Lord, bless the love between us❤️🙏🏾
Lotu o Tamaiti 2017. Children are a heritage from the Lord.  Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one's youth.  Blessed.  Lord, in return, we raise them in Your ways to love and serve You always ❤️Happy White Sunday to my babies and all the children who gave God their best today during their White Sunday programmes🙏🏾
Such a lovely feeling to have most of our family babies together and although sadly we are missing some due to distance we are also happily awaiting the arrival of our newest family pepe!! Such a sweet thing to be growing in numbers.  All in God's good timing.  We pray for more moments together like this and praying that the next time will be complete @susanamuaiava ❤️❤️😍😍 Muaiava Family strong xx
On days like today we remember the positive impact of those whom we have in our lives.  The father figures who guide us with their wisdom and their love.  Father figures who are strong and courageous, steadfast and unshakeable.  Praise God for your presence in our lives.  Happy Father's Day to my Dad, Father in law and my brothers.  Happy Father's Day, too, to si o'u alofa.  God bless and guide you all.  With love today and always❤️❤️❤️
My husband and my son.  My husband is such a strong pillar of culture and language in our little family.  He is a wonderful example for our girls and our son.  Here he is reading his son the story of Sina and Tigilau.  Sharing with our children our stories of old.  For the love of our Gagana. 🙏🏾🇼🇸❤️
Bedtime reading.  Raising our children to be strong and confident bilingual readers.  Raising our children to be strong and confident  in both the Samoan and Palagi world.  For the love of our Gagana ❤️🇼🇸🙏🏾
Slow cooker Sunday.  It's my life saver when I need to have the kids ready for church and be on time as well as have piping hot food ready for when we get home.  Mama life and I love it!  Counting my blessings. 🙏🏾
Really enjoyed the food, the company and the shared stories full of laughs and heart and reminiscing as well as looking forward.  Thank you for the warm hospitality, the delicious food for the body as well as the food for thought.  God bless the roads that lay ahead ❤️❤️❤️
Wake. Pray. Slay.  With a full teaching load this trimester as well as writing for his PhD, most would be dreading the first day of work especially after the 6 months we spent at home in our beautiful Sāmoa, but not this man.  He does just that, he wakes, prays and is ready to slay this trimesters teaching load.  His words before he left the house, "five months hun let's do this!! Read the kids their books and never stop praying". Couple goals.  Muaiava family goals.  Feeling re freshed and inspired.  Si o'u alofa, your great expectations always push us to be better and to do better.  God be your guide in all that do. 🙏🏾❤️💛
While we are experiencing hail and current 6 degree New Zealand weather, my heart yearns for Sāmoa.  The simplicity of life in the homeland is contrasted with the fast paced life here in New Zealand.  I would trade my job, our house, our salaries, to be back in the land that has my heart.  In the meantime, we will serve our God wherever He has planned for us to be in this moment in time, while always praying that He will lead us back home.  We trust Your timing Lord.  Family strong with God at the helm 🙏🏾 Our love for our homeland ❤️🇼🇸
A week ago yesterday was our last Sunday Service of our 6 month journey in the homeland.  Reminiscing about how wondrous God and His works truely are.  His plans for us are by far bigger and better than we can imagine for ourselves ❤️💛🙏🏾 We give to you Lord the next chapter because we know that you will always steer us in the right direction.  God, You know our hopes and dreams and we give them all to You with prayerful hearts.  Our life in the homeland 🇼🇸
Final aoga pese.  Blessed to be able to serve our God for He is ever good to us.  Never has He failed, never has He forsaken us.  To You we sing with grateful hearts for leading us throughout this journey 🙏🏾 life in the homeland 🇼🇸
