Leslie has a love/hate relationship with writing. What motivates Leslie’s writing is her dream to share her message with as many people as possible. She envisions her writing as “shared journaling,” a means to foster trust, openness, and acceptance.

She likes to delve into topics that many people prefer to keep secret and are reticent to discuss. Having observed that many blogs only want change, she wonders when acceptance became a dirty word or a forgotten pursuit. Leslie wishes to explore the deepest, most revealing facets of life together with her readers and students. Journaling has been a part of her own healing and transformation, so Leslie finds this form of communication with others to be inspiring and authentic.
