Hi I'm Elizabeth Mailau

Born in the friendly islands of Tonga. Born of goodly parents. Born a Mailau. Born a Mormon.

About Me

Currently "I am a disciple of Jesus Christ, the Son of God..." (3 Nephi 5:13) I am the second of seven beautiful siblings. I am shamelessly intimidating, graciously clumsy, and intensely reserved. I love singing, learning, exploring, etc. As a Tongan I am very family-oriented, a Lamanite trait passed down from long ago. And our women are still valued like no other culture I know. I am a very proud Tongan. Most specifically I am a very proud Mailau. I was raised in a gypsy home, never settling and ever searching for the promised land. I was raised a fighter, leader, thinker, and hardworker. Mum and dad are champions.

Why I am a Mormon

I was always getting into trouble growing up. But you wouldn't think so when you saw me sitting at church learning about Jesus Christ. I have always loved the Spirit I felt from being at church. I went to other churches and their bible study classes, etc. A child of God, even as troublesome as I was, can feel the power of the Holy Ghost. I knew at a young age this church was true. At seventeen I finally decided to read the Book of Mormon. I picked it up and could not put it down. By the time I finished, by the power of the Holy Ghost I simply knew the Book of Mormon is true. Trials come and go and I am still a Mormon because the Holy Ghost testified of these truths and I cannot deny it.

How I live my faith

I think of the song the children sing when I think of how I live my faith: If you don't walk as most people do Some people walk away from you But I won't. I won't. If you don't talk as most people do Some people talk and laugh at you But I won't. I won't. Something to that extent anyway.
