Hi I'm Athelia Kaye Woolley LeSueur
I'm a Mormon.
About Me: I am a fashion designer. I live and work in New York City. I have loved clothes for as long as I can remember. Now I love my job too! Before becoming a designer, I was a modern dancer, counselor and neuroscience lab analyst. I married in my 30’s and am expecting my first child. I’m having a girl and can't wait to design clothes for her!
Why I am a Mormon: I am a Mormon because I have had deeply personal and sacred spiritual experiences with God. Through these experiences, I have learned of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon. I have also come to know that the principles that are taught in the Book of Mormon are true principles. The more I live them, the better my life. In short, being a Mormon makes me happy.
How I live my Faith: I try to do the basics. I pray morning and night, attend church and read my scriptures daily. However, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned that to be a disciple of Christ, I have to try and follow Christ’s teachings in the more complex and difficult areas of my life. It won’t suffice just to check boxes on my daily ‘to do’ list. For me, this means being kind to people when I don’t want to (I’ve found this is more and more challenging the longer I live in NYC!). It also means forgiving people when I don’t want to. Finally, it means serving others (again, especially when I don’t want to!).
