Hi I'm Ranadi

I grew up in Fiji. I Love my Homeland, I Love Music, Dancing and Serving and I'm so blessed to be a Mormon :)

About Me

I absolutley love music and anything to do with it, I love cooking and I enjoy serving others and putting a smile on their faces:) I am a daughter and a sister to 5 siblings. I love writing and being creative and I am currently serving the Lord in the California Los Angeles Mission!!!!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have a testimony that God is real and He lives and Loves each everyone of us because we are all his children, regardless of where we come from or of who we are he loves us ! I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and he lives. I'm so grateful for his atonement and his example it gives me hope knowing that I can one day overcome all the challenges of this world and live with my Heavenly Father again. Since I was born in the Church I've always heard people bearing their testimonies and testifying that they know the Church is true and that God lives ! I always wandered how they knew all these things with such conviction and I longed to know for myself too, and have a testimony of my own. When I was about 17 I read the Book of Mormon ( although I've read it many times before this ) This time I read it real intent and with a desire to know of myself if it was true and if all the teachings in the church was true as well. As I continued to pray to God with Sincerity to know of its Truth the answer didn't come Miraculously or right away. Instead it came Gradually over time and Peacefully with the comfort of the Holy Ghost confirming in my heart that it is all True. I found myself in tears overwhelmed with Joy knowing that My Heavenly Father Lives and is aware of me and all that I go through, I knew then whithout a doubt that Joseph Smith was Truly a Prophet of God and that the Gospel in its fulness and in its perfect form is restored on earth once again and I am so Blessed to be a part of it. Through out my life I've found that regardless of all the difficulties that I face individually or with my family the gospel of Jesus Christ has always been able to provide me with that peace and comfort that the world can't, it gives me hope knowing that Heavenly Father loves me is always there for me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be a good example to those around me. I do my best to be a good influence and to be of good cheer to them. I try to always have an "Eternal Perspective" so that when things don't go as planned I know that Heavenly Father has Prepared something way better for us. I occasionally teach our Sunday School class and I love the wonderful lessons it has taught me ! I am Preparing to serve my mission next year and I am learning so much about about Heavenly Father's love for me. As I continue to practice all that I've learnt, I find that it brings me so much comfort and Peace and Happiness that I don't think could've received any other way. I love this Gospel and I have a desire to share it with anyone who is prepared to receive it.

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a Mormon is a Blessing. Having that knowledge of the Plan of Salvation and knowing that there is life after this gives me so much Joy, Hope and Courage to always Strive to emulate the Savior so that I can one day live with him. Being a Mormon is awesome because the Gospel provides us with so many programmes like Institute, Sacrament etc to increase our understanding of the Savior and also strengthen and Fellowship each other. Being a Mormon is a gift because we're blessed to have the Temple which allows Families to be together Forever :) Show more Show less
