Hi I'm Leah pierce

I am married, have 4 children, 11 grandchildren. I am a nurse and hairdresser & I am a mormon .

About Me

I am the middle child of 4 brothers,2 sisters, born to two special parents ,mom is 91 years old and still cooking and ironing. I am a nurse in an assisted living community . I love working with the elderly , I've learned so much about life from them . I enjoy having sleepovers with my grandchildren, blow up beds everywhere ,they have taught me much as well. I like to read, oil paint, draw, write poetry ,and sew . My family and my faith are first and foremost in my life .My husband is my best friend, we enjoy spending time together.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was baptized at the age of 12, I did not become active in the church until everything in my life seemed to be going wrong and I started to pray and read my scriptures daily. Answers started to come, the Spirit spoke to me in a still small voice, told me that keeping the commandments brings peace. It was after I began to do this my life changed dramatically,I discovered The scriptures are true, Heavenly Father hears and answers prayers, keeping the word of wisdom and paying tithig blesses my life. I regret the time I wasted not being active and keeping the commandments . realized obedience brings blessings and wisdom .

How I live my faith

My day starts with prayer and scripture study. I thank my Heavenly Father daily for the blessings in my life, especially my Savior, who sacrificed His life for me , so I may repent and be forgiven . I attend church on Sunday's to partake of the sacrament and renew the covenants I've made at my baptism, to follow The Savior. I have either been a teacher or a counsellor in our primary, young women's organization, or our women's organization or have taught seminary in all my active years in the church . I've just been released from a 6 year calling in the church nursery, ages 18 mos. To 2 years old. What sweet innocent spirits. I am presently involved in assisting to organize our emergency plan for all the members in our area in case of a natural disaster . Once organized, plans in place, each member is assigned an ECP, emergency contact person , so all will be accounted for and receive assistance when needed. I am also a visiting teacher assigned to contact 5 sisters in our congregation , monthly , to see if assistance is needed, if so , I will contact local leaders to help . Also to deliver a spiritual message each visit. It is a spiritual and uplifting program .Being a Mormon is a way of life, because our bodies are considered "Temples" we are asked to treat them as sacred ,consequently I do not smoke, drink alcohol, drink coffee, tea, or partake of anything habit forming or harmful. We are asked to be honest, law abiding, and kind, helpful to others as the Savior taught.Our local leaders assign each member assignments or "callings" to serve in the church. I accept each one with willingness to serve, as the Savior said in Matthew, in as much as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto ME.' Serving has blessed me, strengthened me, taught me, inspired me in ways unimaginable or explainable.I am a daughter of GOD, he expects great things from me.I do not want to let Him down.
