Hi I'm Maili

I moved more than nine times before I graduated high school. I love music and Italian food. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in Utah, New York City, New Jersey, Maryland, Arizona, and now Texas, due to my fathers job as an attorney. I have a deep love for my family, music, and God. I love to sing, play the violin, and mess around with the piano. All through high school I took both choir and orchestra. From seventh grade till my junior year in high school I took harp lessons as well. During my senior year of high school my family moved to Texas, but I stayed behind in Arizona to finish up high school. I was able to live with my best friend and her family until I graduated. It was great experience that taught me a lot about others, myself, and life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because of the happiness and peace this church has brought into my life. It has filled me with knowledge and wisdom that has helped me through the hardest times of my life. I have also prayed earnestly to know if the things taught within this church are true, and received answers to my prayers repeatedly. I can not deny or forget what I know to be true, so I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I help plan activities for young single adults to participate in. Every week we will plan something fun to do (like go to the lake, have a barbecue, play volleyball, a ping pong tournament, etc.) then share some of our thoughts about God and our beliefs in Him. These activities help those who come improve they're social skills and meet other people in the community who may be in similar situations as them, I will also be serving a mission in Milan, Italy to teach those who want to know more about Jesus Christ and His plan for us.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

You can come to know Him as you study the words of His prophets, pray earnestly to Him, and strive to keep His commandments. As I have done those things I have felt myself being drawn closer to Him and His spirit. Show more Show less
