Hi I'm Nicole Raoch

I am relatable, a hard worker, Missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born into the church and was raised in San Diego California for the better part of my life. When I was 15 my parents separated and I moved halfway across the USA to live in Columbia Missouri. I have lived here for 4 years now and I really love it! I have enjoyed camping, fireworks, and stargazing. during my youth experience I went to camp for 8 consecutive years, got my blessing at 13, I got 2 young women medallions, 2 honor bees, I never missed a stake dance, and graduated seminary a year early. I was a life guard for 3 years, worked in a pizza kitchen, and even worked in sales. Throughout my life I stayed focused on a desire to serve a mission, and I just recently found out I was called the labor in the Utah Salt Lake West Mission starting September 20, 2017.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church, and to be honest, I've always expected there it be some sort of conversion epiphany that I missed because I was raised in the church. As a teenager I learned that I wasn't going to church because my mom was forcing me to, but because I knew that by remaining active and going to church I could former a stronger relationship with my Savior. I knew that he has never abandoned me, and I needed to do everythingI could to return to him.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in my day to day life, I know that I am not perfect and I keep messing up, but I keep trying. I do my best to magnify my callings and I reach out and help those I can. I've taught lessons, conducted the music, lead the choir, played the piano in church, organized young adult activities, and have organized the occasional lunch after church. I don't really see what the difference is, as long as I can keep helping serve others. I'm not afraid of sharing my beliefs with anyone, and I've found my testimony grows as I share it with others.
