Hi I'm Nicole Ballstaedt

I was born in Payson Utah but moved to Ohio when I was still very young and grew up there. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am reporting to the Missionary Training Center September 13th 2017. I am serving in the Utah Provo mission. I love to read, sci-fi, fantasy,mystery, and more. I've been playing the piano for 10 years. I took piano lessons for 5 years and any other progress was self taught. I also taught piano from age 6 to age 20. I was born into the church but gained a testimony of my own when I was able. I know The Book of Mormon is true. I know the gospel of Jesus Christ is true and that he was here on earth and spread his gospel and served his father and saved us from permanent death. He loves us all equally and gave his life for us so that we could return to him someday.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church but growing up I was taught that I should gain my own testimony. There were some second hand experiences I had and it showed me how much the gospel has blessed my life and my families. My family, sisters, and my parents love the gospel and love me and support me. They would do anything for me and I would do anything for them. One thing that I love about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is that families can be together forever. It's not till death do we part, it's for time and all eternity.

How I live my faith

Everyday I strive to live the gospel and follow the Lords commandments. The family is essential to the plan of happiness. I love my family and I try to show them that everyday in many different ways. I have lived with 2 of my sisters and I helped them around their house and with their children. There are 4 boys between sisters and with jobs and more they would need my help and I was more than happy to. I loved my sisters and my nephews and loved to play and read with them and help them whenever it was necessary. I go out with the missionaries and share the gospel with other people. I served in my church by working with the children so their parents can listen to the talks and lessons that are given.
