Hi I'm Ranadi

I'M A MORMON. I grew up on the beautiful islands of FIJI. I love reading and listening to music, and i love to travel.

About Me

I hail from the beautiful Friendly Islands of Fiji. I am the middle child of 3, I have a older brother who currently resides on the beautiful island of Tahiti with his beautiful wife and 3 kids. I was born and raised in Fiji, but then my family migrated to the states when I was 17, now I currently live in Menlo Park with my parents and younger sister. I attend the San Francisco Fijian branch which is located in Millbrae, CA. I love to travel, read, hang out with family and friends and live life to the fullest.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church, My moms family are one of the pioneers of the Fijian saints back home. Growing up in the church I have always come to believe in the teachings of the gospel. My mom would always make us go to church every Sunday, but I always enjoyed church. I always looked forward to church. Moving to the U.S. kinda made me realize more things about the church. I always prayed and studied the bible and Book of Mormon, at first I was shy to go to church because new faces and people. But I came to realize the church is the same everywhere, only thing different was the people, my testimony grew stronger the more I attend sacrament and the classes. Many people talk bad about the church, all I know is the church is true, because I have read, studied, pondered and prayed about it and I know it to be true. The Book of Mormon and bible go hand in hand, others may see it other wise but in my heart I know it's true, even tho I'm still learning I know it's true. No one is perfect. IM A MORMOM, I LIVE IT, I LOVE IT

How I live my faith

I live my faith to the best of my abilities. I try my best to do what I can to have a happier and wonderful life. Even though I have two jobs I always try to make time to attend sacrament meetings on Sunday and to attend the activities. Sometimes I can get stressed at work but when I'm at church I can feel a sense of peace and calm. I currently work with the little kids, it is such a joy to be able to work with our future generations because there innocence can always make me question myself whether I am doin what the lord requires of me? Am I being a good example to the little ones? Am I living a worthy life? Sometimes there answers are so unexpected that you can just feel the saviours love for each and everyone of us. we are taught to humble ourselves, no matter how much stress, pain or anguish can cause us, if we humble ourselves, we most definitely won't regret anything. Of course it's hard, but it's better to try it cause in the end it will be of benefit. I have experienced this, I used to get sooo mad when people did bad things to me, but I learned how to humble myself, it took some time but now it's possible and I can see a major difference in my life.
