Hi I'm Malia

I'm from Idaho and am currently serving in the Thailand Bangkok Mission. I love learning, reading, music, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I have a wonderful family, and I am the middle of two sisters (my best friends!). I am currently putting my college education at Brigham Young University (majoring in microbiology or public heath) on hold to go and serve a mission in the Thailand Bangkok mission for 18 months. I love learning, reading, playing the piano, and occasionally going rock climbing. Above all, I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It has blessed my life so incredibly much.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because the gospel of Jesus Christ helps me improve and grow every day. The standards and beliefs I have keep me happy and safe. I know for myself that God is my father, and I know that it is a privilege to have that knowledge. It is a privilege to know that I have a Savior, an older brother, who loves me and sacrificed for me. It is only through His grace and His mercy that I can be saved. I know that Joseph Smith prayed and had faith that Heavenly Father would hear and answer his prayer. I love the scriptures and testify that the Book of Mormon is the most true book on the earth, and that I am blessed to have the word of God in my life. I know my family can be together forever because of the restored priesthood and the blessings of the temple. I know these things for myself, and this knowledge blesses my life every single day. These things bring me joy. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reading my scriptures and praying every day, and by always trying to be a good example of living high standards. I will live my faith for the next 18 months by sharing the Gospel with and serving my brothers and sisters in Thailand. My Savior is the greatest example to me, and I live the way I live to try to be more like Him and love others like He loves them.
