Hi I'm Leila
I am a stay at home mom to 4 great girls ages 2 to 11. I love to quilt and read. I like to read so much that I try not to - I get so wrapped up in a story that I don't get anything done until I finish. Anyone else do that?
Why I am a Mormon
Both of my parents are active members of the church, so I have been a Mormon virtually from birth. But why am I still a Mormon? When I read the Book of Mormon and Bible, I feel the spirit and know what is written there is true. When I listen to talks from church leaders, I feel the spirit and know what they say is true. It is all of the little things that make me a Mormon. All of the answers to prayers, all of the times the spirit has touched my heart...
How I live my faith
I don't think faith is just a "Sunday Thing." I think we live our faith when we are Christ-like in everyday situations being patient in traffic, helping out others, not gossiping and showing patience and love to our children - even when they are whiny. My husband and I try to live our faith by reading the scriptures and praying as a family every evening. We try to take time to talk about what we are reading with our girls so they understand and can apply what we read. We try to be good neighbors and involved in the community. I currently serve on our small town Planning and Zoning Board. Over the years, I have also served in various ways in the Church's programs for children and women.
