This one's for Nicole

So, I’ve been meaning to post this for awhile. But basically, a few weeks ago, my friend Nicole came out to Utah! She was on a road trip, visiting missionary friends and enjoying the sites.

Now, you need to understand just how incredible Nicole is. Nicole was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints just five months ago. And she is on fire. She has the most amazing conversion story. It’s not my place to post her story to the entire world. But let’s just say it’s a beautiful example of how God works so delicately and perfectly in our lives. And I’m honored to have played just a small role in it. My role? Not much. I was just a friend, really. A friend who lived and loved the gospel and was happy to answer questions.

This is us at the Salt Lake Temple. It was so wonderful—a year ago, Nicole was at Temple Square as a tourist . . . now she is able to go inside of the temple! yayayayayayayay.

It was great having her with us. I feel badly that she had to put up with my family's overall craziness. But I did warn her, “You’ve heard of My Big, Fat, Greek Wedding? Well, this will be My Big, Fat, Mormon Family Reunion.” But seriously. Thanks for putting up with us, Nicole! We love you! Come back soon. J
