Hi I'm Leigh

I'm from South Africa. My husband and I have 4 children. I am a Mormon

About Me

Hello! I'm a wife, a mom and a teacher. I have very special friends. I love reading, gardening, cooking, music, learning and all the beautiful and noble things the world has to offer. I love my family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I married a man from the Jewish faith and when two missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ knocked on our door, a week after we were married, we invited them in to share their message. I will forever be grateful to my husband for his religious tolerance and our decision to try and live a new life which has given us a happy and stable family and a knowledge of where we came from, why we're here and where we are going. Understanding this plan has brought security and happiness - and helps me align myself with the goodness the Saviour taught and lived.

How I live my faith

Happily, I have a chance to participate in many activities and responsibilities at church. Sometimes I teach a class, sometimes I play the piano. I have had such fun attending a youth camp as a leader, learning a new skill with other ladies or looking after little ones. Because there is no paid clergy we all have the opportunity to serve in various capacities - which helps one discover hidden talents :) and helps develop friendships and learn to serve and love like the Saviour did.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Mormon's are friendly, fun loving, happy people who have found joy by following the plan of happiness of our Heavenly Father and centering their lives on the gospel of Jesus Christ. We express our love and appreciation to all, focussing on our families and in service to others. Some of the things we love are dancing, music, food , visiting friends, holidays, good movies and sports. Show more Show less
