Hi I'm Mary

I was born in the Fiji Islands. I am a wife and a mother, a former Police Officer and Public Bus Driver. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live with my family in the San Francisco Bay Area in Northern California. We are converts and eternally sealed to each other. I have 3 beautiful children - 2 out serving their LDS Missions, and one preparing to go now and a wonderful very hard working husband. And yes, we are from the beautiful Fiji Islands.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in my heart that the Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only true church upon the face of this earth. Before joining the church, I had searched sincerely for a place where I would have that burning sensation in my heart telling me that I am where God wants me to be. I searched in many different churches. None gave me a burning testimony of the Love of God as did the Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints. It is here that I learned about Jesus Christs Atoning sacrifice, that I was baptized fully immersed in water and that I was confirmed a member of the church by Priesthood who laid their hands on my head and blessed me with the Holy Ghost. It is in this church that I know eternal love because I have been sealed to my family for time and all eternity in the temple. It is in this wonderful church that God has opened my eyes and shown me love that I have never experienced anywhere else. God has greatly blessed me and my family for our faith. He has opened our eyes to the truth and he continues to be a strength for my family. I am a Mormon because I have a burning testimony of the truthfulness of this wonderful church. God lives, Jesus is the Christ and the Book Of Mormon contains true words of God. Read it, pray and find out for yourself and I promise and testify to you that if you do, you will get your own revelations testifying to its truthfulness.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to follow Gods Commandments and by trying to serve the needs of others. I live the my faith by loving my neighbour, my enemy, my friends, and family. I live my faith by fulfilling my callings in church and by trying to be an example to others. I live my faith by fulfilling to the best of my abilities my role as a mother, a wife, and as a daughter of God. I also try to live my faith by sharing via the web, through emails and letters to my friends and family, the wonderful gospel of Jesus Christ. Living a righteous life is not easy, but through faith in God, obedience to his commandments, sincere prayer, diligent scripture study and a burning testimony, God will, through his spirit, help sustain and watch over us and help us to endure till the end.
