Hi I'm Tilisa

I grew up in the Islands of Tonga, I am a mother of 4 children. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love to read, write and talk with my children. Music is a big part of my family. We all love to sing! I am married to my best friend who I love and adore. We have been blessed with 4 beautiful children, who keep us on our feet. I am currently attending college in the medical field. I love to help people and have always had a life long dream of being a nurse.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church. My father was a convert to the church and is my role model. My Mother grew up in the church, both her parents are strong active members. I believe with all my heart that this church, that was restored by the prophet Joseph Smith is the true church of God. I have seen so many miracles in my life that would never make me deny the truthfulness of this gospel. I am eternally grateful for the Savior and his atonement that will enable me to return and live with my Heavenly Father again.

How I live my faith

I try and be the best example to my children, family, neighbors and friends. I currently teach primary, which is a program for children to attend every Sunday. We sing songs, and teach these children basic principles of the gospel for them to follow in their daily lives. I always tell my children that we must always " practice what we preach". And part of this is family prayer, scripture study and choosing to good at all times. Once a month I go visiting teaching with another female member of the ward. We are assigned either one or two members of the ward to visit. This I love to do, because we get to mingle with other mothers and we share a brief message to remind us to live righteously according to the teachings of the prophets and Savior.

What is a ward/stake/branch?

A ward, consist of 200 members who are assigned, depending on the boundary they live to attend every Sunday. We have big and small families, young and old ( elderly). We also have single adults that can also be a part of the ward. A branch would be smaller than a ward, but can eventually grow into a ward. Both ward and branch are under a stake. There are 6-8 wards in one stake. Show more Show less
