Hi I'm LeAnn

I love to travel. I love to teach. I love family life. And I love being a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a traveler & love exploring. I got the bug on one of those Europe trips with a Eurail pass where you sleep on the train every night and wake up in a new country every morning: Germany, France, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, and Czechoslovakia (back when it was still that name). Since I’ve traveled to Korea, Mexico, England (where some of my ancestors are from), Jordan, Israel, and Ukraine (where I practiced the little Russian I know and adopted two daughters). I have a passion for teaching – not school teaching, but teaching spiritual things & the plan God has for us because once you get that, the rest totally makes sense. My degrees are in Computer Science (where I programmed computers for Uncle Sam via a beltway bandit company near DC for a few years) and a masters in Education, (I had a little extra time on my hands one year). I have seven children, who are, as Garrison Keillor says, “all above average.” They are the delight of my life, though it doesn’t seem it when I make them do the dishes. I’m currently writing life stories and digitizing hundreds of family history stories and pictures I’ve collected over the years so my computer-savvy kids can have a copy.

Why I am a Mormon

Because it’s a life of conviction and confidence and joy for me.

How I live my faith

That’s just it. I live by faith, which is a principle of trust and a principle of action. I trust God’s will. I trust that He’ll make His will known to me. I also trust that He knows me personally with an infinite love. And I act on what I believe to be right. It permeates everything I do. I don’t wait around for answers from God, but as I live my life seeking His help, and step forward with faith into the unknown, He guides my steps. I’ve felt it. It’s real.
