Hi I'm Naomi

I'm from New Zealand. I work at a Pharmacy, happily married and i'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a wife, and mother to 2 children. I am pharmacy technician and really love my job. some of my interests include spending time with family, going to the movies, sports. I love going on holiday and going to the beach with family and friends. I served a mission for the church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints in Colorado U.S.A and it was one the best experiences of my life as well as getting married in the L.D.S temple to my husband and the births of my daughter and son.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I was bought up in the this Church, When I was 17 years old I wanted to find out for myself if this was the true Church, I needed to know for myself because I didn't wan't to invest my life into something that wasn't true. I read the entire Book Of Mormon and in Moroni 10:4 he says " And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost. " As I reading the Book Of Mormon I Had a continual prayer in my heart asking if what I was reading was not true, and as I was reading this book an overwhelmingly feeling came over me and in my heart that what I was reading was true and I wasn't wasting my time, I finally had an answer to my question and I could finally tell people without a shadow of a doubt that the Book of Mormon is true. Even though is wasn't a great manifestation where the heavens opened and all that, it was a quiet and peaceful moment in my life that I will never forget. 1 year later I had a very strong impression to go on mission and to teach those who were also wanting answers to life's big questions, "where did we come from, why are we here and where are we going?" This gospel answers all of these questions and much more. I love this Church and because of it I have the opportunity to be with my family forever not just in this life but the life to come and am forever grateful for that and for Jesus Christ dying for us so that is possible. I love my family and This Gospel in the name of Jesus Christ Amen

How I live my faith

I live my Faith by doing my calling, I am a teacher in my ward, I teach in the third hour when the men and women split up and I teach the women. I really enjoy it, I learn so much from doing this calling and love to teach. With my family we try to have family home evening once a week, it may not happen every week due to our schedule but it's really great when we do have it, it really makes a difference in our home in a positive way. Scripture study and daily prayer are also very important as being in contact with our Heavenly Father on a daily basis makes my life so much easier even in times of trials relying on him and made the burden so much lighter. Also by abstaining from Alcohol, smoking, tea, coffee and addictive substances I am a physically and mentally healthy person and because of that I can feel the spirit of God so much more strongly in my life, which is really important to me and my family.
