Hi I'm Lesley

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Philadelphia , Pennsylvania and moved to South Carolina with my three children. I am African American.

About Me

I went to Catholic school from first through tweleth grade. I graduated Temple University, went to Eastern University to get my MBA in Health Care Administration. I have an eight year old son who has ADHD and Autism, a 15 year old son who is also ADHD and a 14 year old daughter. Mental Health have been an issue in our family all of my life. My gradmother was Schizophernic and I am BiPolar. I suffered from Post-partum Depression for my first two pregnancies and Depression during my pregnancy.

Why I am a Mormon

I was in search of peace and joy. When the missionaries came to my home there was an aura a joy and peace surrounding them. It was clear that they had a close relationship with Heavenly father and I wanted the same thing. I always had mental understanding of Christ and Heavenly Father but I did not have a emotional or spiritual connection until I joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I have been a memeber for a year ans so far I have gotten my Patriarchal Blessing, Completed Temple work for my ancestors and have gained a testimony of Jesus Christ in my personal life. I have gained peace, structure and purpose in my life. What I love the most about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints , is that learning is continuious and we have support while we endure until the end.

How I live my faith

I provide servie to those who are in need. I give back to the members of my community by providing academic, emotional or spiritual support to those in need. The more I give to others the greater the blessing I receive in my own life. I am learning patience and living without anger or resentlment. I am truly greatful for all of the things that I have in my life and try to take care of them the best that I can.

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

The Holy Ghost is my constant companion and is a soure of peace and joy in my choatic life as a full time mother , student and provider for my family. Show more Show less
