AUCKLAND, New Zealand — “Shortly before turning 30, Roberta Tuilimu realized she wasn't happy. She had three beautiful children, and she loved their father, Daniel Nepia, but Roberta and Daniel weren't married. Daniel wasn't a member of the Church, and it had been a long time since Roberta had attended regularly,” begins a feature article in this month's global edition of the Ensign, a magazine published by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The article, written by Adam C. Olson and titled 'Lost and Found,' continues: “She was a long way from the temple marriage she had always dreamed of as a young girl who went to church every week with her parents in Auckland, New Zealand. But turning her back on her eternal goals wasn't a one-time decision; it had been a slow turn completed gradually through little decisions she made each day.”
