Hi I'm Marife

I'm a simple, fun, and Happy Filipina. I'm just me and I AM A MORMON!

About Me

The best thing about me is that I am a Mormon. Being a Mormon tells a lot about me. I've been a member almost all my life. I don't drink, smoke, and even drink coffee. For me having these set standards has help me be more free and enjoy life. Following God's guidelines bring greater blessings to my life. One of the things that motivates me to do what God is expecting of me is to know who I am and who I want to become. When I have to make a choice I always think this quote " Don't trade what you want most from what you want now". I know who I am and I know who I want to become and that makes the big difference. I want eternal life and that's where my decisions are leading me(Even when I fail sometimes I know through God's love I can be forgiven) . I love keeping journal because it reminds me of my struggles and successes. I love collecting books and I wish i could read them one day :)

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because I know that these things are true.The church of Jesus Christ of Latter-days Saints is the only true church of Jesus Christ in the earth. The teachings center to the Savior, all the principles and doctrines goes back to the Garden of Gethsemane when Christ suffered for me and for everyone of us. The gospel makes me happy and I know it will make me happier in this earth life and in the ETERNAL LIFE. I know that by following the commandments and the teachings of the doctrines can bring me ETERNAL HAPPINESS.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to follow the example of Jesus Christ at all times, in all things and in all places. By sacrificing, and concentrating my effort, will and heart to the cause of influencing others in the simplest ways I can. Even just smiling to people I meet on the way. Sending them the glimpse of sunshine I receive from happiness of having the gospel in my life.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Marife
This is the best thing for me, the prophet made it known to us that we can be together with our families. It'll be sad if after this life our family relationship will just go to waste. I know everyone believes that their family can be together forever, but only through the temple that this belief can come to reality. The temple has been a huge importance for the restoration of the gospel because of the saving ordinances that are being perform inside. I know it's possible because it's true. Show more Show less
