Hi I'm Leasel Highsmith

I am a mom. I love my family and spending time with them. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mom of 2 beautiful boys and another child on the on the way. I enjoy outdoor things Hiking, camping, boating, wakeboarding, snowboarding, riding bikes. I enjoy doing all sorts of crafts. I love my family very much and enjoy to be around them even doing the everyday things.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I was taught of the truths of the gospel and Jesus Christ at a very young age. There have been many experiences in my life that have given me testimony of the truth that I have been taught. For a short time in my young adult life I chose to take a different path, to stop going to church, to stop living the standards that I had been taught. I thought that maybe I would be happier. It didn't take long for me to feel lost and confused, Who was I? I didn't know. After fervent prayer my testimony I have always had that I was A CHILD OF GOD came back to me and from that point on I knew I could never be happy living my life with out my Savior, his teachings, his Atonement and His Church. I then strengthened the relationship I had with my Savior and my Father in Heaven. I was not only happy but I found Joy in my life once again. My family is forever. I know that no matter what happens in this life no matter how hard it gets that in the end I will enjoy eternity with my Heavenly Father Jesus Christ and all the people I love! I know that my Heavenly Father loves me and knows me and he knows what is best for me and my Family. I know that he loves each of his children all the same and that we are all Children of God. I know that I am not perfect and I am grateful for the power of Christs atonement so I can be forgiven for the many mistakes I have made and will make in this life. I know that Heavenly Father hears and answers prayers and I am grateful to have to gift of the Holy Ghost to help direct my life and know what God's plan is for me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to do all God asks of me. I not only attend church on Sundays I communicate several times a day with my Heavenly Father. I teach my children that they are Children of God and that he loves them. I teach them of Christ and all that he has done for us and the miracles he has performed. I try my best to be like Jesus. To be kind and Considerate of others to Love them for who they are. I try to help others whenever I can. I attend the temple as often as I can with my husband to find peace and to remind me of the covenants I have made with my Heavenly Father. I also enjoy being a Cub scout leader and teaching they 8 year old boys in my community about life skill and how to be a good citizen and how to be safe and many other things! I visit with a few sisters each month and share messages about Christ and his teachings and do my best to help them with whatever their needs at the time may be...Sometimes it is just a listening ear and a friend... After all we all need a friend sometimes right? I try to make wise choices and I avoid harmful things that would affect my health and my body such as smoking and drinking alcohol or any other addictive thing. I live my faith my showing respect for myself and others and wearing modest clothing. I live my faith by keeping my relationship with my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ strong.
