She has been active at the Center since 1998 serving in education classes, our youth program, and praying in Grinton Chapel. Her deepest calling is animal ministry.

This year I lost my 30 year old mare, Lydia, who I'd owned for 23 years. It was a devastating loss for me, greater than I ever anticipated. My grief was deep and long-lasting. I am so happy and grateful that Leslie had been instrumental in starting a remembrance ceremony for animals. For me it came at the right time, and it was so sweet and touching. I will always treasure that healing time. By her manner and endeavor to provide service and connection; her spiritual presence there is no doubt in my mind that this is her spiritual calling. —R.B.

What Is A Prayer Partner and Where Do I Get One?

A Prayer Partner is someone who agrees to exchange prayers with you for an agreed upon period of time. A partnership can be formed for an initial period of time, for example six months, and then concluded or extended as desired.

Prayer Partners do not need to meet in person. You can exchange prayer requests on e-mail, or a weekly telephone call.

Some people prefer to talk on the phone, exchange prayer requests, and pray right there on the phone. Others prefer to exchange the prayer request on e-mail and go about praying in their own time and at their own pace.

Key elements to a successful prayer partnership is a regular schedule of meeting and exchanging prayers. Make a date once a week to connect and stick to it.

It is recommended that the partnership and meeting be restricted to the activity of exchanging prayer and praying and not be extended into socializing.
