Hi I'm Allyson Le Sueur

I'm a wife. I'm a mother. I'm an editor. I'm a reader. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town in Ohio where I was the Latter-Day Saint in my high school. After graduation, I moved to Utah and attended Brigham Young University. Shortly before graduating with a major in English and one in history, I met my future husband. I was hired as an editor for a software company before I got married. A year and a half after our wedding, my husband and I found out we were pregnant with twins! I continued working full-time from home after the twins were born while my husband finished his bachelor's degree in technology education. Upon his graduation, we moved across the country. We've since added another child to our family, continued in our jobs, and grew in our faith.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love Jesus Christ. I have a testimony that He, through His prophet Joseph Smith, restored His gospel to the earth for this day and age. I believe that He guides the Church today through our living prophet and other leaders. I know that He listens to our prayers and will answer us when we are sincere and willing to obey. The teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints reassure me that we can succeed in a difficult and sometimes scary world. I know that our Savior lives and loves each of us individually. I am a Mormon because I know that He lives!

How I live my faith

My husband and I currently both work with the youth in our ward. My husband is a middle school/high school teacher and loves being around teenagers. He works specifically with the young men in our ward. I teach Sunday School to the 14-15 year-olds. We both love being around the youth and learning from them. We also live our faith my teaching our children. We try hard to instill in our kids a love for Jesus Christ and a respect for other people.
