Hi I'm Marieta Ratuvukivuki

I was born and raised in the Beautiful Islands of Fiji, love playing any kind of Sports and i am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the church but never really knew it was true. i went to church because it was something my Family expected me to do, and I loved the friends I made at church. I always wanted to be Missionary, so i promised myself that this was something i would do and i'd do whatever it took to be able to accomplish that goal i had as a kid. As i got older i strayed from the path a little but i always remembered the goal i had made when i was younger, and so one night i just said to myself i want to change my life and do something constructive with it and the GOAL popped right back to my mind. So i took the proper steps to be able to become a Missionary. I was Challenged to read the Book Of Mormon and honestly reading was something i never really enjoyed and i didn't know how i would do it, but i took up the challenge. I mean it wouldn't hurt to try right? so i read expecting that i would instantly get an answer, but i was wrong. it required more effort and patience, days turned into weeks and weeks turned into months. One night said i am going to read tonight and i'm going to get my answer tonight. So after reading i told God if i don't get an answer by tonight, that I would stop going to church. My prayer that night was the most heartfelt prayer i've ever said. I got the most amazing feeling, and because of that experience i can say that it is true and always has been and will be true.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon is the best thing that i have ever decided to do, even though people say so much bad things about the church it does not hurt me abit because Heavenly Father has shown me that this is the most correct way back to him. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored and it is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, it has blessed my life and my family's life, because of this gospel i as a member of he church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints can say that i am the most happiest person alive not because my life is easier and it definitely is not even easier, but because i know my purpose here on the earth and i also know that i can live with my family again in the next life because of priesthood keys that has been restored and is only found in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love my family too much to have my relationship, love and Bond with them end after death.

How I live my faith

Well living my faith was something i had a problem with, and the good thing about it is that i realized that what i have been doing was bad and i changed it. People still accepted me not because i changed but because they saw me as a daughter of our Father in Heaven. I experimented the gospel and saw how much happier i was as i lived the principles and teachings of the church, it definitely was a challenge but i loved the way it would make me feel about myself and about life in general.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Marieta Ratuvukivuki
Joseph Smith was a prophet called by God to restore the church of Jesus Christ back to the earth again, Growing up he was very much into the subject of Religion and at a young age was so much concerned about his salvation and began to search for truth. He read from James 1:5 and so he knew that he needed to do exactly what James directed in this verse and that is to ask God when we lacked wisdom, what happend after that was an incredible experience and one that changed the world, today we have the fulness of Christs church restored back to the earth thorugh this boy prophet.
