Hi I'm rinna

I was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia. Currently serving a mission in California. I'm proud to be a Mormon !

About Me

I was fortunate enough to be born and raised in the church. I love to sing, dance, and play basketball ! I'm not a good cook haha, but I can clean to perfection . my dad was converted into the gospel by my mum who met him after she served a full time mission. I am currently studying Certificate IV in Childrens Services. I live a really simple life; Church, work and home, but honestly I love every bit of it :) I've been told that I tend to have the personality of a tomboy. In my life I have overcome so many obstacles and trials that have definitely tested my faith but being able to endure them and overcome them , I can proudly say that my failures have made me the young woman that I am today.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I chose to be. Yes, my parents did bring me up in the church and did raise me so that my life would be based around the church and it's teachings, but as soon as I became of age to decided for myself whether this is the path that I wanted for myself, I knew without a doubt that this is who I was destined to be, this is who I chose to be in the pre-existence. and who I will continue to be forever into the eternities. The Church of Jesus Christ is where I am most happiest, not only with my family but with my friends as well. Being apart of the Church has helped me realize my true potential, my self-worth, has helped me build relationships with girls and guys my own age and helped create life-long friendships & lastly has helped me find peace in knowing that Families are Forever and there is a chance for me to live with my family after this life. Being Mormon, Latter Day Saint, Christian, whatever you call us these days ... it's a blessing and just the thought of not having the gospel in my life breaks my heart because I know I wouldn't be the woman today without it :).

How I live my faith

I used to have a calling as a Primary Teacher, looking after ages 4-5. They were so adorable ! being able to teach and look after them, makes you realize that its not always the teacher teaching the students, but the students educating the teacher. One of the main principles that I learnt from teaching the kids is patience.. Learning this, it helped me at work immensely as I work at an OSHC Service running Before and After School Care Programs and dealing with kids every day patience definitely plays a big role when taking care of them. The reason why I'm not a Primary Teacher anymore is because I recently got my mission call to Labor in the California Oakland San Francisco mission, speaking the Samoan language.
