Hi I'm Lesa

I grew up in the United States. I'm a military wife and a mom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am no where I expected to be when I was growing up. I went to college and started into a career after I graduated. After marrying my best friend in the Temple we moved because he is in the military. We have since moved a few times and are waiting for new orders to move again. Unexpectedly we had fertility issues. After years of trying, praying and crying we were blessed to adopt our beautiful daughter. That experience really strengthened my faith in the Lord. Now I spend my days focused on being a stay-at-home mom and volunteering where I can for church or community organizations. Each day is a blessing and is only enhanced by my trust in The Lord.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the LDS church. I trusted my parents and followed their example in the church. It wasn't until college that I truly understood the importance of the church in my life. After trying to become my own person I realized that the gospel only helps me to do that. I never left the church, but I was not active for a few years and when I became active again it was amazing the difference I felt in my life. I still have struggles, but everything seemed so much easier to deal with. Years later I can say that I have seen the hand of the Lord in my life on many occasions. Any time I have felt frustrated or lost I have just needed to refocus my life to the Lord and his teachings and I find my direction again.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by not allowing others to convince me to do something I would not have done on my own. I try to be an example of what the church stands for in everything I do. I do not hide the fact I am an actively religious person. I share with my friends what I do for church, just like I share any other activities with them.
