So You Think You Can Speak?
What qualifies Leah to speak?
First and foremost, a heart totally in love with Jesus and a desire to communicate that love to others. Leah teaches ladies Bible study groups in her hometown. She is a graduate of CLASS, the premier Christian speaker training organization in the United States. Prior to being called to ministry, Leah spent extensive time teaching physicians and other medical personnel about medical therapies used to treat cholesterol disorders. She has lectured for various pharmaceutical companies on the specifics of medications. Leah is totally comfortable in front of audiences–large or small. Read more about Leah’s speaking journey here.

Sample Messages and Retreat Packages
Legacy – What Are You Leaving for the Generations That Come Behind You?
This can be a single message or a 2-3 message retreat package
This is Leah’s signature message and the one upon which her Bible study is based
When you and I leave this earth, each of us will leave a legacy to those who come behind us. In this message, Leah reminds her hearers of the things that make up our legacy and how each of us is solely responsible for what our legacy looks like. The grace of God spills forth over all who hear this message as Leah encourages with reminders of those in the Bible who left legacies after which we can pattern our lives.
Purity, Legacy, and Modesty – Weekend Retreat for girls and young women
In this 2-3 message retreat series, Leah uses a biblical approach to teach young women the importance of sexual purity and modesty in dress and actions. By helping them understand God’s design for sexual purity and the importance of the marriage covenant, Leah leads young women to consider why it is important to them to remain pure. Our world simply says, “Don’t have sex”. Leah shares, in a no-holds barred fashion and using her personal testimony, why purity matters and modesty rocks.
Based on the much loved quote from Charles Spurgeon that speaks of the goodness and wisdom of God, Leah speaks directly to her hearers about ways that we can observe those attributes of God and apply them directly to our lives in order to build our faith and trust in God—in the good times and in the bad. Using interesting stories and analogies, Leah teaches truth about the grace and love of Jesus Christ for His children.
Stepping Out in Faith
In this message, Leah applies the story of Joshua and the children of Israel crossing over the Jordon River into the Promised land to encourage Christians to step out in faith and watch God roll back the “Jordans” in their lives.
Shame is not God’s Game
Using a powerful visual display, Leah encourages the listener to not accept the shame that Satan tries to heap on those who have ‘messed up’ in their past—which includes most of the human race! The grace that is offered by the blood of Jesus Christ is the cure for shame and Leah’s message is a sweet balm to the heart that is hurting because of shame.
Two to three message event package
This beautiful Psalm from the Psalms of Ascent provides ample opportunity to focus on the protective nature of our loving heavenly Father, as well as the tendency we have to lift our eyes to things and people other than God. In addition, Leah uses Psalm 23 and the partaking of communion to offer a time of reflection at the end of the retreat.
Answer the Call—Be A Blessing
As she teaches from corresponding passages in the Old and New Testaments, Leah reminds the listener of Abraham’s call to an intimate walk with God. Then, using both Abraham and Jesus Christ as examples, she goes on to encourage today’s Christian to answer the call that God has placed on their life.

Meeting Leah at our Ladies Holiday Dinner and hearing her message on Creating a Godly Legacy was a blessing!!! I continue to be amazed at how God puts the right people/messages in our lives at just the right time.
I have been wanting to lead a bible study in my home but had not come up on the right one. So… it was to me totally a “God wink” to have Leah speak on this topic. It truly spoke to my heart. As a new mom, this is a very important topic to me. My husband, Scott and I want to leave for Jacob (and any future children God may bless us with) a godly legacy like the one his parents left, like the one my mom left. We pray every night for God’s guidance in our rearing of Jacob.
Next month, a small group will be gathering at my house on Thursday nights to begin Leah’s study- From The Trash Pile To The Treasure Chest: Creating a Godly Legacy. I have already begun it myself, and I know it will be a blessing to all of us! Thanks to Leah once again for the amazing work that she allows God to work through her. I pray God’s blessing on Leah,her family and her ministry.
