Rhonda is a bit obsessed with bread (in fact a “bread head”) and she loves baking and cooking anything, especially if it is difficult to bake. She doesn’t go many days without baking something.

Renee is part of our Content & Creative Team at A Worldwide Sisterhood.
Renee was born and raised in Auckland, New Zealand, is of Samoan/Chinese descent, and has been living in Australia for 11 years. Renee and her husband met at the very first YSA Conference held in New Zealand (Hamilton), in 2009—were engaged three weeks later, and married for eternity two months later, in the Hamilton, New Zealand Temple. They have five little ones.
Renee is a creative who loves pretty much anything arts and crafts related. Hand lettering gospel quotes and scriptures are her favourite pastimes. Renee is an encourager, a loyal friend, and loves cheering on other women. It doesn’t matter if she’s known you for years or just met you—in person or online—she will cheer you on in what you’re pursuing.
Renee is a firm believer that all things are possible when you choose to include the Lord in your life. Renee started @inspiringwomenwhoknow, in October 2018, after feeling the Spirit to do so. In March 2019, that space morphed into being about personal revelation, after the Spirit brought back to her remembrance of a very tender time in her life—the passing of her very first friend in Brisbane.
Renee’s message is that one of the most powerful ways we can draw closer to the Saviour is through personal revelation. It is her hope that women in the gospel, throughout the world, come to know for themselves the spiritual power they have within to access heaven’s help on a daily basis, as they “Seek, to find Him.”
Renee currently resides in Australia.
Renee is currently taking some time to pursue personal and family matters, but you will continue to see her pop in every once in a while.
