gained a knowledge that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true. I was raised as a member of the church and through the examples of great men and woman, with the greatest among them being my parents, scripture study, and sincere prayer I have gained a testimony that I can not deny. I know the Gospel is true. I know that through the Atonement and Resurrection of our Savior Jesus Christ we can be saved and go to live with our loving Heavenly Father. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and that he helped restore the true and everlasting gospel back onto the earth. Through the power of God, he translated and brought forth the Book of Mormon, another testament of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I have attended early morning scripture study for all four years of high school. I have been enabled to care for and watch over loving families as a friend. I've enjoyed the many service opportunities that come through the church, school groups, and people in the community. I have served in a youth leadership role as a member of youth activity committees. I try to be as helpful and friendly as I can be so people know that they have a person that cares for them. I read and pray regularly and try to incorporate the teachings of Jesus Christ and his prophets into my life so that I may draw nearer unto him.
