Hi I'm Leslee

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Utah and love it here. I love spending time with my husband in the outdoors. I also love this gospel. It is a huge part of the person that I am today.

Why I am a Mormon

Having lost my father as a child from suicide, I wanted to know that I would be with him again. And the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints focuses on families and eternal life. I know that I will be with my father again, and that our family is forever. That bring me so much peace. I believe in this gospel and everything about it. They teach nothing but happiness and positivity. To live as the Savior Jesus Christ did, and love others. I am inspired every day, thanks to the teachings of this gospel, to be a better person. Most of all, I know that when I make mistakes - which I do - I have the atonement to help me repent and start over again tomorrow. Reading the Book of Mormon gives me the guidance I need to press forward in this dark world. And our Prophet and his apostles teach divine counsel that is exactly what we need in this world today.

How I live my faith

I am currently in the Young Womens presidency. I get to help lead our youth onto a path of good choices and values. I enjoy working with the youth. I did not grow up an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. But, the Young Womens program for the youth ages 12-18, helped me form the woman I am today. It is such a divine program that guides the youth to have good values and make the choices that will guide them down a path that leads to eternal happiness and peace. I am grateful the Lord has blessed me with the calling to serve as a leader for the youth, so I can pay it forward for the leaders that once helped me.

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a Mormon is wonderful. It allows me to become a better person than I was yesterday. I have a Gospel of principles that help me to learn what it takes to have eternal happiness. The things of this dark world only lead to temporary happiness that can not last. The teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are to help us all become a better people. The atonement of Jesus Christ helps us to be forgiven for our mistakes and find happiness in the small things in life. The basic principles of this Gospel have lead me to be such a happy person inside and out by making good choices on a daily basis. Show more Show less
