Hi I'm LeGrand

I grew up in Panama City, Florida. I'm married to my sweet wife. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm married to a beautiful woman named Becky. She's my sweetheart. I met her in Gainesville, we dated and courted for a little over a year, and then married in the Orlando Temple. I love Becky and am grateful for her. I have two stepchildren who I also love. I'm kind of a quiet person, yet I can also be talkative. One of my most favorite things to do is to read a good book. Some of my other favorite books are the series by James Herriot and the Choose Your Own Adventure series (even though technically they're for kids). I also enjoy writing fiction.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I've had so many spiritual experiences while living Mormon beliefs. I feel very close to God my Heavenly Father and I feel very close to Jesus Christ. Even though life is not easy, I am at peace living the life of a Mormon. Being a Mormon has made me a better person, especially towards others. Being a Mormon has also blessed my personal life. It has helped me to live a balanced and generally happy life. I still have bad days, but I'm better able to deal with them by living Mormon beliefs. I love my Heavenly Father. I love Jesus Christ. And I love the Mormon church because it has helped me better understand who They are and how They feel about me. This has made a big difference in my life.

How I live my faith

Currently, I'm serving in the church as an executive secretary. I schedule appointments for members and non-members to meet with the local bishop. Outside of church, I work as a program support assistant at the VA Medical Center. I also plan to do graduate studies in English Education. God wants all of us to get as much education as we can, and I'm working on it as best as I understand.
