Hi I'm Leesha

A Cadet, A Thrower, A runner, A Welder, And A Proud Mormon

About Me

I am from Southern Utah, I am the oldest of six children (Three boys and Three girls). I have three dogs, 12 chickens, and two guinea pigs that are apart of my family (Can you tell that we love animals?) I've participated with many things in my high school years some include: Debate team, Art Club, Year book, Track, and Cross Country. I love to read, write, draw, weld and well anything artistic (Yes! Welding is artistic!) I love anything military! I'm in the Civil Air Patrol program, which has given me so many leadership skills. I am pushing towards my Bachelor's Degree in Biology to become a Prosthetist and help develop prosthetics for those who have lost limbs, I hope to help out our Military Veterans for giving us our freedom. I converted to the LDS church at the age of 18 and the day after my confirmation, I started preparing for a mission. I have been assigned to labor in the Mexico Ciudad Obregón mission, and I feel absolutely blessed to be called as a missionary and being able to share the gospel with so many people. I'm a Thrower, A Runner, A Civil Air Patrol Cadet, A Welder, And a Proud Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I had an agnostic background, I believed in God but I did not believe that I needed him in my life. However, one day a friend invited me to church (for the third time) and I finally went with him. That Sunday, I listened to the sacrament talks with curiosity. One sister gave a talk about mission work, and after hearing it, I knew that I needed to serve a mission. I knew that it was something I was supposed to do. I started taking lessons with the missionaries after that, and after four months of learning from them, I was baptized along with my younger brother. Having the gospel in my life has been amazing. Knowing that I have a Heavenly Father who is always there for me no matter what, is the best feeling ever. It makes me happier then I have ever been, and I love it.

How I live my faith

So far, with the one year I've been a member, I have served three callings: Laural President, Stake Youth Council Representative and a Primary Teacher (I've learned plenty of patience in this calling!). I love serving the people in my ward as well as teaching with the missionaries in my City. I've learned so many things from my callings and from teaching and I love it! I can't wait to get my next calling as a Missionary and serve 24/7.
