Hi I'm Angela

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Fijian of Indian ancestry that has always loved to read. I was introduced to the gospel of Jesus Christ by missionaries in Fiji when I was 17 years old. As a child I was always sick because I had asthma and that introduced me to the medical field. I later came to America and finished my education in medicine. I am a family doctor and work part-time in Colorado. I married a wonderful man, Kevin and we now have 3 beautiful daughters. I love to garden and I preserve the fruits of the garden through canning. I love to cook and feed my family healthy meals. I have friends of many faiths and racial backgrounds and love international cuisine and am teaching my kids to appreciate all foods and people. I have always loved to travel and did more traveling as a single person but my family are still well-traveled as we have family in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Canada, India and the United States.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been an avid reader.I read all that I could about the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day saints and read the Book of Mormon when the missionaries introduced it to me at age 17. I felt the power of this book. I learned about Jesus Christ and I met wonderful people in the church. I still love to read and learn and the church encourages this. I have found that living and obeying the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ brings me peace and joy in a world that has such shifting values. Life has many challenging moments and I know that there is a God who knows me personally and loves me. He has walked with me throughout life and helped me succeed when I thought I couldn't. I want my friends and family to know how much the Savior means to me. It is because of his grace and unconditional love that I am able to find joy and peace in this world.

How I live my faith

I live my faith each day as I look at the world through eyes of faith, I pray and meditate and try and commune with my God. I, together with my husband, try to teach my children each day this same principle, that they are not alone, that a higher power is always available to them. We as a family just participated in a service project where we gleaned fields of local farmers at the end the season for the local food banks and homeless shelters. My kids loved it and want to do it every weekend. Because I have been so blessed I have always believed in giving back to the community and those that have less-I have worked as a volunteer in teaching English as a 2nd language, shared my medical expertise in homeless clinics and woman's shelters and love cooking/baking and sharing goodies with neighbors and friends. As I have worked in the medical field, I have come in contact with people of all faiths and many who are searching for answers. I enjoy being a light for Christ and share his love with those I meet. I am not perfect so I often also have to use Christ's atonement in my life to help me try and do better.
