Leah Messer of Teen Mom 2 fame has reportedly turned to religion. The 22-year-old wife and mom has a lot to work through, including an ongoing drug problem. Her husband, Jeremy Calvert, also believes she cheated on him with an ex. And to top things off, Leah Messer is in the midst of a custody battle with ex-husband Corey Simms over the couple's twins, Ali and Aleeah.

“She started going to a church that embraces forgiveness and recovery. She’s determined to make a complete turn around,” a source told RadarOnline. “She’s finally ready to clean up the wreckage of her past.”

“For the first time, she’s admitting that money and the spotlight of fame made her do some things that she regrets,” the source added. “She’s determined to get the help she needs and come out of this a new and better person.”

Unfortunately it doesn't sound like Leah Messer has received enough divine intervention quite yet. She reportedly believes that if she were to become pregnant she could possibly salvage her marriage.

“She thinks a baby boy would make him happy,” another source explains. “Leah knows Jeremy would never leave her if she got pregnant again. He’s too much of a gentleman.”

Does that sound like a form of entrapment to you?

Finding religion is a wonderful thing if it's done for the right reasons. It sounds far more like Leah is trying to impress her husband and maybe even his family, too. Jeremy Calvert's family is deeply religious and won't allow their son to even consider filing for divorce--even though Leah Messer may have cheated on him.

Do you think Leah is truly finding answers in worshiping God at church? Or is she trying to convince her husband and his parents that she's someone she isn't. If that's the case, it will definitely backfire. Trying to be someone you're not hardly ever wins in the end.
