Hi I'm Leslie

I'm a Mormon. I joined the Church at BYU when I was 19 after taking a Book of Mormon class. Best decision ever made; it's so true!

About Me

I'm a mother of 4 grown children; the oldest 3 are married, each with one child, and the youngest is in college. Being a grandma is the best!! I work full time and come home to a great meal that even looks nice, since my husband works at home. The role reversal thing is different, but it works for us! I like to travel, excercise, read, socialize, I'm just like alot of people.

Why I am a Mormon

Because it brings me such joy! I know what I have learned about Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ is true. I know that they love each of us and they want us all to be happy and know them. I know that Jesus Christ is literally God's Son, it makes perfect sense. I know the teachings of this Church are right and good. The Gospel is simple. Living the Gospel brings great happiness to me and to others who are learning and making those right choices. I love to read the scriptures since it brings much hope and happiness and great teachings. I know Heavenly Father hears our prayers and answers them; maybe not in the way that we want, but what is best for us.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reading the scriptures and praying for those things that I need, and giving thanks for all of my many blessings. I try to keep the commandments and do the right thing, because I know they are given to make us and those around us happy, and the older I get the more I get it! I try to always keep a positive attitude. I teach 5 year olds at Church, and they really teach me alot too.
