Hi I'm Andre

I grew up in Hawaii! I've lived in California, Utah and now Houston, Tx. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of three children ages 27, 21 and 3! Our 21 year old son is serving a full time mission in the Mexico, Guadalajara East mission. We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our first grand baby. I come from a large family of 10 children. My mother was born and raised on the north shore of Oahu, Hawaii while my dad was born in Upolu, Western Samoa. My relatives are scattered between Hawaii, Southern California, Las Vegas and Utah. My husband and sweetheart's family is all back home in New Zealand. Family means everything to us! I have a passion for creativity and love to paint, scrap book, journal and keep a "Happy Book" of great personal and family memories.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and I love the joy that comes from living the Gospel. Quite simply, being a Mormon makes me happy, really and truly happy! I believe the most important thing I can do in this life is prepare myself and my family for eternal life by keeping the Commandments, following Jesus Christ's example of love and charity, and sharing this gift with others. I am so grateful that my family can be together forever, not just in this life, but forever! We were sealed together as an eternal family in the holy temple of the Lord. I have peace in knowing that I will see my dear mother again who passed away last year because we are an eternal family and life does not end with our mortal existence.

How I live my faith

I serve with the women's organization of our church. I love to teach classes on a variety of topics. My favorite topics are the ones that center on Jesus Christ and His teachings. I love to attend women's activities that teach different crafts, cooking techniques and other great homemaking skills. I get to work with some of the most talented and creative women!

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is a companion to the Bible and another witness of Jesus Christ. It contains the writings and history of the people on the American continent from before Christ's birth. There were many great prophets who recorded the experiences of the people during this time and when Christ appeared to the people, after His Resurrection, teaching them His gospel. The Book of Mormon contains the teachings of Jesus Christ, and like the Bible testifies of His Atonement and His love for all of us. Mormon was one of the last ancient prophets who was also one of the record keepers. The Book of Mormon concludes with a great promise that those who read it and sincerely pray about it can know by the Holy Ghost that it is true. Show more Show less
