Hi I'm Sally

I grew up on the Fiji Islands and was fifteen when my parents decided to bring us to the US. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mom, wife and a Mormon. My family and I am a recent convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Our oldest daughter was given the Book of Mormon as a Christmas gift by her friend. She began to get interested in the church and her friend’s family took her in and shared the marvelous work on the Gospel. When we saw great results in our daughter, my husband and I decided to find out what was so great about this church that has made our daughter so happy. The family who had been teaching our daughter the gospel and taking her to church happily helped us find the truth. This family shared all they knew and had in their home with us. I was invited to the young women’s conference broadcast and the experience was remarkable that day. I was very touched by the young women’s conference talks that I decided that I wanted to learn more about this church. I felt like I was being prepared for the day I learned about the truth. We were invited to the General Conference (May 2011) broadcast, where we met very kind and caring people. We were very touched by the Spirit that day so every single member of our family decided to come to the sacrament meeting the following Sunday. Since than we have been attending the church on Sundays, got baptized and received the most precious gift of all, “the gift of the Holy Ghost.” We want the world to know that being a Mormon is the best thing that ever happened to us.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have prayed about the truthfullness of the Book of Mormon. My testimony of this church is: I know the Book of Mormon is true through my personal answer from Heavenly Father. I know that the Prophet Joseph Smith was a chosen man of God who restored the true church of Christ on earth. I believe in our living Prophet, President Thomas S. Monson and that he receives revelation for us in these days from our Father in Heaven. I know that if I follow God’s commandments and be righteous that I will be blessed with happiness for eternity. I testify of all these things is true in the name of our Savior Jesus Christ’s, Amen.

How I live my faith

Being faithful in the church and repenting of my sins is how I know I am free from my past transgressions. Knowing that the atonement of Christ washed my sins away before I was born it makes me feel loved and free. I go to church on Sundays, I repent of my sins weekly, and I try my best to keep God's commandments. I know I am not perfect but I try my best to be Christ like in my thoughts and actions. I love the missionaries because they are selfless God’s people who are spreading the teachings of the gospel as instructed by our Father in Heaven.
