Hi I'm Leah

I live in Oregon. I love acting and swimming. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I really like swimming. I can hold my breath for 55 seconds underwater, my favorite stroke is freestyle. I also like writing, and reading. I like writing short stories or poems. I read anything I can get my hands on, C.S. Lewis, Tolkien, Lloyd Alexander, Jenny Nimmo, J.K. Rowling. I also like theater. I like musicals a lot, the Tempest is my favorite Shakespeare play. I go to see the Shakespeare festival in Ashland Oregon with my family every summer. I also like playing with my dog Spartacus, and remodeling dollhouses.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church. I believe in it. Because I have had confirmation from the Holy Ghost. I know it is true. There is no doubt in my mind of how true it is. This doctrine we teach in our church is beautiful. It's just a beautiful gospel. I love living it, I know it's true.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday at 9:00 for 3 hours. Every Wednesday I go to church youth group for kids my age, it's a lot of fun. Every Morning and evening I say my personal prayer. I also pray before I eat, or if I need help for something. I'm on the youth dance committee, which means I help organize all the youth dances for my church area.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

I didn't always know the gospel was true, but to gain that knowledge, I prayed. I read The Book of Mormon, and prayed about it. I know that if you pray you will get an answer from God. I got an answer, and I'm strong in the church today. So just pray to know, ask Heavenly Father, and he will answer you. Show more Show less
