Hi I'm Shakiyla

Grew up in Berkeley, Love everyone in my life, puts God 1st before anything, testimony solid as a rock

About Me

hmmmmm, let's see here, I'm 20 years old, I'm very single (*hint hint* lol), I'm the oldest of 2 kids and a step sister, I'm in my junior year of college majoring in journalism, i play volleyball and rugby and i attend Oak Grove 1st YSA branch at the Oakland Temple!! I'm just your normal mixed chick who's quiet at times, but very trustworthy and dependable,always look at the brighter/positive things in life, probably the most nicest/sarcastic gal you'll ever meet =) sooo if you wanna get to know me a little bit better just hit me up on my facebook or twitter (im on there 24/7...sad isnt it? haha!) Did i mention my favorite scripture is Ether 12:27? lol

Why I am a Mormon

I chose to be a member of the church because Ive been through so much in my life, i needed to be closer to heavenly father during hard times. the lessons that i learn each and the chance to renew my covenants with God during sacrament every sunday, is the opportunity to become a better person and to continue to make my testimony stronger than it was before. Since becoming and being the only member of my family in the church, ive seen a whole lot of peaceful days to the point where it hurts to smile because im soo happy! the greatest blessing Ive received since i got baptized was the blessing of inner peace within my self, and spiritually stronger than ever, i never been so excited to talk to people about the love i have Heavenly Father , and to know that families CAN and will be together forever! I testify that the Siasi O' Sisu Kalaisi 'O E Kau Ma'oni'oni 'I He Ngaahi 'Aho Kimui Ni was the missing puzzle piece to finish the puzzle i call my life, i know that this church is true, i know god lives and loves each and every one of us, i love everyone (even you who's reading my profile lol) and i say these things humbly in the name of thy son Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

I'm apart of the activity committee at my branch, so i help out with the organization of dances,picnics,sight seeing, a whole bunch of stuff!

In whom should we have faith?

we should have faith in our savior, our redeemer Jesus Christ and Our father in heaven. Keep God 1st always!! and more importantly have faith in yourself! there will be times of trouble to where your faith will indeed be tested, but always remember the faith heavenly father has in you, and the faith you have within yourself to get through those times and i promise and testify to you that you'll become a stronger person than you were before... Mentally and Spiritually =) Show more Show less
