Hi I'm LEILA MARTINS

I am a teacher, choreographer, I love dancing and teaching. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for 16 years and am the mother of two children. I am a pedagogue and post-graduate teacher of physical education in dancing, which I have done since I was small. One of my personal accomplishments is teaching Jazz in a community in my city to around 120 students among whom are children, youth, and adults. I am also a teacher of fundamental teaching, another passion. I love my family and I know that they are the reason for my living and my happiness!

Why I am a Mormon

I asked myself, “Where am I going, why am I upon this earth, and is there life after death?” questions that perhaps, you have. When I became acquainted with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints those questions were clarified, and I believed! But not because someone simply told me what it was like, but because I asked our Eternal Father. I knelt down and prayed, and received the confirmation that touched me deeply and burned in my breast. I believe The Book of Mormon is the word of God, I believe in the eternity of families, and I know without a shadow of a doubt that I belong to the true Church of Jesus Christ. I am grateful for raising my children on the right path.

How I live my faith

I have been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for around 18 years, and I have always taught classes in the Church, to children, youth, and adults. I always do this with love and pride. I participate, actively, in cultural activities of the Church such as theater and dance. I am part of the group of women (Visiting Teachers) who visit members of the Church at least once per month, when through those visits we help, as members and as women. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I love my Savior, and I have a great testimony of the veracity of this Church and the plan of salvation. I am happy because being Mormon is being able to overcome our difficulties and being happy in this world. It was for this that I came!!!
