Hi I'm Malia Foster

I've lived in Las Vegas area my whole life, I am serving in the Idaho Nampa mission, and I am a Mormon!

About Me

I have lived in Nevada my whole life from a little town Boulder City where everyone knows everyone and I love it! Just about 35 min from Las Vegas. I'm the oldest in my family I have 2 brothers and 1 sister and very protective over them! I love my family so much they mean the world to me each and every single one of them! I love music, love to sing, I come from a musical family. I am also a big movie/tv show person, I love going to the movies, having a movie night at home, watching movies and shows with my family and friends, wrestling with my brothers about hogging the blanket or what spot is ours while trying to watch a movie. Love my siblings so much there some of my best friends! Only I can pick on them! I graduated at Boulder City High School in 2010 and started doing photography that I am now in love with, give me a camera and I would be gone the whole day taking all kinds of photos and photo shoots! I love this beautiful crazy world we live in, all the nature around us. The stars, clouds, flowers, rain, makes me appreciate our Heavenly Father even more.

Why I am a Mormon

I love this church and the gospel so much, I would be lost without it! Knowing the true gospel helps me get through the difficult times, the hard trials. I know that heavenly father only gives us trials only that we can overcome, even when we think we can't he knows we can! He knows us better than we know our selves. With faith in him we can overcome and get through anything!

How I live my faith

Their was a time when I lost my faith in this church and in my Heavenly Father. I put my mission papers in, I did all my physicals, dentists check ups, everything. I went to the mail box every day to see if my call came, and every day it wasn't there. It was about 4-5 weeks doing that everyday when the stake president called saying that I have been denied to go on a mission. I had to lose 22 pounds until I could resubmit my papers, he said he's never seen this before. They want me at a certain weight before I go. My weight has always been a touchy subject and for this to be the reason why, I fell apart. I bawled my eyes out and couldn't believe it. I lost my faith, I was thinking I'm willing to serve you and this is the reason why? I was mad at Heavenly Father, the church for awhile, also at myself. But my family was there for me and we all started thinking maybe this is a faith tester? I'm being tested on my faith. Then I came to realize that they were right and it just wasn't my time to go yet. For some reason I may never know but it just wasn't my time. Only Heavenly Father knows whats best for us and does only HIS best for us! He gives us trials only what we can handle. So I made a goal I was going to lose the weight and resubmit my papers. I did just that and even more! Now here I am in the Idaho Nampa mission! This is where I'm supposed to be, this is where I was called to serve by God! That's how I live my faith!
