Hi I'm Lesley

Hi I'm a mum of 4 children, I work full time, have several responsibilities in church and I'm a Mormon and love it.

About Me

My name is Lesley, I'm married with 4 children, I love my family, I work in a primary school and love my job. I love sports and I would say I am a little competitive, this even comes across in my class as we like to always win. My children are growing up to quick for my liking, I wish I could turn back the clock to when they were babies.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptised a member of the church when I was a child, I have grown up in the church, but like everyone else I was encouraged to gain my own testimony of the church, which I have got, I love the fact that our church is not just a Sunday church, we live the gospel each and every day of out lives, the way we act, speak and conduct ourselves. If we are followers of Jesus Christ then to me that should be every day and not just days and times that suit. I don't see myself as a goody two shoes, I just try and think would the saviour do that/this, it's something that is taught to our little children, and something that has stuck with me throughout me life, I always try to do my best, sometimes I fall short but I know I'm not perfect, so I get up and try again. I love my Heavenly Father and his Son Jesus Christ, I am so grateful for my Saviour sacrificing his life for me, and think me trying to do my best is the least I can do to repay him.

How I live my faith

I have been a member of the church for 34 years, which is a long time, but believe me it doesn't seem that long, I have loved very minute of it, I have responsibilities in church, at the moment I look after children ages 18 months to 12 years, which I love doing, we have lots of fun, we learn about the saviour Jesus Christ and how much he loves each and every one of us. I love putting on activities for the children and seeing how much fun they have. It's nice that we have good morals in church, so there is no bad language ect, and therefore a nice safe place for our young children to be, my two younger children are now in the youth programme and I feel so lucky that they are great kids, I always know where they are and that they're not getting upto anything bad. I feel very blessed to be a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
