Hi I'm Lila Memea Shipman

I am a daughter of Heavenly Father, he loves me and I love him.

About Me

I was married in Western Samoa on June 12, 2004 and sealed in the Tongan temple. I am a mother of 2 children and a wife to a wonderful husband. I was born and raised in Western Samoa. I come from a family of 12 kids and tons of nephews and nieces. I like volleyball, hiking, camping, photography, crafts, Dance and being with my family. I love to visit and fellowship the other sisters in my church.

Why I am a Mormon

 I'm a beloved Daughter of our Heavenly Father and I always believe that. I continue to follow his gospel because I know and I see with my own eyes the blessings I receive every single day of my life and my family. Not only have I seen the blessings inside my own home I also have seen so many blessing others receive. I believe through temple marriage my family can be together forever after this world. I have a strong Testimony about this gospel and I know there is no other church teaching these things about Our Heavenly Father & His son Jesus Christ. I grew up in the church for 27 seven years now and I have never ever gone against my belief or denied the truth about this gospel or denied the holy ghost who helps me, who guides me where I need to be and helps me Choose the right. I teach my kids to do the same thing and continue to follow the footsteps of my savior. I believe the gospel helps us to know our Redeemer Lives and he die for us. He sacrificed his life for us so that we can go back and live with our Heavenly Father. I don’t know what I do without the gospel in my life. I would be out there doing crazy things and out of control. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints means so much to me and my family. I love attending the sacrament every Sunday and renew my covenants with my Heavenly Father. I’m thankful for my savior who died for my sins because he loves me , he knows me and he wants me to come back and live with my Father in heaven. Our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ know what’s inside our hearts and know our needs. Keeping the commandments every day helps me and my family to learn more about the gospel and helps me to serve others with love, to be kind, to be respectful and to be reverent for our savior. I know the scriptures are true and I know if we keep reading the scriptures it helps us to understand more about the gospel and helps us to know about those who have a strong testimony in the church.

How I live my faith

 How I live my Faith? Attend church every Sunday helps me recognized the love of my Heavenly Father for me and my family. It helps me to build my faith in Christ. I have no doubt about faith. Faith is keep growing inside my home and I want my children to recognized that feeling about faith. I have faith, Jesus Christ is my savior. I have faith to pay my tithing to helps others. My faith to have family prayer so we can teach our little kids about Our Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ.
