Hi I'm Lee

I grew up in Utah. I speak Portuguese. I'm a CPA and a Executive Coach. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of four wonderful children. I love to take them skiing and to their sports activities. Skiing in Colorado is wonderful. I love the outdoors - hiking, backpacking, fishing and hunting. I travel quite a bit for my business, so I really enjoy my time at home and with my family. I love to help other people bring the best of who they are to their work. I love to work with organizations that make a difference in the lives of others.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I was raised in the Church, I vividly remember a time in my life when I had to choose if this was for me. I wanted to know for myself if this Church was of God. Did I really believe that Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God, not unlike Moses, Abraham, Isaiah? Did I really believe that the Book of Mormon was true scripture that teaches us of Christ in companionship with the Bible? I had to know for myself. I did what James teaches in James 1:5 - I asked of God, and the sweet, warm, wonderful confirmation of the truth of these things came into my soul. I'm a Mormon because I know that by following Gods commandments and by serving others, my life will be incredibly rich - rich with happiness, family, blessings from God. To be sure, challenges in life abound, and we Mormons are not immune. I am comforted and encouraged to know that my Heavenly Father and his Son Jesus Christ will guide me through challenging times. In truth, they always have. Most of all, I love how the Plan of God is organized around families, and that families can be together for eternity. This is what I want and strive for above all else - the opportunity to live again with God and my family. It's a blessing and an opportunity that is extended to all of God's children.

How I live my faith

Being a Mormon is work. We work together to serve those around us. I've worked for a number of years with the young men and young women of the church - ages 12 to 18. What a tremendous experience that is! Right now I serve with a group that we call our "Young Single Adults." These are young men and young women who have graduated from High School and are either working or going to college. They are making very significant life choices at this time, and helping them is a wonderful blessing.
