Hi I'm Maija

I'm Finnish, I love to have fun and you can hear my laugh from miles away. Soon I will be a missionary in Brazil. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from Finland. I have two sisters and a brother and they are my best friends. I love learning about new cultures and languages. I'm always ready for an adventure. I love music and it's been a big part of my life since I was little.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of this church since I was a child. This gospel has always been important to my family and I've learned to love it and gained testimony of it little by little, one step at a time. I have felt God's love for me so strong and so many times. As I have read the Book of Mormon I've learned that it truly is word of God. I can feel it every time I read the book. The reason why love this gospel so much is that it gives me so much strength and comfort when I face trials and hardships. It's an incredible feeling to know that when you feel like you are in your lowest you never ever have to suffer alone because of our Savior Jesus Christ. God's plan for His children is perfect.

How I live my faith

Every week I teach Sunday school for the youth. It gives me so much joy to help them learn more about our Heavenly Father and His love for us. I will soon leave for Brazil to be a missionary of my church. I will spend the next 18 months there and help people to come unto Christ by telling them about my beliefs and sharing my thoughts and feelings. I try to be kind to everyone and serve others whenever possible. I hope that my friends will remember me as someone who was always ready to help when someone needed that.
