Hi I'm Haunani

I'm a mom and a wife. I'm Hawaiian. I live in Texas. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a stay-at-home mom to four amazing kids. Our life is sometimes crazy, but totally worth it! I thoroughly enjoy making my home a place that they want to be. I love music, art, the beach, food, books, and PEOPLE!

Why I am a Mormon

I didn't grow up in this church, but my parents taught me basic principles that I later built upon when I met the missionaries. I joined the church because it was clear and direct. It answered questions that I had and filled in the blanks for me. I have a testimony of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon and the blessings that are poured out upon us as we follow the principals contained within it. I love the hope and direction that the gospel provides for me and my family. I am grateful everyday for the decision I made to join this church.

How I live my faith

I have had experiences in my life that have taught me to rely on my Heavenly Father. I have received the greatest blessings when I stay close to Him and listen carefully to the counsel I receive through prayer. I live my faith by trying to find joy in each day and remembering the many blessings that I've been given.

What are some things that tell to you there is a God?

It is impossible to look at the abundance and beauty that surrounds me and not acknowledge God's presence. He is responsible for every blessing that I have been given and I am grateful on a daily basis for the knowledge that I have of that. Show more Show less

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

I love the Savior. I have a testimony that there is no other way that we can attain our greatest potential and joy than through his atoning sacrifice for us. I know that He died for our sins and that His life was the greatest gift our Heavenly Father has given us. Through Him, miracles are possible, changes can occur, and our weaknesses can be turned into strengths. Show more Show less

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

After baptism, we are confirmed as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and we receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. After that, as long as we are living worthily and obeying the commandments, we are entitled to the constant companionship of the Spirit of the Lord which provides direction, guidance, and personal revelation. There are countless blessings we receive when we learn to listen to the Spirit, and act on those promptings. I have a testimony that we have a loving Heavenly Father who has a vested interest in our personal and spiritual well-being. The Holy Ghost provides a way for him to communicate directly to us on a continual basis. He wants us to return to live with him and through the Holy Ghost, He will provide the specific details we need in order to do that. Show more Show less
