Hi I'm Nicole

I'm a military child so I grew up all over the world. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I attended two semesters at Brigham Young University-Hawaii last year. I'm an English Education major. I like singing and playing the ukulele. I also like to write poems and short stories, but I hardly ever share them with people because I like to keep them to myself. When I visit home, I love cooking with my mom, watching TV with my dad, and hanging out with my younger brother.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a member of the church my whole life, but when I started going to BYUH, I was out of the house and wasn't sure if the church was really for me. I started drifting away because I stopped reading the scriptures and really caring about church and those were dark times for me. Being a military child, I was frustrated that I grew up everywhere and that I was in Hawaii only because my family was stationed there. I didn't like Hawaii and I started feeling depressed and unmotivated. However, my roommate kept trying to bring me to church. She pushed me to read my scriptures and always shared her testimony with me. Once I started going to church and reading the scriptures because I wanted to, I knew staying a faithful member of the church was the right thing. I know being a member has shaped my life and brought me the most happiness. I know the gospel is true, that the Savior lives and that the Atonement is a real gift we can use to mend our broken lives. The Lord is looking for us, and if we just reach out to Him, we will undoubtedly find Him. I've seen that throughout my own life and I know these things to be true. I say that in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

When I was in high school, I helped out with family history in my ward. My calling was to be the youth family history representative. My favorite calling so far though has been teaching the little children in primary. I had that calling for a few months after attending BYUH and I loved it. The kids have such pure hearts and such faith. They are exemplary even though they're only four and five years old.
