Michelle Lesley has always used writing as a creative outlet. As a child, she wrote poems and short stories. Later, she drew upon her experience in music ministry and ventured into songwriting. Journaling during her quiet time led Michelle into a deeper and more intimate relationship with God, and it is out of these journals that her first book, a women’s Bible study on the life of Jacob, grew.
As an army brat, Michelle has lived in some interesting places such as Alaska and New Mexico, but returned to her native Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in 1989. Here, she graduated from LSU with a degree in child and adolescent psychology, and did her master’s work in family counseling. She remains a die-hard Tiger fan.
Michelle and her husband have been blessed by the six wonderful children God has brought into their lives. Passionate about prayer, Michelle serves as the Associational Prayer Coordinator for the Baptist Association of Greater Baton Rouge, working with over 100 churches and pastors to increase corporate prayer. She also enjoys staying active at church, and home schools her three youngest children.
