Hi I'm Riana

That's "Ree-ahh-nah" thank you & I'm a Mormon yo!

About Me

My family are quite the fruit salad; My fudge (dad) is Maori, my Mama is Italian, my Wal (ste-dad) is as ocker Aussie as you can get & Ikuko (ste-ma) is Japanese. 10 skids later (me being number three) we are a jumble of psycho GOODNESS! :) I love my Italian food & my Maori culture. I love to talk. I love to sing and to dance. I love my friends. I have the best of both worlds living between Australia and New Zealand. I love to travel, I love to dream! & "I just want to be......Happy!"

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because (apart from the amazing people and great food that comes with EVERYTHING ha ha) I know, through "searching, pondering & praying" about the Book of Mormon, that the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored back to the earth again through our beloved prophet Joseph Smith. I am not searching anymore for 'who I am' or what my purpose in life is (and as much as I love my "cultures" and have found great comfort and happiness in 'finding myself' within them ) I find a great sense of belonging and greater happiness in my identity as a daughter of a loving God & in the knowledge of where I came from, what I am doing here and where I am going after this life. I find continual peace and happiness knowing that through our Saviour Jesus Christ's atoning sacrifice, I can overcome sorrow and pain. I can be forgiven and improve myself each day. I love Him so very much & thats why I am a Mormon! :)

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a full time proselyting mission in the Australia Melbourne Mission, I love being a missionary and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with my brother's and sister's here.. It brings nothing but true and eternal happiness.
