Hi I'm Maika

I study psychology and human resources. I love sport. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My kids and husband are my priorities in life. We have lived in two different countries and 4 states, but always together. I could probably pass as a professional mover by now. I have a university degree and worked in the financial sector, till I decided to become a full time mother, which has been a fantastic journey. My boys are only young now, but they are a handful and bring great joy. I love their little quirks. I love to learn new things and have begun knitting, gardening and learn to speak Portuguese. Time can always be found to learn more and grow.

Why I am a Mormon

In the rough moments of life when I thought there was no hope, there was only one with me. I felt the Lord's love and his desire to help me and strength me. He led me to reading the Book of Mormon through for the first time. As I started studying the words, I knew it was true. My parents had raised me in the religion, but I had never been sure for myself, nor had I made an effort to be. It wasn't until I was in despair and desperate that I reached out and in that moment the Lord was there. He had not left me. He helped me gain a testimony of Him and His work.

How I live my faith

My favourite scripture has always been my guide. "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding." Proverbs 3:5. I go day by day trying my best to be like Christ and follow any prompting to do good I may have. I know if I am doing all I can the Lord will make up the rest and will guide me to where I need to be.
