Hi I'm Leslie

I grew up in New York City. I'm a hula dancer. I'm a stay at home mom. I'm a student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Married over 14 years and a mother of two boys ages 12 and 10 and a girl age 7. I have enjoyed every minute of being a stay at home mom. I love volunteering at my children's school. I love dancing and belong to a hula troupe. I love photography, reading, running, and bike riding with my family. I'm a full time student, studying to become a elementary school librarian.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a covert to the Church and joined at age 17. Even though I grew up in the Catholic religion which has many great values, I felt something missing. Didn't know at the time what it was but began searching different churches for the answer. At the age of 17, I decided to stop searching because I wasn't finding the answer I was looking for and after making that decision the next day I met the missionaries. Finally found the answer the minutes I stepped into this Church. I KNEW that was I was searching for was here and the spirit confirmed it to me. A sense of belonging and that I finally came home. Best decision I have ever made was become a Mormon. It completely changed my life for the better.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by teaching my children the gospel. I serviced in many callings, that enable me to help teach the children and adults about the gospel. Having family prayers and reading the scriptures daily has help increase my testimony of the gospel.
