Welcome to my corner of the planet! I'm a writer, speaker and teacher who lives on 2 islands in Alaska. Though planted firmly in place, I'm a wanderer, looking everywhere for God's goodness and beauty. I promise to pass on through camera and words what I find each week. Would you come with me?

Here in these pages you'll find my books, articles, workshops, speaking schedule and tons of photos from my life in the Alaskan wilderness. Thanks for stopping in!

"I am the pastor of a small congregation, most of whom are over age 50. I’ve been dismayed by the lack of substantive reading for the women in my congregation. This book addresses that need beautifully. The authors of the essays are largely familiar to my people and are well-known for their spiritual wisdom. The essays are not stale, however, and are full of fresh insight, humor and grace. Thank you, Leslie, for an excellent compilation." - ALM Stewart

"From striving to thriving, this book encourages a woman to grasp with wonder her mid-to-late life! The stories told here reminded me of how much we, as women, have in common with one another; and how much God's purpose and love propel us with hope and triumph into our sunset! I laughed, I cried, I rejoiced! A recommended read for women of all ages. You won't be disappointed." - Kelly Greer
