Hi I'm Sister-Michaela Leavitt

I live in Grand Junction, Colorado. I have worked for two law firms. I love to dance. I'm now serving in the Arizona Mesa Mission.

About Me

I absolutely love to dance and I will be minoring in dance in college. I was a part of color guard for six years spinning a flag, rifle, and saber with my class mates. When I graduated high school, I became an assistant coach for the guard. In my family we have a couple of horses that we enjoy riding around our property and the beautiful Colorado country side. I alsoMlove to go out climbing up and around and through the cracks in the rocks!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know it is Christ's church restored to the earth in these Latter days. I know that the church Christ set up while He was alive and ministering is Heavenly Father's church on the earth. I know that it is the one church that has the proper authority from Heavenly Father to perform saving ordinances such as Baptism and marriage/sealing for all time and eternity. I know that this church is guided by a living prophet called of God. I know that he holds all the keys of the church under the direction and authority of our Heavenly Father through His son Jesus Christ. I dearly want to return to my Father in Heaven and be able to live with my family for all eternity. I know that it is only by living the principles and doctrines outlined in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints that I can be saved and experience eternal joy in the Kingdom of our Father.

How I live my faith

While I was in the Young Women's program I was either the counselor or the president throughout my Beehive, Mia Maid, and Laurel,s classes. Once I moved into the Young Single Adult ward, or the college-aged ward, I became a Relief Society Instructor. I loved this calling. I would prepare a lesson every third Sunday of the month from a church approved manual. I loved studying the lesson and giving it to the wonderful sisters of the ward. Their answers to the questions I asked were always guided by the Spirit. I hope that some day I will be able to be a teacher once again.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Sister-Michaela Leavitt
I have read the Book of Mormon and I have come to find out for my self that this book truly is a book that can answer any question I have. I know that it testifies of the love our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have for each and every one of us. I know that it is a guide and a tool I use in my life and I love to share it with my friends and family. Show more Show less

In whom should we have faith?

Sister-Michaela Leavitt
We should always put our faith in the Savior Jesus Christ. He did everything for us so we can return to live with our father in Heaven. This includes helping us repent of our sins and to strengthen our weaknesses. Since He did this, we can put our faith in Him that He can help us as we are turning to God. Show more Show less
