Hi I'm Ana Terewai

I am a Wife. I am a Mother. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a full time Mother to 5 children .I was born and raised in the beautiful country of New Zealand and currently reside in the USA. I have a deep appreciation for my mixed background of Polynesian and German descent. I love my culture and my heritage. I firmly believe that as we come to appreciate and know from where we come from, our history, it provides us with tools of self worth, dignity and empathy. "We know that women who have deep appreciation for the past will be concerned about shaping a righteous future" Spencer W. Kimball. Both of my maternal and paternal Grandparents were faithful missionaries in the country of New Zealand and Tonga for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I come from a large family of 10 siblings from the same parents. My parents have been married for 40 years and counting. 9 of my 10 siblings served a mission. All 7 of my brothers served an honorable mission for the LDS church. We are a strong gospel oriented family with also a love for music. My brothers are known as The Moleni Brothers and share the Gospel throughout the world through Music. I love large families. I strongly believe in the family unit. I am now passing on the same strong family traditions with which I grew up with and incorporating it into my own family. How blessed I am to have had this blueprint of a good, humble family life in which to instill into my own children's life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am grateful to be a Mormon and I continue to raise my children as Mormons because I love how it emphasizes and places an importance on family values. It answers all my questions as to why we are here, what happens after life, and where I am from. I choose to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have a strong background of faithful membership in this church. My personal devotion and dedication to my Savior Jesus Christ and this, His church today, didn't come without prayerful and thoughtful consideration. I come from generations of members, my Grandparents and great Grandparents were some of the pioneers of the church in our native land. I feel such peace, and happiness knowing who I am. To know of my own divine role, that I am a daughter of a loving Heavenly Father. I know this. I know that He cares. I love what I do. What I do isn't headline news but I am grateful it will make a difference in my children's life, being able to stay at home with them. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I know it is true. No doubt in my mind.

How I live my faith

I participate actively in visiting and interacting with other women in my area. I love giving service. It makes me happier to be able to serve others. I love associating and knowing those around me, anyone of any faith. I have worked and volunteered in a variety of ways such as through caring of children to visiting the elderly. I also do my best in raising my children to be able to give service to those around them as well. Whether it be baking cookies for a friend who is sick, or giving of what we have to those who are in greater need. I love how my faith places an emphasis on service, regardless of race, religion, etc., And we do it with no thought of a reward, we do it because we want to.
