Hi I'm Malia

I'm a CPA, turned full time stay-at-home Mom. I love the beach but live in a wheat field. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a wife and mother, with two young children. I grew up in Hawaii and miss the beach, the sun, and the food. I'm addicted to ice cream - especially creamery ice cream. My husband and I built our first two homes by ourselves while working full time. We fought our way out of consumer debt, and now encourage others to do the same. I was a diligent student, earning a Master's degree in accounting at the age of 21. At age 26, I was an executive at a public company's subsidiary, but gave it all up to stay at home with my first child. I love being a stay at home Mom.  

Why I am a Mormon

Although I grew up in the Mormon church, I've tested it's principles over and over. I've prayed to know for myself, and received an answer that the full gospel of Jesus Christ is taught in and by this church. Everything from paying an honest tithe, to being with my family forever, rings true in my heart and mind. And as I continue to follow God's teachings, I am blessed.

How I live my faith

I meet with families and individuals within the Mormon church to help them obtain work, or to help them organize their finances. We believe that in order to fully focus on the spiritual, and to best be able to serve others, our lives should be in order temporally. We believe that people need help with physical needs as much as they need help with spiritual needs. I enjoy seeing people's needs met, and in a small way, being able to help them.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Malia
We believe that the ultimate goal for this life and eternity is a man and woman who are married and committed to each other. We also believe that children are an heritage of the Lord. And tying all of this together, that we can be together forever as families. Show more Show less

Why is self-reliance important to Mormons? Why do Mormons talk about emergency preparedness?

Malia
We believe that we should use what God has given us to provide for ourselves insofar as we are able. Also that we should be wise stewards of what we have. This includes our money, our time, our talents, and our possessions. Self-reliance isnt just about food storage, it encompasses education, finances, careers, health, and emergency preparedness. Since emergencies, both personal and wide-spread, are relatively common in the world, and since our prophets have advised us to, we prepare for emergencies. We store food, water, clothing, and other items for future needs. We maintain our health. We get out of debt and save for emergencies. Show more Show less
