Hi I'm Leah

I am a daughter and sister. I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I am a student of the Gospel and of English literature. I am a Mormon

About Me

I am a full-time student who loves learning about English, especially when it comes to the wondrous stories that those words can create. I am also studying the family, learning about the different aspects that make a family a family, what I can do to help strengthen the families around me, and be better prepared for a family of my own one day. I love spending time outdoors, whether hiking, biking, or just taking a walk. Simply put, I enjoy marveling at this wonderful world that Heavenly Father created for us to live in and enjoy. It is wonderful to be reminded of the care and detail that Heavenly Father put into this world, and the care and detail that He puts in my own life as well.

Why I am a Mormon

My testimony of the Gospel really didn't come in one big moment, it has come as I have tested the principles of the Gospel myself and learned of their truthfulness. It has come as I have studied and prayed about the scriptures and the words of our living prophet today. My testimony started when I was little, it will be a life-long process of learning, testing, and coming to know for myself of the truths contained in this beautiful Gospel; for it is in those marvelous moments where everything just makes sense, that I have gained my testimony. I know that I have a loving Heavenly Father, that He placed us here on earth for a reason, and that His desire for us is to be happy. I am a Mormon because living the Gospel helps me to be happy, it is as simple as that.

How I live my faith

I know that this Gospel will bring nothing but happiness to all of Heavenly Father's children. I have experienced it in my own life, and I want to share it with others. I love to help others even if it is just in simple ways, like smiling or saying "thank you". At church I have been given the opportunity to help the women, by listening, teaching, sharing, and most of all learning together. I have loved gaining new understanding through these women, as we have developed strong friendships with each other. I enjoy listening to what others have to share about their faith, finding the similarities, and learning from each other what makes us happy in life. What most of us have in common is the love of our families, and the desire for that relationship to last. That reason has led me to learn as much as I can about this sacred relationship, and how I can help teach and strengthen others with this special relationship.
