Hi I'm Leslie

I grew up in small towns in Utah. I love the out of doors and especially hiking. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am the oldest of four children. I grew up in many small towns in Utah. I had 5 children and was widowed at a young age. I later remarried and my husband and I raised 10 children together. My husband and I both went back to school while raising the children. After graduating from college He worked as a teacher and I worked with visually impaired children and started a toddler class. We both retired 3 years ago and have enjoyed the freedom to be temple workers, travel, do more outdoor activities, and spend more time with our family. We just got our mission call to Georgia and are so excited to serve a full time mission.

Why I am a Mormon

There are so many reasons why I have chosen to belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. I have always believed the teachings were true from the time I was a small girl. I have had personal experiences that have helped that belief become stronger. Especially during difficult trials and struggles I have felt the love of the Lord lifting and carrying me through. I have been so very blessed to have felt the power that comes through prayer. I have a great love of the temple and have been blessed each time I enter those holy doors. I have spent much time this past year studying the Atonement of my Savior. I am coming to understand just a little the strength and enabling power that it can bring into my daily life. I love the Lord and am so grateful for all he blesses me with.

How I live my faith

I have taught in many different capacities in my church callings; Women, Young Women, Sunday School, and youth. I have been a temple worker for many years, worked with my husband in an Inner City Mission, and worked as a missionary in the Addiction Recovery Program.
