Hi I'm Leauna

I am a mom, hairstylist,student, future teacher and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the mother of one amazing son who just started attending UNC for music education. I am also a student and am currently student teaching and working towards my Elementary education liscensure so we have 2 students in our family!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and enjoyed a great childhood full of friends and family who shared my same values. When I entered my teenage years I started choosing some friends with different beliefs and began making some bad decisions. As a result I ended up as a single mother at 20 years old but I also had to take a long look at my life. I always new I had a testimony of the church and as I decided what was important to me I realized the gospel of Jesus Christ and thus the church were what meant the most to me. I repented of my bad decisions and began rebuilding my strength within the gospel through prayer and reading the scriptures. I developed my own testimony of the gospel and can say that I know from the bottom of my soul that this church is true and within the gospel of Jesus Christ lies true happiness. I have a testimony of the Book of Mormon as another testimony of Jesus Christ when he visited the Americas. The gospel has blessed me in so many ways. It has guided me in raising a son who has good morals, a strong sense of right and wrong and an amazing heart.

How I live my faith

I pray and read my scriptures each day. I pray for help and for guidance, I pray for others in need and to know how to help others each day. I pray to be a better person and to survive the trials we all face in life. It inspires me to do better and do for others where there is need.
