Hi I'm Aaron Kauhimakakuokalani Auna

I live in Hawaii, love competitive sports, buy things for a living, a Bishop, and family man. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy a good game of table tennis, chess, basketball, volleyball, and soccer. I read leadership, management, and motivational books as a hobby. I go hiking with my family. My favorite shows are 24, Bones, Blue Bloods, and West Wing. I worked for a United States Senator. Received a MBA. I am training to run a 10k.

Why I am a Mormon

As I follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, I am filled with happiness and optimism for the future. The gospel has help me focus on what matters most - family, friends, people. Our Heavenly Father and His Beloved Son, Jesus Christ, know and love us personally. They want the best for us and hear our pleads and prayers. Jesus Christ lived and died for us. He made it possible for us to return to live with God and our Families forever. The church that existed during Jesus Christ's time was restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith. We have living prophets today who speak the mind and will of God. We can each know for ourselves God's will for us. He will not leave us totally alone.

How I live my faith

I have an opportunity to work with members of our congregation to reach out to the needs of others - providing a listening ear, painting homes, providing a good meal, encouraging individuals and families going through hard times, visiting the sick and afflicted.
