Hi I'm JJ

I live in West Sydney, I love anything to do with music, I love laughing, I love chilling and I LOVE being Mormon

About Me

I come from a mixed pacific islander family, my Dad being Fijian and my Mum coming from Samoa and I have one younger brother. Singing and guitar playing is a passion of mine, and using them to chill with friends in a random jam session is always the best! I'm always down to play sports, volleyball, basketball, rugby, whatever! I just love laughing, smiling, joking around and kickin' back having a great time. Truly just love my family, they're the biggest source of inspiration to me on a constant basis because of their example. Right after them is my friends, love my friends to the max cause they're always there! Being surrounded by great people always pushes me to be a better person. But first and foremost is my Heavenly Father. I couldn't be the kind of person I am today without the guidance of Our Father and i'm forever grateful for that. On October 24, 2013 I begin to serve our Heavenly Father in the Papua New Guinea, Port Moresby mission!

Why I am a Mormon

The answer is twofold: 1. I followed the example of Joseph Smith, I prayed and asked if this church was the true church and I received my answer. I've read and enquired and been given testimonies as well as developed my own testimony of this Gospel. This is why I became Mormon. 2.Happiness and Love The simplicity of those two words can never fully capture my overall feelings for this gospel and this church, yet they are the only words I can think of. Being a member makes me happy, happy in the knowledge that I can live with my family forever, happy that my Father in Heaven knows me and knows what I go through, happy that I can have the Holy Spirit as a constant companion, happy that my friends and family will always be beside me aswell as my Father in Heaven watching over me, JUST HAPPY! And because of this happiness, it's love. Love for what Our Father and Jesus Christ have done for us, how they have prepared the way and have prepared a plan for everyone to return, love how they constantly give us opportunities to learn, grow and serve, love how when things aren't going right I can turn to them and feel the peace I need to get through, love how they give us people in our lives who uplift and edify so that we can become better, just love because they always know what I need. This is why I still am a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-day Saints. This is why I still am a Mormon,

How I live my faith

I am a part of the YSA, which stands for Young Single Adults. The people part of this group are people aged between 18-29. I go to church and missionary preparation class every Sunday, I go to Institute classes every Wednesday and try my best to go to all the activities and conferences that get planned. When the chance arises, I get the opportunity to teach in my YSA class or give a talk during sacrament meeting.
