Hi I'm Malia.

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My life revolves around photography and the fashion industry. I have a new-found interest in theatre, and have always done well in artistic/creative situations. Musical talent is a gift that I don't naturally possess, but I've been working to become a better pianist and ukulele player. If you step into ward choir practice, I'll be there, alongside my best friend of 6 years who encourages me to be a better member of the church and a better person as a whole.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and chose to be baptized when I was 8 years old. I have decided to continue my life under the direction of the church after realizing for myself of its truth and importance in achieving eternal happiness.

How I live my faith

Attending church and seminary have only helped strengthen my testimony, and continue to help me build strong friendships with others who share my same values and standards. Mutual has also helped me become closer with my ward youth group. I continue to learn and be impressed by the faith of other teenage members around me, and am grateful for their positive influence on my life.

What is the Church’s position on abortion?

Malia.
On the topic of "Pro-life" versus "Pro-choice," Latter-Day Saints generally agree that the taking of another's life in any way is deemed wrong. Every spirit should have the opportunity to receive a mortal body, and be able to develop and create a life in this world. Addressing "Pro-choice": the 'choice' was made when intercourse was performed, and therefore the consequences must be accounted for. Every decision in this life comes with a consequence, whether positive or negative. However, there are certain circumstances where abortion may seem like the "favorable" option, such as a pregnancy due to rape, in which the mother was given no choice to her situation. Such instances are to be decided by the mother, and vary depending on circumstance. Show more Show less
