Hi! I’m Leigh Ann.
Growing up I was considered a good kid. As the oldest of three, I fit the stereotypical role of first-born in just about everything. On the outside, everything seemed fine, but on the inside and behind closed doors things were not what they seemed. All was not well with my soul.
As I’ve reflected over the decades of my life I’ve often wondered what would have been different if I had been given the gift of discipleship sooner. What if I had known the teachings of Jesus and how to follow them as a young child? What if I had experienced the deep love of Jesus and those who claim to follow Him sooner? What if I had known how to find my way around the sacred Scriptures on my own? What if?
Of course, we cannot undo what’s been done, but it is this testimony of desire for something different that drives my determination and decision to foster a community of discipleship in my own life. Jesus secured my soul in the spring of 2007, and I’ve been on a mission ever since to know the One who saved my soul and make Him known in whatever I do.
Currently, I’m pursuing my Master of Divinity at Fuller Theological Seminary. I’m a writer and a researcher, a deep thinker with more questions than I will likely ever find answers to in this lifetime. I value deeply honesty, presence, and faithfulness. I’m a seeker of community and a lover of creation. I’m also the wife of the man of my prayers and homeschooling mom of four.
I want you to know that I’m so glad you’re here. This space is one where I hope you will find room to simply breathe and know you are loved. Intentional living can easily become another thing on your to-do list, but if I’ve learned anything in my years of pursuing holiness, it’s this. You are first a human being. You must learn to be in order to ever be effective at doing. So, rest, my friend. That’s my hope and prayer for you as you pursue the path that leads to life.
If you want to stay in touch, you can sign up for my emails here. I’d love to be part of helping you live a theologically-informed intentional life.
