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 new 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.
Coming February 16, 2023!
These are a few of my favorite things...
In my opinion, you're never fully dressed without some bling, even at the gym. Accessories are my true love language.
From outdoor concerts to Sunday morning worship, I love the energy and emotion of experiencing music in person.
Chips & Salsa
I've never been sad at a Mexican restaurant. Pretty sure endless baskets of tortilla chips has something to do with it.
Even when I've lacked faith, God has been faithful. His goodness keeps me grounded when my world is falling apart.
