Hi I'm Lana
I'm a flower delivery girl who is passionate about learning. I love the scents of gardenias & the ocean, and I'm a Mormon.
I have a wonderful family whom I cherish and thank God for every single day. I can always count on my parents and three older brothers for advice, some pretty good laughs, and spontaneous dance parties in the kitchen. I am currently a senior at an all-girls Catholic high school where makeup and groomed hair are unfamiliar and atypical. My job is to deliver flower bouquets and my favorite part is always seeing the faces of surprised and touched recipients. I love to share my Polynesian culture by dancing hula for special events and bringing the spirit of aloha to the east coast, where I was born and raised. I love to learn new words, and a pet peeve of mine is misspelled words. I love to press flowers, write down inspiring quotes, and journal on unlined paper. Life has given me marvelous opportunities to serve, meet incredible people, and love what every day has to offer.
Why I am a Mormon
Even though I was born as a Latter-Day Saint, I have realized that I become more and more converted every single day. My love for my Savior can only increase as I recognize the blessings He has given me, including the trials that have been placed in my life. Knowing that I will be with my family for eternity gives me only a slight perspective of the wonderful things to come and for that I am forever grateful.
How I live my faith
Because we were made in the likeness and image of God, we also carry within us His light when we are brought into this life. The best way I can live my faith is to expose His magnificent light within me and to see this light within others. I do my best to fulfill this through my interactions and thoughts of others, though I often fall short. Through my struggles, however, I can come closer to my Lord Jesus Christ by bearing another's burdens, just as He has done for me. As I strive to live a Christlike life, which can be very difficult, I continuously learn of my Savior's selflessness and compassion, and His example only motivates me to be more like Him.
