  1. Hi,

    Not sure if I am ‘eligible’ so to speak.. lol but I will enquire anyway 🙂
    My name is Shana, I’ve been a convert to the LDS faith for about 5 years now. I’ve come from a wholesome family who brought me up with standards. I was born into the Islamic faith and converted out in 2011, when I decided to make a change in my life and to fulfill my hearts desires in being happy. I am happily married to a beautiful Tongan man, this will be our 10th year together and we parent two children – a girl and boy, named, Aliyah and Isaac.
    My daughter will be baptised this year as she turns 8 in October and is a big deal for me, as it’s the first baptism for me to endure in that consists of my own blood family.
    I’m a part time worker as well as a student. I work in the holistic health industry and am studying to be a certified doula, infant massage instructor and hypnobirthing educator.
    I believe in helping women birth their babies naturally and in a positive manner, without fear on their minds.
    I currently serve in my stake public affairs as an interfaith specialist, I try my best to attend all events & meetings that require to have my full efforts there. It’s so fitting for me to be in this calling, during this time that we are going through in this world with religion being a heavy subject and also with my conversion story and being so familiar with the Islamic faith. I love it! I hold so much pride with where I’ve come from and am not afraid to stand up for equality in religion.

    Sorry if all of this is a bit of a blur and muddled up. I’m trying to fit my whole life story in your little comment box on your website lol!

    I would love to share my story (properly) to other Polynesian women to help inspire and help educate lds members about finding peace and love with loving our sisters of other faiths! We hold a group called chai community that consists of 20+ women from different faiths that get together every month and catch up like old friends! It’s beautiful 🙂
    Would also love to inspire our pacific women on being a mum and wearing a lot of different hats! Sometimes I feel like a robot, some days I feel like a zombie and then some days I feel like my normal self again except I’m always the last one to have a shower in my home once the kids are in bed! Lol

    Anyway before I keep babbling on from topic to topic, let me know if I would fit your category in sharing my story 🙂
    My name on FB is Shana Afu.

    I look forward to hearing from you
