Bio

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.  Note-taking during her quiet time led Michelle into a deeper and more intimate relationship with God, and it was from these study notes that her first book, a women’s Bible study on the life of Jacob, was drawn.

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.  She loves being a stay at home, home schooling mom and enjoys reading, staying active at church and in women’s ministry, spending time with family, and training church ladies to be mighty “Amazon women” of God.

  1. Thanks for sharing your bio. I too home schooled my three, its the best gift I ever gave them, it was the most difficult thing I have ever done. Now my kids are adults and one is married. God gave me the grace to home school through my many health issues. Now its finding purpose and working with what I have. Most of my time is at home with my service dog Honey. I discovered that I enjoy researching. It started with researching Beth Moore and others. Its amazing that with even all my limitation God gives me the strength to do what’s most important, sharing the truth with my sisters in the Lord and encouraging them with their various afflictions and health problems. Who can better relate? I have twenty years health issues and its worth it if I can bring encouragement and prayer to another hurting sister. Your blog and other Christian blogs give me a lot of encouragement. You have so much helpful information that I’m sharing with my pastor on Beth Moore. Thank you Linda

    Could you give us a list of “recommended” authors and speakers? Thanks.

  3. Michelle, I’ve enjoyed browsing your site and seeing whom you recommend. You might also be able to recommend the Mousers (http://www.5aspects.org) – not sure if you are familiar with them and their teaching on Biblical roles but you might enjoy checking it out.

  4. Hi Michelle! I did a google search on Kay Arthur and her teaching and I came across your blog. I have now spent a few hours reading as much as I can. Thank you for all your research and energy you’ve put into this site!

    Have you heard of Leslie Ludy? I’ve recently started listening to her podcast and I sometimes listen to her husband’s Sunday sermon. So far, I haven’t heard anything unbiblical but your site has shown me how easy it is to be led astray.

    Thank you again for sharing your wisdom. I can see your passion to help keep women on the narrow path!

    • Thanks, Gaylene!

      Yes, I’m slightly familiar with Leslie and Eric. I have listened to one or two of his sermons over the years, but that’s about it. I’ve never listened to/read her at all. Is her podcast called “Set Apart Girl”? If so, I have just downloaded it and will give it a listen. In the mean time, this article may be helpful to you in researching her further.
