Hi I'm Leah Pinch

I grew up in Ontario Canada. My sisters are 12 and 16. I love nature. I like helping people and playing soccer. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I like nature and watching movies. I like soccer. I have EDS Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. I like to be environmentally friendly. I feel the spirit very strong when I am outdoors because I know God created every living thing. I have a lizard and a lot of fish. I love music and hanging out with friends. I go to church every Sunday for three hours. I love being a Mormon! If your not Mormon you should talk to missionaries! They love to answer questions and help in anyway they can!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I was born into the church. I choose to be a Mormon because I know it is true. I know that Heavenly Father wants me to be able to see him again. I know that he wants me to be able to be sealed to my family in the temple so we may follow him. That I may be able to see my children grow up in the gospel and be married so that they may be able to return to live with our Heavenly Father. I have felt his love and I know that by following the Saviours teachings I will be able to live with them again. That I may be able to have true happiness and peace in this life and through eternity. This is why I choose to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I was a ward missionary and family home evening coordinator for the YSA Branch. Right now I am living my faith by going to church, reading my scriptures and praying. I work to come unto Christ and to try to become a better person.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Missionaries are not required to serve a mission however it is strongly recommend for Young Men in the church. The church asks them to serve a mission. Sisters can serves missions as well. They are allowed to go if they feel they have a desire to go. Brothers however are more expected to serve a mission. Men can serve a mission at age 18. They serve for 2 years. Sisters can serve a mission at 19. They serve a mission for 18months. As well married couples and retired couples can serve missions as well. Show more Show less
