Hi I'm Leanne

I'm from Scotland, I love the gospel of Jesus Christ, I am a Missionary in the England London South Mission.

About Me

I grew up in Scotland, United Kingdom. My parents raised me in the church and for that I am so grateful. I'm currently a student at college studying to gain access to university to become a primary school teacher, I love working with kids and helping them to learn and grow I can't wait to have a classroom of my own filled with new young people each year ready to be inspired. I love fashion and beauty and believe that modesty is the key to true beauty. I'm preparing to serve a mission and am called to serve in the England London South Mission. I am so excited to have the opportunity to serve and cannot wait to be with the people of London!

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I believe that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the truest of all churches on the earth today and that this church was restored by the Prophet Joseph Smith under the direction of our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ having the full power and authority of God. I recognized from an early age how my family was different from others as we went to church and visited the temple and didn't do certain things. As I grew older I began to learn and understand the teachings of the church more and saw how it blessed us living as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I know that my family is one of the greatest blessings in my life and that God has provided a way for each of us to live with our families again after this life. I use that knowledge to direct my life so that I can live worthily of that blessing. I have also came to know my Saviour, Jesus Christ and know that he still lives today. I choose to try and follow his example and live a more righteous life. I also know that Jesus Christ died for me and lives again so that I may have that same gift of eternal life. He atoned for my sins and for the sins of the world, He has felt every pain and affliction that I have ever felt. That means through every bumped knee and every heartbreak he knows what I am going through and that because he knows I am never alone and I am never comfortless. I know that I have loving Heavenly Father who has not left his children to wander this earth alone he has sent prophets to the earth to help guide and direct us in the modern times.

How I live my faith

I love to teach it is one of my passions, I love passing on knowledge and helping people to gain a better understanding of things. I gladly accept and look forward to an opportunity to learn or teach and was thrilled to receive a calling to teach the sisters at church. This experience is helping me so much to learn of the Prophets and to get to know the sisters in my ward better. I also love to talk to my friends at college about the church as most of them don't know what a Mormon is we have many great discussions about the church.
