Hi I'm Aleasha.

I am a devoted wife. I am a mother of two. I am a craft and health enthusiast. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I received my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and then enjoyed teaching first grade. I now stay at home to teach my own children. It is the most difficult and tiring job I have ever had, but it is also the most fulfilling and joyful one. I have always loved hobbies that are active. While growing up, I danced, did gymnastics, cheer leading, show choir, and wrestled with my brothers. Now as a young mother, I am active in different ways as I play with my two little children. I hike with children on my back, go for runs while pushing kids in the stroller, walk around a train table hundreds of times, and bounce babies on my knee. During kids' nap times, I love creating things. Sometimes my creations work and sometimes they end in a lesson of what doesn't work! I enjoy recreating clothes, jewelry, or home items that I see in a store or that I have pictured in my mind. My husband has lovingly told me that "our house is in a constant flux" as I add new creations to the walls of our home or to the wardrobes in our closets on a regular basis. Each phase of life has brought new knowledge, interests, and hobbies with it. I hope to continue to expand the person that I am and the things that make me who I am.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are both active members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and raised my four siblings and I in a home where the principles of the gospel were taught daily. As I have become a parent and now have the responsibility of raising my own children, my testimony has grown exponentially. The first time I saw my children, I knew without question that they were sent from a perfect and loving God. I felt an overwhelming love for my babies and I also felt the love that our Father in Heaven has for them. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints teaches us that we are all children of God and that He loves each of us and knows each of us perfectly. God has a plan for each of His children and that plan extends beyond this life. Marriage and families are central to the plan. My greatest happiness comes from my family. The gospel of Jesus Christ makes it possible for me to be with my family for eternity and to continue that happiness beyond this life. I make mistakes every day and I have hope because I know that those mistakes can be taken away and I can try to be better the next day. Those mistakes and burdens are taken away because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I need help to make it through life's challenges and I find that help through Jesus Christ and the power of prayer.

How I live my faith

I strengthen my relationship with God through daily prayer and study of the scriptures. I teach my children that they have a Father in Heaven who they can pray to in order to receive help whenever they need it. I have been involved with the youth groups where I taught lessons on Sunday at church and planned weekly activities for the girls to attend. The goal of the lessons was to teach the youth where they came from and how they can live to receive of God's greatest blessings. Activities included service projects for the elderly, cooking,sewing, talent shows, and bike rides in the canyon. During these activities the youth would learn to help others as Jesus Christ taught and to further the gifts and talents that God gave them. I have most recently been asked to help plan a summer camp for girls of high school age where the goal will be to help them develop a closer relationship with Jesus Christ while being outdoors and enjoying God's creations.
