Hi I'm Tema Vea

I am from many place since i move many time. but i was born in Hawaii and im a tongan and I am a Mormon!

About Me

I am the youngest out five childeren.i love to sing and to perform polynisian dance. on my free time im a typical single adult hanging with friends and love spending time with families. my families are improtant to me and im gratful for having a wonderful family who is sharing the same blessing that i have which is the gospel. when i see that my family has this gospel in their life i grow a desire to serve a mission someday so that i may share this joyous blessing of this gospel to others. the joy i have because i have the gospel in my life, i would like to share this joy to everyone. but till then i will will expand my study in college.  

Why I am a Mormon

i have been a member my whole life but as a child i was always curios and always wanting to know everything. as i reach my early teens i started to wonder to myself if all of this was true. i would hear my families and friends say "i believe it" and i wanted to say i believe too but did i really? so at the age of 17 i took a challenge upon myself to find out. Through studying, pondering and countless prayers i finally got my answer. i found out that i didn't believe it but I KNOW its true. saying those two words I KNOW has a more meaning then just believing. knowing that my whole life hasn't been a lie but a truthful life and this is why i am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

The simpliest things i do each day is pray, go to church, fulfilling my calling in the church and etc. these things are what i do. At the same time when trials and challenges comes my way they also help me too. i know it may seem like "we would be so much happier without them" but i disagree. without them i would never experience TRUE and ETERNAL happiness. Through the hard times i go through each day, not just once, my faith and my testimony grows stronger. And with the help from the teaching of our Leaders today including our living Prophet today Thomas S. Monson , my life is not perfect but is fill with such love and joy.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

when we search, ponder and pray we show that we have faith to know christ. we go to church to grow our faith and our testimony. we must continue to strive to grow our faith even though we think we are good, yet we can be Great in having faith.  Show more Show less
