Hi I'm Simone

I love to learn, I love to teach and most of all I love my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Queensland, finished high school and went on to University to study a Bachelor of Education. I became a special education teacher because I love to help people learn and develop, one on one. I enjoy working in education, but I feel strongly that my most important roles are being a daughter, granddaughter, sister and aunt. I also enjoy reading, cooking, listening to music and enjoying God's creations.

Why I am a Mormon

The teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have always made sense to me. As a child, I learned that keeping God's commandments and following His living prophet would make me happy, and I have repeatedly found that to be true. I know that God is our Heavenly Father, that He has given us this experience on earth to allow us to learn and grow, and that He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to help each of us return to Him. Inspired men have been given power and authority to teach the truths necessary for our salvation, just as they were in ancient times. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ because it is clear and simple: "Whoso repenteth and is baptised in my name shall be filled; and if he endureth to the end, behold, him will I hold guiltless before my Father at that day when I shall stand to judge the world."

How I live my faith

Currently I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, living and working in Melbourne. Family has always been very important to me, and leaving them for 18 months was the hardest part of my decision to serve a full-time mission. However, I know that this is part of my Heavenly Father's plan for my life and missionary work is very rewarding. My best experiences with sharing the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ are when I get to see people's hearts change and a new light come into their lives. Knowing that we have a Heavenly Father who loves us unconditionally and that He has provided a way for us to return to Him brings peace and purpose to life, and this is what I want to help others find for themselves.
