Hi I'm Lee

I'm a husband, father, professor at a university, triathlete, and a Mormon

About Me

I have been a Mormon my whole life and grew up in Utah. I then moved to Kansas to get my Ph.D. After living in Kansas City for a few years we moved to the Southeast. I have been married for over 18 years and we have three wonderful children. I enjoy being and husband and father. I really enjoy spending time with my family. I teach at a university and love my job especially the flexibility that allows me to be a family events. I am a triathlete and enjoying swimming, biking, and running but really like when I can put all three together in a race. I also enjoy fly fishing, camping, and spending time outside.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized when I was eight years old. When I was young I prayed to know if the Book of Mormon was true and received a witness that it was scripture translated by Joseph Smith. Since then my belief that the Mormon Church was true has grown through numerous experiences from having people help me in times of need to being blessed by the priesthood. There are many ways that being a member of this church has blessed my life and my family members. Finally, I love my family and through the blessings of this church we have been sealed in a temple and can be together forever.

How I live my faith

I live my faith but attending church meetings, visiting people in need, taking care of my family, studying the scriptures with my family, having family home evening on monday nights, and praying individually and with my family. I also work to follow our living prophet and his council. The prophet recently gave a talk on gratitude and as a family we decided to focus on our blessings and each night a dinner we go around the table and each person talks about what we are grateful for that we saw or experienced that day.
