Hi I'm Kiana

I'm from Hawaii and serving as a missionary in Arizona. I love dancing, music, books, the ocean and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. I finished my first year of college at BYU-Idaho and majoring in Elementary Education. I have been called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Arizona Tucson Mission. I report to the Provo MTC on October 29th. I love going to the beach and going hiking and swimming. I love dancing, listening to music, and scrolling through Pinterest. I have always wanted to take a cake decorating and sewing class. I love traveling and learning about different cultures.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- Day Saints. Growing up until living on my own, I have gained my own testimony through many prayers and reading the scriptures. The gospel of Jesus Christ truly brings happiness in my life and I cannot imagine my life without it. All of the trials I have gone through in my life, I have held onto the gospel to help me. Even though life is hard I know that with the gospel in my life there is hope. I know that this church is true because I have prayed to know if it is true and have received the confirmation through the Holy Ghost that it is the only true church on this earth. I feel Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ's love for me every day through blessings and through the Holy Ghost who is the comforter. I do not know where I would be without this gospel and that is why I am going on a mission. I want others to have the happiness that I have with the gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by simply being an example to others. My friends back home are all non- members of the church and I try and set a good example for them. Even though people think that is very small, setting an example goes a long way. Service also plays a huge part in how I live my faith. The church is very good about promoting service. That is what the church is all about. We are here on earth to help our brothers and sisters and let them feel our love for them. Living a Christ- like life is how I strive to live my faith. I am not perfect at all, but I try my best to live my life in a way that Christ would. In our church we have the Visiting Teaching Program. This is where sisters in the church visit other sisters in our wards. The purpose is to share uplifting messages and offer service to the sister. Most importantly, the purpose is to just be a friend to the sister and make sure that they know that we are here whenever they need us. In college I have been visited taught and have taught other sisters. I love the visiting teaching program because it creates a unity within the sisters in the church.
