Hi I'm Leslie Shaw

I grew up in Southern California. I love to play sports competitive or recreational. I am a missionary.

About Me

I am currently serving a mission. I am called to serve in the beautiful Ohio Cincinnati mission. One of my greatest passions are cooking and baking. I hope to graduate college with a major in Physics, but I may change my mind to Applied Mathematics. I am a lover of the math and sciences. English and history are not my strong suits at all. I also love to watch and play all sports.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that this is where God wants me to be. I know that God made this church to help me get back to Him one day. I know God loves me enough to have this church on earth today so that I will know what I have to return to Him. I have never felt for closer to God than when I am striving to become a better person in His church. I love this church because I know that I always be apart of something anywhere I go. The church stays the same everywhere you go and I know that God made it that way so we know that it is true. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true and that Jesus is older brother and protects me each and everyday because he loves me and I love him.

How I live my faith

I try my best to serve those around me with the talents The Lord has blessed me with. I love to make baked goods for someone who needs a little cheering up. I also help women in my community by helping them with everyday things. I am servings a mission currently. I know that this is where God wants me to be and I love my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

Being a current missionary, I talked to my parents and we discussed how we would pay for it. I worked for my dad for 5 months and whatever I did not cover in the 5 months my parents said they would pay. I am grateful for this opportunity and it feels great to be able pay for some of it myself. Show more Show less
