Discover how building your CORE

can CHANGE your LIFE

Learn the exact four steps you need to gain back your personal strength and dignity so that you can smile at the future unafraid. (Proverbs 31)

If you’ve been living in an emotionally destructive marriage for any length of time, you realize that you have some very difficult choices ahead of you. 

My question to you is this: 

Have the past strategies you’ve used to cope with your spouse or change this relationship made a real difference - or have they only driven you to exhaustion, despair, fear and resentment?

I know change is hard. And I know that change can be more than a little scary.

The truth is that most of us are only motivated to change when our current pain becomes greater than our fear of making a change!

Believe me, I get it!

Your negative emotions are warning you.  They’re telling you something’s wrong. PAY ATTENTION

Your negative emotions are warning you. They’re telling you something’s wrong.


So many women tell me that they try so hard to please, to love more, forgive again and again, to pray harder, to submit – only to end up feeling devalued and unloved, resentful and struggling to trust God.

If this is you, you CAN change even if your husband doesn’t. 

And, yes, you can make these changes in a way that both honors God and yourself – with no regrets.

You can become a healthy, strong woman of God

I want you to know that you can grow stronger and healthier, despite your destructive relationship and you can learn to do this without causing harm to yourself or others in the process.

In my Two Session Introduction to Building CORE Strength Class, I share how building your 4 CORE strengths will help you to: 

  • Discover your "Big Circle." 
  • Stop letting your strong emotions dictate how you react to tough situations. 
  • Understand the truth about who you are and how God sees you.
  • Be empowered to let go of resentment so that you can experience empathy and compassion without enabling destructive attitudes and behaviors to continue.

It is God’s will for you to become HIS version of you. Your true self, the woman God created you to become instead of trying to fit yourself into someone else’s prescribed role.

Yes, God calls you to be a biblical peacemaker – but not a peacekeeper, and especially not a peacefaker. Pretending is not healthy, especially when you’re dying inside. It is not God’s will for you.  

I want you to know that God is real and His word is true. Sadly, Scripture is too often used to control and shame a woman into compliance instead of healing and empowering her to mature and grow through a tough time.  

Over the years, I've seen up close the bad advice given to Christian women who are in destructive marriages. 

Maybe you’ve been the victim of bad advice based on twisted teaching that keeps you feeling stuck, living in fear – not able to make the right, bold choice to start to live in faith.

One of the most important things you’ll learn in this Two-Session Introduction to  Building CORE Strength Class is how to take the unhealthy (and unbiblical) pressure off yourself to be perfect and to learn to live peacefully, and joyfully, with your own weaknesses.

Learning to build your CORE Strength allows you to learn from your emotions and push past any false teaching about how God sees you and your marriage relationship.


Learning to build your  CORE Strength provides a deeper, healthier understanding of what you are responsible for and what you’re not responsible for.

Learning to build your CORE Strength equips and empowers you with specific, clear, biblical truths that most Christians don’t talk about along with ongoing support and encouragement from other participants.

And most of all, my Introduction to CORE Strength Class provides you a private, safe place to sample what it feels like to learn and grow with women who understand exactly where you’ve been – where you are – and where you desire to go in your journey toward hope and healing!

What Others Have Said...

I was in a destructive marriage for 30 years and have 4 children. For years I tried everything, praying, fasting, counseling, reading every book, counselors, intervention, marriage intensive, with no change. A friend led me to Leslie and I was amazed that for the first time I had a name for what was going on in my marriage. When Leslie shared that she was doing the Intro to CORE Strength Group I prayed and was able to be a part of it.

My biggest worry of course was money and time, I knew I needed to do all that I could to move toward hope and healing and changing destructive patterns.

Being part of the group and listening to the calls, and working through the material has changed not just my marriage situation but all my relationships and interactions with people to be more healthy.

I love that Leslie say’s that my sanity and safety was more important to the Lord than the institution of marriage. She encourages each person to be who the Lord created them to be and by having firm boundaries many sinners are turned from their sin. The Lord is for the oppressed and downtrodden and Leslie is helping many in these situations to find freedom in Christ. I am so excited that I feel like I have learned to walk in core strength and am seeing much fruit in my life and for the Kingdom.

What Others Have Said...

"I’ve been married for 20 years and have three children ranging in ages from 6-16. Fours years into our marriage our first child was born and problems between me and my spouse became more frequent I determined that I had not understood biblical submission and started on a path of deliberately yielding to my spouse and setting my own interests aside. This decision caused a shift in our relationship dynamic that had a detrimental effect on me as a person. As I struggled to “help” my husband and to be a more loving wife, he grew more volatile, demanding, and angry with me over time. 

Although I had read several of Leslie’s books and was familiar with CORE strength, putting it into practice seemed like an unattainable mystery to me. I could not imagine a way out of my situation and felt worn down, fearful, and isolated. However, after recognizing that there were countless others who were struggling under similar conditions and facing their fears, I was encouraged and signed up for the class.

I have experienced the greatest impact in my life in the areas of taking responsibility for myself and learning to face reality and no longer feel like a victim. During our phone sessions, it was especially beneficial to receive coaching on personal questions and to follow along as Leslie coached other group members. "

"I have been married for 33 years and have four children. I wasn't married very long until I knew there was something very wrong. My husband would be fine and then just like that would fly into a rage, would yell and curse and swear. I became an enabler, a people pleaser, a peace faker. 
I was so glad to be a part of the Intro To CORE strength class. I knew I needed to learn how to do this. 
All of the teaching was so helpful, especially the teaching on the roles of abuser, rescuer, and victim. Another one was the teaching on remembering the truth of who God says we are, and living in that truth. It was truly like cool water to someone who was very thirsty for the truth.
It is well worth the investment. I would advise anyone to go for it! Looking back on it now I would like to encourage anyone who takes the class to give yourself time to allow these truths to work their way into your daily living. For someone like me, who was stuck in unhealthy patterns for over 30 years, it takes time to change. Give yourself grace for the times that you blow it. It is an ongoing journey but Leslie is here to support you through all of it. "
