Hi I'm Rebekah Leigh

I am from Texas, married to a Californian. I am a teacher. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married to my perfect match! We have one son with another on the way; becoming parents has changed our lives. The most exhilarating thing I've ever done is skydiving. My dad is in the Army, so I have always been very patriotic. I speak Spanish fluently and I LOVE to travel. I also enjoy participating in humanitarian efforts.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents converted to Mormonism in their teens. They taught us the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ as they raised us. As a teenager, I recognized the need to decide on my own what I believed. I came to know that the things my parents taught me were true and that by living what I knew to be true, I would be sincerely happy. That has been the case my whole life.

How I live my faith

I am a Sunday School teacher for the teenagers in our congregation. I enjoy preparing topics for discussion every week, learning from our students, and sharing life experiences that have strengthened my faith in Jesus Christ.

Why don’t women hold the priesthood in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints? How do Mormon women lead in the Church?

Rebekah Leigh
Men and women have been given different responsibilities by God. Women work together with the men who hold the priesthood, to make decisions and serve those in their stewardship. Show more Show less
