Hi I'm Lee Ann

I live in Texas. I'm a wife, a mom, a sister, a daughter, an aunt, a friend! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've lived in Texas nearly my whole life. I briefly left for work which took me to Washington State and New Jersey for a couple of years. I've been married to the love of my life for 9 years. We have 3 beautiful children. I love to scrapbook. I love to read to my children. I love to travel.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized when I was 16. I was so amazed when I started studying about the beliefs and doctrines of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints! So many of the questions I had contemplated for years had been answered. It felt familiar and right. I realized all the ideas I had about the church were off base and incorrect. I finally had peace with my understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I have now been a member of the church for over 15 years. I love the person I have developed into and know this is because of the gospel. I LOVE my Savior, Jesus Christ. I love the life he lived and the sacrifice he made for each of us. I love knowing that we have a Father in heaven who is very aware of us. I'm thankful for the Holy Ghost He has given us to lead us through this journey and help us recognize truth. I believe that Joseph Smith restored the church under the direction of Jesus Christ and Heaven Father. I believe the church is lead by a prophet of God. I am so glad to have the light of the gospel in my life. It gives me the peace and joy I can find no where else.

How I live my faith

I really try to serve anyone that I can. I have found that my own problems and circumstances are lightened when I serve others. I have served in several ways at church. Currently I am helping to lead the children's program. We are responsible for Sunday classes for children 18months-11 years. We teach them the gospel through activities, songs and scripture stories. The children participate by saying prayers, giving talks on simple gospel principles such as "I am a Child of God" and reading scriptures. I LOVE serving the children. They are so innocent and pure!
