"AND DO NOT BE CONFORMED TO THIS WORLD, BUT BE TRANSFORMED BY THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND, SO THAT YOU MAY PROVE WHAT THE WILL OF GOD IS, THAT WHICH IS GOOD AND ACCEPTABLE AND PERFECT."
We all have something in our lives we wish was different but which we feel powerless to change, whether it's a situation, a relationship, or a besetting behavior or sin that we just can't seem to overcome no matter what we do. We're left frustrated, defeated and maybe even bitter and hopeless about our inability to change and it causes great pain that affects every area of our lives.
But in Romans 12:2 God has given us the secret to real, lasting tranformation: Renewing of our minds.
See, God created mankind as 3-in-1 beings (1 Thess. 5:23). We are essentially spiritual beings made in God's image. We have a soul made up of our mind, emotions and will. And we live in a body. Our spirit is our God-consciousness, our body is our material-consciousness and our soul is the bridge between them which enables the life of the Spirit to be expressed in and through our body.
But what happens if the bridge is weakened and dysfunctional, or even worse, is in enemy hands?
The life of the Spirit to the body will be hindered or even choked off making it impossible for us to live in the abundance and grace of the Spirit, that's what.
We've tried to transform our lives by changing our behavior, but that's the way of the world and that's why it doesn't work.
No, God says the SOUL is the key to living the abundant, victorious, peace-filled life we all want and which Jesus died to give us. We've got to take the bridge back.
Transform your soul, transform your life.

A PASSION FOR CHRIST & HIS BODY
About two weeks into functional medicine practice back in 2011, upon hearing a tragic patient story that involved murder, grief, loss, transiency and abuse from a very young age, Leslie recognized that this patient's life experiences were manifesting in very clear correlative and destructive ways in her body. She realized that there was much, much more to health than just a correctly functioning body: she could balance hormones, fix cells, douse inflammation, detox and change lifestyle habits for her patients, but until she addressed the soulical (mind, emotions, will) and spiritual aspects of disease, her patients would not fully heal.
Now she practices 3-in-1 Medicine™ that addresses the physical, soulical and spiritual root causes of disease. Her method brings healing to the whole person through Christian spiritual formation and discipleship, Christ-centered pastoral counseling and renewing of the mind, and God-honoring functional medicine.
All Things New Health & Wellness is the call of God upon her life and she can't imagine any greater privilege than serving the Body of Christ in this healing ministry.
She is also wife to Joseph, mom to three amazing grown and flown kids, and "meme" to four beloved and cossetted grandkids. She loves being outside in nature, ballet, singing, gardening, cooking and knitting. Oh, and a killer Manhattan now and again!
"The time I spent with Leslie was revolutionary and I emerged from our time together as a new creation."
