Hi I'm Leann

I went to Le Cordon Bleu in Portland. I am a dancer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the fourth of seven daughters. My parents divorced when I was 16 years old. I grew up dancing, playing violin, and going to church. I gained a testimony of my own while attending Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Portland, Oregon. I will be serving an LDS mission in Cusco, Peru from April 2013 - October 2014.

Why I am a Mormon

Every person has their own conversion story. Whether born into this gospel, or converted by the help of missionaries. This is mine. During my teenage years, I was not an active member of the church, and didn't think I ever would be. Right after graduation, I left Utah for college to get a better idea of what the world was about. I quickly realized how blessed I was to be born into a family with strong values and in an area with a general understanding of those values. Slowly I began to drift further and further from the truth and found myself in a very dark place. Moving home after college was the best thing I could have done. I began to study diligently and pray harder than ever before. I knew repentance would be difficult, but it would be worth it. The more I followed Christ, the happier I became. In August, I decided to serve a mission, and when the age requirement was changed to 19, I was able to put in my papers in the following month. Deciding to serve a mission was the best decision of my life. This church is TRUE. This gospel brings happiness that no other church brings. REAL eternal happiness and eternal families. My family is my world, and I don't know what I would do without their continuous support and love. The Atonement of Christ is a blessing for ALL of us and enables us to repent and live with God again. I love serving the people of Houston, Texas and am so excited for the chance I have to serve in Cusco, Peru later this year.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving a mission in Cusco, Peru. I am so elated to have this opportunity and cannot wait to share the truth with the people of Peru.
