I'm Leslee, an author and speaker who loves to share a little bit about a lot of things and a lot about the One thing that matters.

Growing up, my parents used to say I had a "call of God" on my life. It seemed like a lot to saddle on a tween who was more interested in memorizing the lyrics to Janet Jackson's Control album than memorizing scripture.
I figured they meant I had to be a missionary, a preacher, or marry one or the other. Personally, I wasn't interested in those options.
In an ironic turn of events, I actually married the son of a preacher man. But instead of taking my talents to serve the church, I spent the next 15 years climbing the corporate ladder and leading communications for several Fortune 100 companies.
Tween me, clearly more excited about Guess jeans than Jesus' birthday.
I love speaking and sharing a little bit about what God is teaching me.
It wasn't until my late 30s, after many years of trying to do it my way, that I finally told God I was done being in control. Then, through a series of circumstances, only He could orchestrate, I entered vocational ministry. No one was more shocked at this turn of events than me.
Today, I love encouraging women through speaking engagements and writing. And when I'm not doing one of those things, I can usually be found on the sidelines with my husband cheering on our two, sports-obsessed sons.
Through my stories, I love sharing what God is teaching me. But I also share important things like what shows I'm binging (The Crown and Ted Lasso are a few favs) or a great recipe for guacamole (which I'm still trying to perfect). I pray that you feel less alone and more loved in this great, big, digital world.
There's always a seat for you at my table.
We all have a story to tell.
This is mine.
My book, A Little Bit About a Lot of Things, is a journey through the funny, fearful, and unforgettable stories of my life, and how I learned to find freedom through them all.
Filled with moments from my childhood, marriage, motherhood, and career, I openly share how I've learned to overcome fear, let go of control, re-embrace my faith, and trust God when it doesn’t make sense.
Be it funny, fearful, or unforgettable, we all have a story to tell. This is mine.
