Hi I'm Simone

I was born and raised in Tahiti-French Polynesia. I am a daughter, a sister, a mother and I am a Mormon.

About Me

Coming from an island, I enjoy spending time outdoors. I love the beach and the ocean. People wonder if I am crazy because I left "paradise" for the desert. I guess love does make one do crazy things! I have a master in social work and enjoy working with the Elderly. The accomplishment I am most proud of is that of motherhood. I am one who could not get pregnant naturally. I spent countless hours, days and years crying and wondering when I would become a mother. My husband and I were opened to adoption but we wanted to try various fertility treatments before resorting to that option. Our wish/dream came true when we welcomed our fraternal twin girls into our family earlier this year. We are so blessed!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in God the Eternal Father, in His son Jesus Christ and in the Holy Ghost. I believe that the Book of Mormon is another Testament of Jesus Christ. I believe that ancient prophets were called of God. I believe that God continues to talk to us through living prophets. I am a Mormon because when I kneel down to pray about what I am taught I receive confirmation that it is true. I am a Mormon because I believe in my divine nature. I believe that as a woman, spouse and mother I can strengthen my family by exercising my faith, by standing for truth and righteousness, by serving others, and by being a witness of God at all times, in all things and in all places.

How I live my faith

Am I perfect? Are Mormons perfect? NO! Our Savior Jesus Christ IS! And we strive to be like Him. I live my faith by serving others and by acting as the Lord would want me to act. I refrain from using foul language, I dress modestly, I refrain from ingesting any substances that would be harmful to my body, I am honest in my dealings with others, and I pray daily. I do all these things not because they are “commandments” but because I have the power to choose who I want to be.
