Hi I'm Nikoal

I'm a Mormon; I grew up in Washington State.

About Me

I am just your normal average girl. I love to play basketball, and i have been playing that sport ever since 5th grade. I also love animals and kids my whole life. I have always wanted to become a vet, but i know that wouldn't exactly be what I want. So instead i have pursued a career helping children with disabilities and pursue it with a minor in Spanish. I am currently in college and a freshman this year. I have a family of eight and i am the oldest of 6 kids. I was adopted when I was six days old. I am still single but loving college life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon not because i was forced into this religion or because other people make decisions for me, but because I choose to be Mormon. I have a testimony that this gospel is true and that I belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have grown up in this church my whole life. I must tell you though that at one point in my life i started falling away from this church little by little. I wasn't sure if this truly was the true church or not, so i decided to do things my own way. I was a bit rebellious and did things the way i thought things should be done. To be honest with you I thought that I was happy at that time. Than I realized that this was all temporary, and I was but than there really was a part of me that wasn't truly happy. I was starting to loose my true friends who would be there for me whenever I needed help, and I was falling away from my family. The more I thought the things that were "good for me" when they truly weren't the more quarrels I was having with my parents. I knew I didn't like this life. This Gospel is the truth!!!! I know that with all of my heart and never will I fall astray from this church again. The Book of Mormon is a true Testament of our prophets, our Savior Jesus Christ. I also know that Joseph Smith is the man who translated the Book of Mormon not out of his own words but received helped from our Lord to translate them and help end the apostacy that was currently here on earth. I also know that our current prophet, President Thomas S. Monson is the true and current revelator of our church right now. I am so grateful for this church, and having the opportunity in growing up in it. I know that I truly would be lost and live and unhappy life if it wasn't for this church. The little things truly do matter, by reading the Book of Mormon daily and saying prayers daily, will help and make a big difference in your life. I know this church is true and i would like to say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I have been going to church every single sunday and have been worthy to partake of the sacrament. Whenever I am given the opportunity for the most part I will go and help and do that service. I love helping with other people in any ways that i possibly can. If friends ever have questions I will always do my best to help them find those answers which they currently have on there mind.
