Hi there! I’m Lee.
I am just a girl loved by a glorious God. I know extravagant mercy and deep forgiveness. The best parts of me must be Jesus. I enjoy laughing, rowdy board games, playing music loud with the windows rolled down and the beaches here in Michigan. I’m a Peeps aficionado, almond mocha drinker, Tex-Mex lover. A little bit quirky. A big helping of silly. And a thinker of deep thoughts and big ideas.
I am married to my college sweetheart, a farm boy through and through, Mike. It has been 15 years, WOW. I mean wow! Enough time to know that feelings ebb and flow, but that our commitment to the Lord will see us through mood swings, teething toddlers, and the changes of the season. Mike is a farmer. An impossibly hard worker. A lover of Jesus. Loyal. My favorite hello and worst goodbye.
If we were sitting knee to knee, I’d probably pull out a family picture and gab your ear off about our latest adventure. Because I’m pretty sure we just had one. I call our family “The Tribe.” Somewhere along the way the nickname stuck. I have four children that I love so much my heart could burst. They are introverted. Introverted. Extroverted. Extroverted. In that order. Biological. Adopted. Biological. Biological. Also in that order. I am a grace clinger where they are concerned, as nothing makes me squeal in delight, or kneel in desperation like my kids. I’m beginning to feel like a taxi cab, but I can’t say I mind much. I just love to be with them.
I am a city girl who lives 40 miles from the nearest Starbucks and Target, which occasionally makes me a desperate housewife. I live in a little town with a couple of blinkers and one stop light. We worship in a little church filled with people who live like the body of Christ. Our lives just a big jumbled heap. And I like it that way.
I am an Area Coordinator for Moms In Prayer International. I never thought prayer was my thing, I mean I did it, but I always felt prayer inept, if you know what I mean. But a few years ago the Lord gave me a crystal clear understanding of the underbelly of revival. I learned that PRAYER ALWAYS PRECEDES REVIVAL. Always. Shortly thereafter, I was introduced to MIP and their incredible ministry. Two passions intersected that day- my heart for the Word of God and my desire to see my children and their generation walk with the Lord. I’m not looking for one more thing to do, this ministry is VITAL, and I’m honored to be a part of what God is doing.
I am not who I was. I know God still does miracles because the change in my life is one of them. When I was 17 years old, I encountered God in His word and it set me free. It is one of the greatest joys of my life sharing His life giving Word with others. It is out of the overflow of that continuing love for freedom that I teach, speak and write. I pray this will be a place of growth and discovery for both of us.
Let’s not be strangers any longer. I can’t wait to get to know you.
