Hi I'm LeeAnn

I grew up in the Seattle area. I'm a wife and mom and a new grandma. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married and a mother of 6 awesome children, 3 girls and 3 boys. Our oldest is married and we love our son-in-law. My husband and I just became grandparents to the cutest grandson! I enjoy spending time with my family, crocheting, reading, cooking, watching movies, dry pack canning and home canning. My faith and family mean the world to me!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been blessed with parents that raised me and taught me the principles of the gospel. Through out my life I have come to know the sweetness that the gospel brings. The knowledge that I lived in Heaven before I was born and the knowledge that I can return and live with my Heavenly Father and Savior again helps me continue to live the principles of the restored gospel. I have felt the Holy Ghost witness to me that it is only through Jesus Christ that I can gain salvation. Through studying of the History of Joseph Smith the Holy Ghost bore witness to me that Joseph Smith saw the Father and Son and translated the Gold plates into what is now the Book of Mormon. I love to read the Book of Mormon. Each time I read it I learn something new that helps me draw closer to my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I have the opportunity to work with the women in the church. A few times a year I get to teach a Sunday lesson to the women. I am strengthened in my faith and testimony as I hear other women share their thoughts and testimonies. The women of the church have amazing strengthen and they love to serve and help those around them.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

There is a prophet that lives today as was Moses a prophet to the Israelites. The Prophet speaks for God letting us, his children, know what we are to do in this life at this time on earth. As the world situations change, God will instruct the prophet and the apostles on what we need to be doing to continue to live in manner that will strengthen our faith in Jesus Christ and how and what to do to resist the temptations of Satan. Just as the Israelites followed Moses out of bondage and into the promised land as we listen and follow the Prophet today, Thomas S. Monson, he will tells us the things we need to do to bring us back to live with our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a true Prophet that guides the Church of Jesus Christ today. Show more Show less

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Yes, a husband and wife can forever and families can live together forever in heaven. Through the priesthood power a husband and wife can be sealed for time and all eternity in one of the many temples here on the earth. This same priesthood can seal families together so that they may have the blessing of being together after this life. I feel very blessed knowing that those I love here on earth can be with me in the next life. In Heavenly Father's plan the Family is the most important relationship here on the earth and he has made it possible through the priesthood and righteous living that we can continue those relationships throughout eternity.
