Hi I'm LeAnn Pehrson

I grew up in the Church. I'm a stay-at-home mom of 2 kids. I love my Savior. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in an active family in the Church. My parents taught my younger sister, brother and I how to live Christlike by their examples. After graduating from High School, I met the man I would marry while working a summer job. He waited until a week before I moved away to college to ask me out. We put a lot of miles on our cars that year, and have been happily married since 2006. We have 2 wonderful pre-school aged children. I am so appreciative of my husband and how hard he works so that I may stay at home to raise our children. I love reading, scapbooking, and water sports, including competitive swimming, water polo, and especially boating.

Why I am a Mormon

Since I was raised in the Church, I have been taught from childhood about our beliefs. Because of the agency that our Heavenly Father has given all of us, I have chosen to stay close to these teachings. Thankfully, my husband is a strong member as well and we can raise our children in the Gospel together. I have felt the Holy Ghost testify to me that this is the true Church of Christ, and our Heavenly Father loves us. He wants us to return to live with Him. He wants us to be happy. I know that the family is a sacred unit and that I will be with my loved ones for eternity.

How I live my faith

I was recently released from the Primary presidency in our ward. I love teaching the Gospel truths to these precious souls and learning from their simple faith in Christ. I also try my best to teach my own children from the scriptures, and I am constatly amazed at how much my 4-year-old loves her Savior and understands the Gospel.
