Hi I'm Fia

i grew up in the beautiful island of Samoa. Now living in Arizona. Im a Mormon :)

About Me

i am number eight out of thirteen kids. i was born and raised in the beautiful island of Samoa. i left the island when i was eighteen yrs of age for better school and work opportunities in the united states. i lived in Utah with my two older sisters for about two months and then moved to Arizona for college and stayed with my cousin untill december of last year i got married and moved out. i am now soon to be mom, have a little one on the way,we dont know what brand it is yet and i so can't wait. i like alot of things like dancing and im good at it (hawaiian hula), i like singing even though i dont sound very good haha... i love helping others/service. i love reading books that are inspired and uplifting and i love recording my thoughts of the day in my journal.

Why I am a Mormon

Well, it is the only church that make sense from starts untill now it still is. It has/answers all the questions of the souls, (eg) "where did i come from? Why am i here or do i have a purpose in these life? Where am i going after these life?"etc. i have a great family that loves the lord and we have family prayers almost every night, i remember going to church with my younger siblings and my mom most of the time, but never in my life seen my dad gone to church before. Most of the time we go to church to show our new outfits or just to get away from the house and chores! One day my youngest sister when she was about 4yrs old she asked mom a question that stuck with me until i found the answer. She asked, "mom, what's gonna happen to dad when he dies?" Mom was reading a newspaper and was shocked hearing such a huge question coming from her youngest spoiled baby :) i was atleast 15yrs of age at the time. i was curious of what mom was going to tell her. She said, "I don't know, you go ask him!?!" So she asked dad, dad's respond was " When i die, just roll me with a blanket and throw me in the valley!!" wow, since then that question never left me and it was putting me in a sad situation of crying myself to bed for not knowing what's going to happen to not just my dad only but to all of us. I started to live life as if there was no tomorrow or no purpose, i didn't care or nothing that i did matters to me just as long as im happy. I was 18yrs old when i met with mormon missionaries in utah and they were the ones who gave me answers to all the questions that i had and i remember the moment i heard everything they said,...it was real that it filled the wholes of my heart. i know that our heavenly father loves us, he doesn't want any of us to suffer or cry to bed every night because we don't know what's going to happen to us. He has a great plan for each of us and that is the plan of happiness and you can only find it through the Church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints.

How I live my faith

i continue to increase my faith and testimony of the church by magnifying my callings or responsibities given like, 2yrs ago i was a president for women 18yrs of age and more, i made sure i serve them appropriately in time of need along with the help of other women, i provided activities that continue to help us have unity and strengthen our faith in christ and become as big family of sisters. i had lots of fun with all these ladies. I am currently serving in the youth, girls ages 12-18. This girls are amazing only if they know how much they value in the eyes of God. i've been working and serving them in many ways that helps each girls realize how important they are and that one day they will become great leaders and mothers. Each sunday i prepare a lesson to share with them from church manuals. i love having responsibilities in the church because it sure helps me keep my testimony burning in my heart and desire to share it with others.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon Temples? What goes on in Mormon Temples?

Temple is not secret, it's sacred!! Anyone can go inside the temple and take a tour(open house) before its dedicated as the housse of the Lord. After it's dedicated, only baptized members of the church that are qualified and prepared to enter the temple. -We get married in the temple and we say the words "Throughout time and throughout all eternity" instead of "till death do u part". -We do baptism for those who have died without the opportunity to receive the gospel of jesus christ.(1corinthians15:29, 1peter4:6) -We perform all these ordinances in the temple because they are sacred to us and to the Lord. it is worth the preparation to enter the temple. there is no better place to be than being in the temple and feel Gods presence. It is the cleanest place on earth physically and spiritually. Show more Show less
