Hi I'm Nicole Snell

Im a wife, a mother, a student, and a runner. Im a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in upstate New York where I developed the love of fall colors and a good cup of chocolate. In 2009 I made the best decision ever and married the love of my life. We have since been blessed with an amazing little boy. He continues to amaze me with how quickly he learns and grows. I'm in the process of starting school again where I hope to learn how to be a great nurse. I love learning and enjoy figuring new things out. In my spare time I love to spend time my husband and family. We love taking our son for a run. And we especially like to cook together. We love to try new foods and then share them with others. I have a deep love for children and have found that they can teach us so much.

Why I am a Mormon

I love this Gospel. It continues to make me a better person. It gives me hope, direction and comfort when twists and turns disrupt my life. I know that my Savior loves me. Not only did he die for me but he took my mistakes upon himself and he makes me clean again. He knows and has experienced any sorrows that I feel and will always be waiting to comfort and help me if I give him a chance. Through Christ I know that I can be with my loved ones again. I can be with my family forever.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being a good mother and wife. I try to make my home a place of peace so that those who enter our home feel safe. I try to read the Scriptures (the Bible and the Book of Mormon) often. I try to treat others the way I would hope to be treated. I try to follow Christ's example and try to serve those around me. I know I'm not perfect so I rely on my Savoir to help me change and become better.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Nicole Snell
There are many ways we can come to know our Heavenly Father. One of the best ways to get to know someone is by talking to them and having a conversation with them. If I wanted to get to know a new neighbor I would ask them questions and tell them about myself, I might even tell them things that I am going through at the moment. Just like a neighbor you can talk to your Heavenly Father. We can pray to our Father in Heaven and he will listen. In fact he is the best listener EVER! We can talk to him about anything. He knows us each personally and wants us to know him as well. He will and wants to reassure us and he will and wants to answer our prayers. I have found that as I pray often I feel closer to my Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
