about leslie

Birthplace? Where did you grow up?

I was born in Birmingham, AL, and grew up in North Alabama.

How did you become a Christian?

As a child and teenager I visited churches with family and friends. I heard the Gospel but didn't commit my life to follow Christ until I was an adult. That commitment came as a result of a stay-at-home mom's Bible study group. I had joined the group to meet other mom's and for my daughter to have playtime with other children. While in the group I began doing more intense Bible study and was learning about having a personal relationship with Christ. After a few months I had to leave the group due to a work-related move, but the relationship with Christ has grown only stronger.

What do you do for free time?

In my free time I love to spend time with my family and friends. My husband and I like to watch movies or catch up on our favorite TV shows.

What's the craziest job you've ever had?

After high school I wasn't sure if I wanted to go any further with my education, so I got a job in a medical records department of a hospital in Huntsville. After spending months between rows of paper files to remove the oldest records, I was ready for higher education.

Favorite Bible verse?

Do everything in love. 1 Corinthians 16:14

What brought you to Connect Church?

I first visited just to spend time with my family right after we moved back to this area. The Holy Spirit told me to stay.
