Hi I'm Mailea

I'm a musician, actress, learner, missionary, and friend. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love musical theater and enjoy performing with my family. I am a student at Utah Valley University studying American Sign Language and this beloved gospel. I enjoy hiking, biking, singing, sculpting, and eating ice cream. I mostly enjoy laughing and finding joy in all around me. I have my call to serve as a missionary in January 2016 in the Idaho Twin Falls Mission!

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a Mormon because I find so much peace in living the simple principles we are taught. This faith brings tender happiness that I don't find any other way. I love this gospel because I know God, my Heavenly Father, is with me and strengthens me wherever I go and I can feel Him and His Son, Jesus Christ with me when I obey and spread the happiness of the gospel. I can have that happy spirit with me wherever I go. I stay a Mormon because I'm happy even when there's something to be sad about.

How I live my faith

I am a called leader in the youth program. I serve the girls my age in my ward and am also currently called as a Girls Camp leader. I am helping plan and prepare for a week of fun camping and spiritual activities for hundreds of teenage girls living around me.

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a Mormon is the same as being joyful. All the day long is filled with the joy of serving others. I follow commandments and teachings of the prophets and called teachers of the Lord. Being a mormon means focusing on family. Being a mormon means you have such a love for obeying the Lord and find a new freedom in it rather than restricted. Being a Mormon means I feel so happy to have a testimony of my own through my experiences of the truths of the gospel. Being a Mormon means I feel like all must know of their infinite worth and love all I meet. Show more Show less
