Hi I'm Portia

I was born and raised in New Zealand, alongside 5 brothers, 1 sister, 2 parents and I am a Mormon.

About Me

A little bit about me, I was born and raised in New Zealand, having spent alot of my days playing in the park til sunset, or riding our bikes through the grass, or skipping stones down at the waterfront. I have finished high school having completed a few of my favourite subjects, such as Art and Classical Studies. My hobbies include art, any kind of art, spending time exploring New Zealands rich natural enclosures, and spending time with family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

Having grown up in a family where the gospel is the center of our home and a home where my parents have taught and been examples of living the gospel dilligently, has set a strong foundation for me within this gospel, however as I have come to grow and learn whilst being in this enviroment, I have come to know of this truthfulness for myself and have experienced my own share of miracles and trials and tribulations where I have been able to lean on the Lord and seek his help and he has never hesitated to offer me comfort and answers. I am truely grateful for this gospel in my life and for the truths I know that have put my mind at ease, that if I follow the Lords example and his commandments and be obedient with exactness and do all that I know to be true, I will gain eternal life and be able to return to my Heavenly Father and also be reunited with my Dad and Grandma, and I am truely grateful for this.

How I live my faith

Currently I am the ward YSA female rep for our ward, and my basic duties when holding this calling is looking after the YSA programme within our ward, organizing activites and dealing out assignments and basically looking out for the wellbeing of the YSA, both our active YSA and our less actives. Ive also had alot interaction with the young women when my mum was president, I would help her in that regard and now that she is in primary I too help her with the children and am currently helping in Nursery.
