Hi I'm Leslie

I am a wife, a mother, and I love being a grandmother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love spending time with my family. The highlight of my year is our annual family vacation. I enjoy watching my grandchildren grow. I love seeing my children deal with my busy grandchildren. It is so entertaining. I love to sew. I love working on my family history and learning about my ancestors.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 16 years old I looked into the mirror and said to myself, "who are you and what are you doing here." I felt there had to be more to life than what I knew. It was a little later that I became friends with a girl in my high school. She was one of the few Mormon kids in my high school. I knew she would be a good friend because she didn't smoke or drink. My family's life had been devasted by alcoholism. I didn't want that for me. She invited me to church and I took lessons from the missionaries. I learned that I was a daughter of God. I was His special daughter. I knew who I was and that I had a purpose in life. In having that information I had the hope and knowledge to build a better life for myself. I knew any good thing in life could be mine if I worked hard for it, and kept my faith. It is not to say life hasn't been difficult at times, because it has, but knowing I have a loving Heavenly Father on my side has helped me face the challenges with hope and courage. I am grateful for the teachings of the gospel. I am grateful for the love of my Heavenly Father and my Savior, because of Them I am so blessed.

How I live my faith

I have had the opportunity to serve in my church in many different positions. I love working with the youth and seeing them grow. The most important place I have served is my in my home. I tried to instill in my children the feelings of my heart and what I believe. I want them to know of the love their Heavenly Father has for them and never to forget that. I want them to hold on to the faith that has blessed me throughout my life.
