Hi I'm Leslie

I am a wife & a mother of 4 amazing kids. I love the beach, family time, and fitness. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I married the most wonderful man 23 years ago. I love being a mother and appreciate all the challenges that go along with it. I'm a personal trainer. I'm nuts about fitness (which I owe to my father) and I love to help others feel strong and healthy. My family means everything to me. My son is currently serving a full time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (The Mormons) in Honduras and I live for his emails each week!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, firstly, because I was raised that way. I am still a Mormon because I have been personally converted to the teachings of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know God loves me, knows me, and is involved in every detail of my life. I know that he answers my prayers. I can do hard things with my Heavenly Fathers help, and come out on the other end having learned much. Life can be so tough sometimes and having the knowledge that I'm not alone in raising my family, or living through painful experiences means the world to me. I know where I came from, why I'm here, and where I'm going. It's a beautiful plan and it makes perfect sense. I know these things to be true. I know because I am a Mormon. You can know it too.

How I live my faith

I have a very special job teaching the young women in our church ages 12-18 and I love it. Helping these young women to know, without a doubt, that God loves them and that they are divine in nature as daughters of God, brings me so much joy. The most important thing I try to help them remember is that life is hard and we are not perfect. Never throw in the towel because you think you'e not worthy of God's love. He loves us unconditionally. I know these precious girls look up to me. If that's not a reason to continue living my faith by example, then I don't know what is!
