Hi I'm Leland

I grew up in Las Vegas and raised four sons in the Pittsburgh area. My great love is family photography . I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am the oldest of seven children and the father of four boys and grandfather "Papap" of five, so far. I worked in the computer industry for over 13 years. I love candid photography, teaching and American Sign Language as these allow me to be creative and to connect with so many people. I have also been trying to learn Spanish for a long time.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a Mormon but had struggled to come to my own witness of the truths found in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Going through these testing times allows me to now say that I know for my self that The book of Mormon is truly a God inspired companion to the Holy Bible. These really are volumes which contain Heavenly Fathers direction for living a happy and blessed life. Living by their teachings will bring us back to God. Heavenly Father and his Son Jesus Christ really did appear to the boy Joseph Smith and thus began the restoration of Christs' church, even the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

How I live my faith

I love to teach and and am thrilled to be teaching a group of men in my congregation every month. I am also a volunteer webmaster for a singles group of church members in the area who are over 40.
