Hi I'm Leonard

I'm a husband, a father of two boys, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been married for 12 years and have 2 boys. I work as an accounting manager at a large technology company. My hobbies include rock climbing and playing golf. I also love music and enjoy playing the piano and organ.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints so I was raised in the Church. I continue to be active in the Church because its teachings help me to feel close to my Savior, Jesus Christ. Through the Church's teachings I've found answers to so many of life's questions (why am I here? how do I find happiness?), and that knowledge acts like a compass for me as I try to live my life the best way I can.

How I live my faith

I've moved quite a bit - both as a kid, and as an adult with my own family - and it's always been great to know that in each new place there's a Mormon congregation nearby with really friendly people that are eager to welcome a new family and help them to feel at home. Of course with a Church whose programs (Sunday school, youth group activities, community service) are run by its members, I've tried to give back as well. I play the organ for Sunday services. I've also taught Sunday school and worked with various youth programs. My church family has been a great blessing in my life, and through the gospel, I've found instruction and many great examples that have helped me to be a better husband and father. For that, I'm very grateful.
