Hi I'm Michael Leishman

I am a member of the true Church of Jesus Christ. I do not doubt this church. I am a Mormon. I will always be a Mormon.

About Me

I about to leave on my mission for the Philippines. I have wanted to go on a mission for such a long time and I am so excited and nervous to go. In High School I was on the school's swim team for all four years. After I get home from my Mission I plan on going to BYU in Provo. Right now I am really interested in Chemistry, but I am unsure of what career to study in. I am looking into teaching, but am still undecided.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is true. I read the Book of Mormon and I prayed to Heavenly Father to know whether it was true. As I was on my knees I felt a voice speak in my mind. It said to me "You know that it is true." I do know that it is true. The Book of Mormon is true and if the Book of Mormon is true then Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God. If he was a prophet than he really did receive the priesthood and he really did receive all of the revelations that we have. If Joseph Smith was a prophet then currently Thomas S. Monson is the true living prophet. He is guided and directed by the Lord on what the church and the whole world must do so that everyone can return to live with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ in Heaven.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by not being afraid to share it. I know that this church is true. I do not doubt it. I willingly tell people about the church whenever possible. I tell them about me serving a mission, I tell people about my sister's mission, I talk about BYU. I tell my friends about seminary. When people ask me questions about what I believe and do I answer with confidence and do not shy away from the opportunity to share about the gospel.
