Hi I'm LeAnna!!!

I am a Firecracker.

About Me

My name is LeAnna Longoria, but everyone calls me Banana! I am very "spicy," some would say badger-like. My motto is: keep it real. I am a very loving & happy person, it doesnt take much to get me laughing. I joined the church when I was 17 years old and now im serving in the Anaheim California Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Catholic Church but never felt a connection with God. When I hit my teenage years, I did not believe in Him. I couldn't and wouldn't believe in a God who would save a few of his beloved children and condemn the rest. What would be the point? Then, the missionaries came to our home and I still refused to listen to them. But then they taught me the plan of salvation/happiness and it changed something. I was so confused that I decided to get on my knees and pray. I prayed to know the truth, if this was the church that God wanted for me to join. He answered my prayer that night. I was humbled enough to see the bigger picture of life. I know that Heavenly Father answers our prayers and that he knows us perfectly. That he sent his perfect son to come to earth and die for us. I am greatful for the opportunity to prove myself to him and the knowledge that I can/will return back to him.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by choosing what is right, one decision at a time.
