Hi I'm Leisha

I'm a daughter, sister, and my most favorite an aunt. I'm a machine quilter. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised in a family of 6 children, in Utah. We each were taught from a very young age the importance of the gospel of Jesus Christ, by faithful loving parents and grandparents. Their encouragement and examples have helped each of us become the independent adults we are today. I graduated in interior design, and later because of my love for sewing I became a long arm machine quilter. I've had the opportunity to meet and work so many wonderful people, and feel so blessed to do something I love. I love spending time with my family, my greatest joy however is being an aunt. I am so blessed.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, simply, because I know with everything in me that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true. Because I've had many sacred experiences, I've not doubted or questioned what I believe. Those experiences have become the foundation to my testimony which continues to grow. As I'm obedient and follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, I will become more like the daughter my Heavenly Father intends me to be and I will continue to be blessed with a greater hope and happiness. I am a firm believer that each of us has the hand of God in the details of our lives. There is always something to be grateful for, even in the struggles that we each face. After graduating from Interior Design school I got very sick, and it was difficult to find a job. I'm grateful for my very supportive parents and family, even more grateful for our loving Heavenly Father. He has blessed me with gifts that are beyond anything I thought I would ever be capable of. My mom taught me how to sew quilts to give me something to take my mind off of how sick I was, and soon I developed a great love for it. Then a couple of years later she was inspired to buy a long arm quilting machine, and little did we know it was going to become a great opportunity for me. Through the talents our Heavenly Father has given me, I've been able to develop a great love and passion for machine quilting. As I faithfully pay my tithing, I continue to have new opportunities come my way. The hand of God truly is in the details of our lives. Being a Mormon is a way of life, I'm not perfect but as I strive to be more like Jesus Christ each day I have a greater sense of who I am and where I am going.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing things each day that will bring me closer to and build my faith in our loving Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ. I decided when I was 19 that daily scripture study and prayer were vital to my spiritual growth, and it is something no one else could do for me. It brings a sense of peace and love from God into my life, that I haven't found anywhere else. Over time, through prayer and faith, I've learned how to rely on my Heavenly Father and Savior, and know that no matter what They both love me unconditionally. Now that I'm in my 30's, I continue to find guidance through the scriptures and prayer as I deal with the difficult trials that mortality brings. Even though I struggle daily with health problems, I feel the hand of our Savior in my life, and know through the power of His atonement I can be strengthened and my burdens can be lightened. As I've learned how important and loved I am by our Heavenly Father and Savior, I've desired for others to feel that same love and importance. Through Christlike love and kindness we can each bless the lives of those around us, and that is what the gospel of Jesus Christ is all about.
